Saturday Sharing

Good Morning Class,

Today is a bit different as, I thought we should share where we were or how we heard about the events of 9/11; this being the 20th Anniversary! Most of the bloggers I follow are doing blogs about it, but if you aren’t or just still want to Share, Please do so in the comments.

2001, and I had just gotten married to Idiot in May. I was a Switchboard Operator for the corporate office of Bally Total Fitness in California.

September 11th, I worked from 6 til 3. I hadn’t been at work long and was walking through the showroom when one of the televisions on the bicycle screen showed the first plane hit the Twin Towers. I remember a bunch of us watching in horror as the 2nd plane hit! I called my mom and woke her up, telling her to turn on her television set. Then, I called Idiot. Yes, I think I called my mother, first. Idiot worked for the Naval Base, as a civilian, and the news was saying they weren’t sure if the terrorists would go after the bases. Idiot told me the base was put on strict lockdown and it was a bitch getting on, even as an employee.

Every year, I watch the videos of the events with the people calling from the planes to the survivors stories. I continue to pray for the families of all affected.

That event led to my fear of staying in tall buildings for very long. An apartment penthouse has no appeal to me.

Not Doing Things Today

I didn’t do anything I meant to, today.. like paperwork. But I did talk to and decide to try a different Realtor. I swear, these Realtors all start out gung ho and happy, then they fade into oblivion when they can’t find anything. Luckily, per Nevada law, I can switch as much as I want as long as I don’t sign anything, officially.

Watched some 9/11 shows since the 20th Anniversary is tomorrow. I do this every year as a reminder of something I will really never forget.

My Puma would have been 17 years old, today.

I miss my beautiful, Bengal (“Bear Cub)

The other day, I accomplished this!

My Ex’s Graffiti Tag was on it. So, I covered it up. He actually painted it originally, which is okay.

Lastly, we got some Monsoon Rain which was nice. Probably didn’t help our drought much and definitely didn’t cool us off, but better than nothing.
