Former First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about their last night as a family in the White House. To move out of a home is hard enough and for Michelle Obama moving out of the White House is just so complicated.
The night prior to the induction of President Trump, the Obama family started packing. The first daughters also asked for a final sleepover and invited their friends. On the day of the inauguration, Michelle practically sends her daughter’s friends home as there’s a lot of preparation to do. It absolutely was a goodbye to the home that they had known from the time they relocated. The Obama girls were still in elementary school then.
“The move took place so fast; it is as if you cannot move a piece of furniture not until the new leader takes the oath,” Obama recalled.
While it must be hard for the Obama’s then, they must have received a lot of extra help from many volunteers. Much like the move of Australia’s prime minister from the Kirribilli House, assisted by trusted movers like the Gold Coast Removals in Australia.
Obama recalled a lot of tears on their final day. Juggling three things at the same time, it was just a challenge to say goodbye as everyone becomes so emotional. But she has to compose herself on that day. Being the first lady for many years, it’s important to keep her composure, to be able to welcome the new family and have tea with the Trump family. When the Obamas left the White House, Michelle said she was like letting go 8-long years of exhaustion.
While she loves supporting her husband, Barack Obama, the challenges are too high. But she willingly embraces her role as the first lady. Being the President of the United States is a demanding job after all and she knew that her support is of utmost importance. While the move from the White House is filled with emotions, it was also filled with happy thoughts, of embracing the average life they were used to before Barack became the president. She must have missed those good old days.
