9/11 Tribute

I don't know why, but blogger put my tribute post on 9/9, instead of today. Scroll down to read it.

So what were you doing on the morning of 9/11/2001? I was sitting on the couch, nursing 5 week old Dancer Girl.

Other family bloggers who wrote a 9/11 tribute that I know about are my mom, writing a tribute to Cynthia Wilson at Motherkitty, and my aunt, mom's sister, who wrote one to Catherina Nardella at Mrs. Greenthumb. My dad wrote about 9/11 on Sep 8, aka Tomas. I am sure there might be more, but that was all I know about at this point. Pretty heavy stuff. This is a wonderful project, a good way to get to know the people who perished more, and remember them

I was sitting on the couch, holding a sleeping 7-week old Drew. We stayed in front of the TV all day.

I was sitting in front of the TV drinking my coffee and watching the news with Jimmy when the alert came that a plane had crashed into the trade center and like everyone we watched in horror live on TV as the 2nd plane hit.

I was at work when a co-worker came in and said she'd just heard on the radio about the first crash. We all went into the conference room and watched the coverage for a huge chunk of the morning. We were on deadline at the magazine, so we eventually had to get back to work, but we'd work for awhile, then go check the latest coverage.

I was 8mos pregnant with my first child and doing laundry. Walked by the TV (it was on mute) 3xs wondering why the screen was still stuck on the NYC skyline. Then I noticed the smoke. Dropped the laundry basket and turned up the volume and called my husband at work. We were on the phone together when the 2nd plane hit, both watching live. They evacuated his building because he works in TV and in the shadow of the CN Tower, but he wasn't allowed to leave because he was deemed 'essential' for the national newsfeed.
I was really scared, and so happy when he got home that night.
