Do you know where you were when the so many lives were changed forever?
I was running late for work as usual and had the Today show on and Katy and Matt showed the live footage of the buliding with the hole in it and smoke pouring out. We All thought it must have been a small plane out of control...then they got word of what it was and they were showing the live footage of the second jet liner going into the building and taht was the millisecond in time we knew it couldn't be an accident.
Such an utter feeling of disbelief and helplessness. I think all of us here made a phone call to see if our close of kin knew about this!After...I could not just stay at home alone. I thought it best to go into work. The drive in was surreal and I imagine everyone on the road wondered if the fellow drivers were aware of this horrific disaster.
What struck me was when I got into work it was as if nothing had happened. Everone was working away...No radios on in the front office. I thought I had to break the news, but they knew and I could not believe people were not running around in disbelief as I was! This was my first reality check that life goes on... Life continues to roll on along with time but we need to stop amd remember this date and the magnitude of the event. In my lifetime I'll never forget and I pray that nothing worse ever happens here on our soil to top it. It is sad that this does happen in many other parts of the world and I am damn lucky to live in the USA despite this event.

If I were at home I would be cleaning up my sewingroom for the next project which I will post when I get home. Last night I patched...yes you heard it right...we still patch working guy pants in 2012. When they are a favorite you do what you can do to save until the season is over and he has to start wearing his big boy pants. Oh dear...if he read this he would shoot me. That is long leg pants.
