mamaness's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

last year

I kept going back and forth on whether I would do an entry today or not. Actually up until a few days ago I didn't think about it. I pushed the fact that september 11th was coming out of my head. Then I decided I would write something. Because you know the media will present all these stories of how September 11th effected (affected? I hate those two words) so many people, but theres no way they can touch on every single story. Diaryland gives us a way to share what changed in our lives, or how we were effected by the day and the terrorists.

Last year on Monday evening I freaked out about Jason flying to North Carolina the next morning. I tried not to say anything to him, but I just didn't want him to go. And I didn't know why. I went so far as to ask him to stay home with us. He thought I was nuts. So did I. Until later that day after you know everything. After he missed his time to grieve his grandfathers death with his family. I have to admit I am glad they didn't take off, he would have just been stranded somewhere and the fear I felt for a few days after that... well I needed him. It makes me so angry that people came here to America and destroyed lives and things that Americans worked hard to build up.

And it's so easy to forget and move on. I am so excited about the birth of this baby that I never even think about the fact that myself or my husband or one of my children could be gone in an instant. I spent yesterday planning Kieran's birthday party, keeping my TV off or tuned to cartoons. I didn't even watch much of my usual soap, which had a big 9/11 theme. Today the TV will again stay tuned to cartoons, because my children don't need to see the media replaying the coverage from last year. They didn't see it last year either, I got my info from chat. By the way, did anyone save that very long morning chat last year? I thought I had but I didn't. I'm not sure why I want to read it again. I am just so thankful that I have my jason & I have jeric & kieran & the tiny one & my family and friends and I can't imagine what so many families are going through today.

Anyway I guess that's all I have to say. You should read Robin Lee's diary today. And others, because everyone will have something to share.
