I didn’t watch the inauguration

January 20, 2009

I did help set up streaming video in our atrium and two classrooms, and my boss sent out instructions for how people could watch in their offices.  But I am exhausted and today I just tried to keep up and not be grumpy; my head is full of the noise of pain.

Life goes on in myriad ways even as history is made.  last night I was in too much pain to sleep and drugs weren’t helping.  I tossed and dozed fitfully until about 4 when my cat plastered himself against my chest and began to purr.  I went to sleep until 6 when i was awakened by a pain dream.

Now the intertubes are full of insightful, beautifully-written posts by my favorite bloggers, but I can’t make sense out of them. I marked them for later attention in myu rss feed and am off to do some cardio and shower.  Our new president is at the helm and I can hear the ship creak as it begins to change direction.  It’s a good sound.

    All I can say is that for me there were tears of joy, but perhaps even more of relief.

    Hope you feel better very soon.

    I finally exhaled.

    I hope you are feeling better.

    Justice, you said it for me. 

    George, darling, I don’t make it by for a few days and then I find you in agony!  That’s not right.  I hope that pain goes the way of George Bush – out of sight, nearly out of mind, and no longer bothering you!

    Thank you!  I am starting to feel better.  This happens less frequently than it used to.

    Exhale is the right word: I was thinking about the Secret Service, hoping they’d keep anything bad from happening.
