Inauguration Trumps Idol


I can't blog about Idol tonight. In fact, I can't even watch Idol tonight. 

I've been glued to my television all day looong watching the inauguration and I'm afraid my eyes will fall out if I spend another minute in front of a screen of any sort. But I'll DVR tonight's episode and watch a double-header on Wednesday evening and report back ASAP. 

I'm exhausted. I can't imagine how the Obamas are feeling right about now. Overwhelmed? Exhilarated? Invigorated? Astounded? Amazed? I think probably exhausted. I need a nap just thinking about their day. And to think they have 10 inaugural balls to attend this evening. 

As much as they inspire and motivate me, I'm afraid I don't have it in me tonight to emulate their energy and devotion. While they party with the big dogs, I'll be curled up in my bed reading a good book and then dreaming sweet dreams....

It IS like a sweet dream. Such happy exhaustion. Love that pic of the adorable Sasha and her amazing family. What a day, what day. What an amazing day. I just keep thinking how it all could have been so different. But it turned so right. Now on to fixing the economy and ending the wars and all. He'll need a good night sleep. Sweet dreams!

That is my favorite photo of the day. I could eat that kid up with a spoon. I don't know how he stands her cuteness...
