Somewhere in the middle of 2010, President Obama must have said to himself, just one more term . . . I kind of know the feeling. About 5 months ago, I said to myself, just one more day, and I've been repeating that to myself on a daily basis ever since. I looked up what it cost for him to get 1,461 days, a four year term, and it was really quite startling. With a little math on my part, I figured that each extra day he won costs about $674,196. He has a lot of friends and quite happily so do I, but it is highly unlikely that I could get them to fork over that amount of money so I could have just one more day.
I do get a lot done in the avarage 17 hours that I'm awake, but I always want to do more. I probably would if I didn't depend on sleep so much. So what I do have is today and in that time and if I can get done just what I plan to do I will be a happy girl: finish Lifeguard, buy extra wool roving, go food shopping, pay bills, do three more loads of laundry, walk for 40 minutes, finish a photobook for my son, buy a new gridded notebook and Photoshop 11 . . .
I wanted to give you a song and all I could find was Otis Redding's Just One More Day but it is sad and painful to listen to because it's about break ups and misunderstandings and regret and I'm just not into that now. There's One More Day sung by Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables, which is about break ups and misunderstandings and regret during The French Revolution, and I'm really not into that right now.
So from where I'm sitting, the Inauguration starts in a little while, so why don't we go watch that? Let's wish President Obama well and support him during the next 1,461 days. That's already on my list.
