I Can't Help It...

I am glued to the tv set. I watched the Today show... and then I had to watch The View. I did manage to get a few things done today... but life stopped for Oprah. Plain and simple... I had to watch... I've never been big on politics, but after all, this is History in the making. This is Real Life Change... happening before our very eyes.

I am fascinated with the Obama family, and Michele in particular. I am also feeling a little bit of sadness for the Bush family. I am trying to remember if there was as much fanfare 8 years ago with the change in administration, not that it matters. But, I still feel bad for them as they leave office... and that no one has ANYTHING nice to say. (Hey, I understand that he has the lowest approval rating ever. And that we are still at war in Iraq. And... And... And...) Yeah, he's a lame duck... but lets put the rocks away and let them go into the sunset, nicely and with some dignity.

Well... I will be watching tomorrow. I do have to go out... but I will try to go after the inaugural and parade. Not much else is happening here. We are finally into double digits for the weather, and I actually went out with the dog, and noticed that even with the snow from yesterday, the driveway has melted off and Nolli was able to stick his face down in the snow and it wasn't icy! Ah... the joy of little things!

*** UPDATE *** The DH took me out to the store tonight! I don't have to leave the house tomorrow except to walk the dog... and maybe go to the flower shop for a visit! And.... Welcome, Lisa... she's a new follower as of today! I hope she decides to stick around and read my silly stuff! Oh... and I redeemed some of my rewards points... I've got 2! 2! TJ Maxx/Marshalls gift cards to go shopping with!!!! WoooHooo!

Thanks for reading... Be blessed~ See ya 'round the tv tomorrow!
