The Way We Were Wednesday : Chicago 2008
Ah, 2008, it was a busy year. This was taken in August in Chicago at a national conference on abuse of adults (we are opposed to it.) In early September we took a cruise to Alaska, my first cruise. Later that fall I did a speaking tour in Kentucky, and in the middle of that got a call for a job interview in Washington DC. The interview was on Halloween, we voted for President a few days later, the job offer came a couple of week later. At Thanksgiving we drove to DC and leased an apartment, then from there to Florida, took a cruise to the Bahamas, spent the holiday with my family. In early December I flew to DC for a conference, and the middle of the month I started the new job in DC. And that was just the last 6 months of the year. The Obamas moved into a hotel a block from my office window a week after I started the job, it was an exciting time to be in DC.
