He loves me!

Today, was one of those days where I just have to remind myself of how lucky I am. Why? Well, because today, my hubs, accompanied me to an event that he had absolutely no desire to attend. He didn't complain, although he did ask that we go a bit later in the day, but he did not complain. He was also incredibly sick this morning and he didn't try to use that as an excuse not to go. I told him I would be fine going by myself, but he wouldn't hear of such a thing.

My hubs may not have the best taste in O's paraphernalia or give the perfect blow-out, but he does keep his word. He promised me weeks ago that he would brave the crowds and see President-Elect Obama today when he gave a speech in Baltimore. I really thought the sub-freezing temperatures would be a deal-breaker. I should know better by now than to underestimate him.

The hubs and I are avoiding D.C. this week due to the sheer craziness expected with Obama's inauguration. While the hubs and I don't agree on politics, we both realized that we should go to hear Obama speak while he was in Baltimore. Ultimately, it came down to us thinking, "Will we feel comfortable telling our (potential) children that we were too lazy to see Obama while he was 20 minutes away?" We put aside our differences and hopped on the light rail heading for downtown (side-note: way to go MTA. Tons of people on the light rail today and there wasn't a single person checking tickets. The state wonders why its budget is in trouble).

Frozen solid, sick, tired, and somehow still awake.

Okay, he's not a saint. He refused to smile for a picture.

I'm not usually one to share personal politics, but I think many people understand the significance of this week's events. I hope all of us can put aside our differences and just be proud of the boundaries that are being broken down, one day at a time. I'll have more pictures posted on my Flickr site, that way those of you who want to see them can and no one is forced to see them.
