Later this week my son and I will be going to Maryland where we will visit with his father's side of the family and then....it's off to DC to see the inauguration, baby! Very excited about that. Yes, I know it's going to be crazy and while I do have tickets to a few events (mostly parties) I doubt I'll be able to see the big O. But I'm staying with some family members who live right on Capital Hill so I won't have to walk too far to the parade. And did I mention I'm on the list for several parties ; D
So I'm all set...except for one thing. I've been told by various sources that the weather in DC is considerably different than it is here in LA. I don't really know how to handle freezing weather. It scares me. Today in LA it was a lovely 81 degrees. I wore my favorite sun dress along with a cute pair of heeled Mary Janes . In a week I'll be bundled up in my only wool coat wishing I had sprung for the long underwear. I'm trying to be brave but when my son's aunt tells me that she can drive around for hours with ice cream in her trunk without it melting...well I get a little panicky. And when I think about going from one black-tie event to another wearing nothing under my wool coat but a slinky evening gown...well then I just totally freak out.
Of course I'll grin and bare it...for the big O (and for the red carpet). But don't be surprised if my next blog post is titled something like "Girlfriend's Guide To Battling Frostbite."
