Hubby Youtubed all of the Inauguration Addresses since Kennedy today. Guess what. They were all going to change the same things. Guess what. Whomever is next, is going to change the same thing.
I'll let you in on a little secret. NO ONE CAN CHANGE YOU - BUT YOU. Sucks don't it? It means if you don't like where you are right now, it's your fault. I know there are THINGS that happen to us that can cause some unhappiness, circumstances beyond our control. But once you get stuck there waiting for someone else to bail you out, as it were, it's over.
Now, while I did not vote for Obama I do respect the office. I am very thankful to our founding fathers who knew enough about how not to do it, set it up so that change one way or another is not an overnight thing. This goes for the last administration too.

I will concede that if nothing else, this whole thing has gotten people really excited. My Other Dad, sent us an email earlier saying that he hadn't paid attention to politics since Kennedy and after Obama's speech today he's proud to be an American. Yeah! I want that for everyone. I FREAKIN' LOVE AMERICA. I want everyone to love it as much as I do. Our founding father's did a great job setting up this land of ours so that no one person has so much power. I don't think that Obama can change ANYTHING personally. But, if he can get people to fall in love with this great country, then great, we all win.
With that said, I'm going to bed, someone Tweet me if the change comes while I'm asleep.
