What to do today...

I'm back to making a list of the things I need to do each day.
This list should say Tuesday, though, or else I'm really behind. It feels like a Monday...

My rules for making to do list:

  1. You don't need to write down the essentials; like: brush teeth, read scriptures... {Here's a little something that will embarrass my dad. When I was little my dad had his daily to do list posted at his desk and it read: read newspaper, ..., go hockey} never mind embarrassing my dad, I'm embarrassed.}

  2. You have to throw in a couple of easy tasks so you have something to cross off for the day if you get side tracked.

Side tracked already.

Okay, now I really am behind. I'm watching the inauguration. Not on my to do list. Love Aretha's hat. Could I get away with wearing that hat? I didn't think so. I wasn't going to watch this because I didn't vote for Barack H. Obama but I couldn't stand not participating in history. How could I admit to my posterity one day, that I was working on my list of things to do for the day instead of watching the "greatest day...blah,blah,blah...."It is exciting however, that we have the first African American for president. It could've been the first woman as president, or the first Mormon as president. So sorry Brother Romney.

We were represented though.

Thanks Brother Bennett from Utah, for introducing the Chief Justice.

Picture of Andrew being really annoyed that his PBS morning cartoons were interrupted with this boring special report of the inauguration.

Let freedom ring. I can never resist taking a picture of Old Glory.

Was it just me or did it seem that Barrack had a hard time

repeating the oath of office after Chief Justice John Roberts?

Hopefully, just nerves.

Revised: I found out the next morning from the smarties on GMA that it was actually the Chief Justice, John Roberts, that made the mistake and that Prs. Obama was correcting him. I need to study up on my US Government facts. So my mistake. It wasn't his nerves. It was John Roberts.

Now back to my to do list.

Nola, I didn't vote for Barack, either, but it was just so exciting to watch the inauguration. I think if we hadn't watched, we would have been among the very few! I love your to do list (you'll have to share some tips that you learn in your blog class!! How FUN!) and I love your rules, too!! You are so cute and so funny, and YES, I think you could get away with wearing Aretha's hat!! Oh, and I feel for Andrew!!

interesting....I had that very same impression!

I read that Obama purposefully didn't repeat the oath the first time because it was read incorrectly to him. That may just be a myth though:) I got a little emotional during the music. Even during Aretha until I realized how awful she sounded and I actually became annoyed at such a dreadful performance. Her glory days are just over. Anyway, hopefully there's a "reason" I was emotional besides watching the inaguration....I'm having some symptoms!!!
