    A win for her B’day!!!!! Woohoo Hollie!!!!

    Doing a lot of remembering today and even thinking about what’s to come.

    Remembering that I was feeding B’girl while watching the news. She was only 6 days old. My oldest was at school and I was trying to figure out if I should find a way to get him home (I couldn’t drive yet). After a while, we turned on Nickelodeon and/or the Disney Channel to watch with my middle son. I just couldn’t watch it.

    My oldest will be joining the Air National Guard next week. He was going to be swearing in today, but a slight delay has put it off a week. I’m so proud of him for wanting to serve, but as a mom I’m still a wee bit nervous too.

      Boy, that had to be scary, Laura…having a newborn & not knowing what the heck was going on or what the future would bring. But look how everything turned out! :fangsmiley

      So proud of your son for joining the Air National Guard! It’s men/women like him who make this country so great! (Take that, you stupid terrorists!) :aces

    Congrats to the winner..

    I think everyone is remembering today, but we dont’ need all this media attetnion to remember. And being told we must remember. No one can forget this day.

    But I am remember all those who lot their lives and gave their lives to keep us all free from terror and war…
    I am remember all of those who’s father, husband, mother, wife, daughter, son, cousin, grandchild and friend who did not return home this day..
    God Bless Them..

      I’m avoiding all the media coverage & specials, too. It’s just too painful. I think we absolutely need to remember…but then again, who could forget?!…but wish they’d focus more on the rebuilding & monuments instead of showing original news feeds.

      I also wonder how the folks who lost loved ones or were there that day feel about the coverage. Because for me, I would not want a rehash of the worst day of my life. It’s hard enough just knowing what day/anniversary it is, never mind seeing reminders everywhere you turn.

    Thank You!!! Woohooo!!
    and Yes…thanks LJ..I turn 48 today!! 40 freakin’ 8!!! Didnt think I’d live this long…but Im glad that I did (wild child..thats me)

    I remember 10 years ago today too….My dh took the day off of work and was taking my son to school for me…and I was waiting on my mom to come over so I could fix her hair!
    Still a horrifying event. Those Terrorists can bend us…but they cant Break us!!
