File Under: Emotional conflict
Yesterday was a really happy day for so many of us. Inauguration day, a new president, a fresh start. It was all very exciting to watch everything unfold. Last night as I was watching our Preident and First Lady attend all the parties, I started to feel a bit sad.
I got to thinking back to November 4, election night. It was a date night with Matthew and he cooked dinner for us and we drank wine and watched the results. It was a really happy night for a number of reasons, the biggest reason was Obama's win. It was a really good night. The Inauguration and all of the pagentry surrounding it just had me reminiscing about some of the happy times, and I found myself missing him.
Then Cher walked in, stared me down, slapped me, then slapped me again and said "Snap out of it." Well, not exactly, but I managed to remind myself of some of the less pleasant times that followed and the mood passed.
So there you have it.
