Where were You?

Where were you 8 years ago?

I was a brand new mother with an 8 week old baby. I was babysitting my nephew who was 18 months old. I turned on the news to see what the weather was going to be like before I dressed (you never can tell in September)and that's when I saw it. All the terror and confusion. News casters seemed panicked. I watched as the buildings filled with smoke and fire. I watched as the second plane hit. I cried as they speculated how many people were in the buildings. I watched as the smoke and people began pouring out. I watched some fall to their deaths. I watched others emerge from the buildings crying. I watched the buildings fall one by one. I cried. I breast fed and cried. The babies were so quiet that day. They let me watch TV all day long. I don't think I heard a peep out of either of them. All I could do was cry. Then I cried for the passengers of the plane and the workers in the Pentagon.

Then everyday heroes emerged and I was so proud to be American.

This is where I clipped these photos from:

Monday, September 7, 2009

well hello there. I know my posts have been very lack-lustre lately. I've been thinking about a few really funny posts... then my hubby said, NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT. I know you are thinking since when did you listen to him anyway!? But since it directly relates to him, I won't post it. Although, it was some really funny stuff, personal stuff, that I won't reveal. Maybe later. When it itsn't so fresh in his memory. Or maybe when he's not so sore, and I'm not afraid he'll want to wring my neck for a little good natured teasing... just sayin' I'm not gonna tell. You can't make me.

On a less funny note. I have good news, Dave's buying a new camera today. We haven't had a camera for a couple months now. So I can get back to taking my breathtaking photos for you all to enjoy. Who doesn't love a good lizard on the head picture?

We haven't burned up. I'm waiting till judgement day for that.
