The historical day.

I am an "after the fact" kind of girl. If you want to know what I think about today, um, just give me some time. Words escape me somehow, unable to do a day like today justice. Maybe that is the way it is supposed to be. To just let the events of the day stand for themselves. My job for today is to take it all in and guide two young boys through the whole amazing event and foster the tiniest bit of understanding of the whole inaugural process as well as the significance of today.

I took the boys to see Hotel for Dogs yesterday. Colton has sufficiently rebounded and with the day stretching out before us we took off for the mall despite the slippery roads. If you are an animal and kid lover and can put up with a small share of potty humor, I would definitely go see this movie.

And if you are an animal lover in general perhaps this little video which I viewed here lillyslife will help get you in the mood for today!

In this latest installment of CBS News Assignment America, Steve Hartman visits an animal sanctuary where a dog and an elephant have formed a very lasting, and unusual, friendship.
