oh happy day

It’s here, everyone! It’s finally, really here! Today is the day we wave goodbye to Bush and welcome Obama!

To kick off the day, I’m joining in with
Lisa at My Ecdysis and virtually throwing my shoe at President Bush as he leaves office. It’s about time I got rid of these, anyway:

(if only the bowling ball came with the shoes…)

This morning on the way in to work, I cried when I realized that this is it, the end of a really crappy eight years. I am hopeful and optimistic that Obama will be a better man, a better leader. I am hopeful that today is a turning point, and we are turning in the right direction.

Sweet Jesus, I am so excited.
