Beautiful Day

I really want to thank you all for your support. It has been hard but not hard hard as I thought. The loss of sleep has been my biggest issue.
Of course I don't have enough on my plate and frantically scoured my house and let Realtors come in to see in last night and this morning.
I need to have my head examined.

I really can't believe that it has been seven years since 9/11. The thing that strikes me is that every year the weather seems to be the same here, beautiful bright blue skies and perfect temperature just like that day seven years ago.
Funny every time I pass the skyline of NYC on my travels I still out of habit look to see the World Trade Center.
You can read my experience that day here.


  1. Going through a lot of change always stresses me out. I wish I had something quick and funny to say, but today is somber.

  2. Good luck with the realtors...nothing worse than selling a house. Just think, it will be over soon and you can get on with your life. Read your 9/11 post...can't imagine. Was horrible from a distance but up close? No idea how anyone stayed sane that day.

    Just read your last few posts. MY goodness you're having to handle alot all at once. Hang in there... it'll all be worth it in the end, or God doesn't give a person more than she can handle, or This too shall pass...

    Seriously, though. Someone once told me when I was having a pity party (issues not NEARLY as emotional as you're having to deal with) to try and remember that while it might seem too much to take right now, today is a perfect example of "too much to take" for others.

    It really does all get better. Eventually!

    For the record, I think you're doing an amzing job... for what that's worth

  4. Hang in there Tuesday Girl, you're awesome.

    Re your 9/11 post: My first child was in utero at the time. I've gone on to have 2 more kids, and every 9/11 anniversary, it gobsmacks me that I didn't have kids yet that day. How would I have handled it? I just don't know. So my son is in 1st grade now, and I tend to think of his class as very special. Those are the kids born just before, or for a year after 9/11 (our state cut-off is 9/1). There are two other first graders at the same bus stop as my son...they both have older siblings in high school. That's a significant gap, and I really want to ask the other moms if they are here because of 9/11.
