Well, it’s good to be home. Here is what I missed most, in order of priority: my kids, my own organic coffee, my own shower, and my own bed. But even though it was an epic challenge of a trip, I am glad I went…not so much for the big moments but for the little ones.
But the farther we got from Washington, the more things seemed to return to normal. I remember that from living in DC back in 1986. When you are inside the Beltway, everyone lives and breathes politics all the time. Outside of it, the rest of us live regular lives and dip our toes in the political pool when things are interesting. Now that I am home I am actually looking forward to SEEING the inauguration on TV.
