Inauguration blog - Pt 2 - Jan 19, 2009

I know you've been eagerly awaiting the news... so here it is, the second installment in my grand adventure.

Let's just cut to the chase. We actually bought Depends. No lie.

And the amazing thing is, you can't just go to the store and buy Depends. Oh no! That would be waaaaay too easy. There are a MILLION decisions to make. And don't be fooled by the small little pads that look like they would be an acceptable option. Oh no, those are just for "leaks." Rest assured, not a mistake you want to make. So after about 15 minutes in the FREAKING DIAPER AISLE, we made our choice. The entire time we were there, I was getting vaguely sick to my stomach.

And just to clarify, we're not wearing them tomorrow (thank the goddess)--we're just bringing them for an emergency, the idea being that we could find a place to hide, tuck it "in," and then use it. Brilliant really, except for the ENTIRE DISGUSTING PLAN. But thank you Casey, for testing it out for us this afternoon. Phew!

On a completely unrelated note, let me tell you how hard it is to find an old-school am/fm radio. Thank you Radio Shack! Thank you NOT, Best Buy, Target, WalMart, and Circuit City. Apparently, no one listens to radio any more. Did you know that? OMG!

So, just before I sat down to write this (which has taken forever because I am simultaneously looking up big players in Greek mythology as Casey studies for her exam on Wednesday), we had packed clear ziplock bags with bottled water (never going to drink it--see the above paragraph about the Depends), cereal bars, apples, PBJs, napkins, kleenex (doubles as TP), and baby wipes. Tomorrow it's a 2:30 wake-up call for coffee and shower, wake the kids at 3, leave at 3:40 to get in line for the 4:15 shuttle. Remembering, of course, how often I'm going TO BED at 2:30! OMG!

Think of me tomorrow morning as you're rolling over in your warm snuggy bed, and then drinking coffee in a heated store, and then enjoying the ceremonies on TV.

Big sigh.
