The Bush era is almost over and for someone who listens to Democracy Now every morning where I get to hear sound bites of absurd things he says and then proceed to yell back at the radio, this is going to be fabulous for my emotional well being. (was that a super long run on sentence?)
So, I honestly had fantasies of going to the inaguration but I guess the good luck fairy decided to favor Sienna and Tony instead. (I am super happy for you guys btw)
On Tuesday I will be on the other side of the country smiling my face off celebrating the presidential inauguration of MR. BARACK OBAMA (whoot, whoot). Every time I say his name it comes out in a super high pitched voice because I'm so excited I can't help but squeal in delight.
On Tuesday Morning we are hosting a presidential breakfast at our place and projecting the inauguration on the wall. At night we are SO going to an inaugural ball that is being held here at school. I get a new president and I get to wear a fancy dress all in one day?! SWEET!!!
What are your plans for the big day?
I saw this on the NY Times and think you should take a look. Meet Obama's people.
As for our family...
we haven't taken many pictures since we've been back b/c there is really nothing to take pictures of hence this long post without any pictures (everybody's favorite).
I am having the hardest semester of my life. It doesn't help that I am exhausted and have started sleeping in my classes. It also doesn't help that I am TAing a class about the Middle Ages, have 60 students, and know NOTHING about the subject. I am also completely demoralized trying to sort of kind of not really do my thesis. Remind me in a couple years when I apply for a PhD program what I just said.
Christian is fabulously staying healthy while Enzo and I remain sick. He has the easiest TAship in the history if TAships and he likes to remind me of this on a daily basis.
Enzo is talking up a storm. He woke up yesterday cracking up. He was laughing hysterically because he said that in his head when he was sleeping he saw ducks jumping on a trampoline. I thought it was pretty funny and decided to take him to go see some ducks at the pond. He was super unhappy with them just being ducks and not jumping on a trampoline. He's obsessed with the color pink. He wants to wear pink every day but doesn't really own any pink things. To make up for the lack of pink around the house I made him a huge batch of pink play-do which he is super excited about and likes to use the heart shaped cookie cutter to cut hearts with. I think he'll really be into Valentine's day this year.
I was going to only write about the Obama thing but since I haven't blogged in a while I decided to give you the low down on the fam.
sorry for the super long post. I promise to put up some pictures next time.
