Tyler said he would stay home, work, and take care of the dog; but he thinks that I should go.
Initially, I was unsure....unsure if I would be able to see/hear anything, unsure if I would be comfortable sharing my space on the Mall with 5 million of my closest (literally) friends, unsure if I wanted to spend 3 days with my slightly crazy father-in-law. However, I realized that:
- The historic nature of the event trumps all.
- I'll be able to see and hear so much, regardless of whether or not I see the actual swearing in or parade.
- Traveling with my crazy father-in-law might cause me to do things I ordinarily would be too scared to do. Tyler usually succumbs to my bowing out of things, due to fear. Tyler's dad will: embarrass me fully, make me anxious constantly, but probably help me experience things more fully in doing so.
Now that I've decided I want to go, I hope it actually happens. More updates as I get concrete information.
