Ahem, :lol:. Yeah!

Remembering *new link added*

Tomorrow’s my sister’s birthday, so I’m doing this today. I remember that day that happened 5 years ago tomorrow. I remember everything I did, everything that was said, everything that happened. It’s a day I doubt I’ll ever forget.

It started out like any other day. I woke up, took a shower, and headed off to class. “In the End” by Linkin Park was playing on the radio. After it ended, the radio personality, the same one I used to listen to in Evansville (I actually worked with his wife at Walmart), came on and said a plane had hit the WTC. Since I was an ignorant college student at the time, I just turned off the radio, and continued on to class. I finished up my two classes, still not really sure of what happened. Since I had to get Josh at the dealership because his water pump was being fixed, I pushed my way through the groups of people watching the TV in the halls, just as the second plane hit the second tower. I got to where I needed to pick up Josh, and he all out saying “they say it’s terrorists, some dude named Bin Laden”. We head to where Josh used to work, his neighbor’s business, and we talk and listen to the reports on the radio. We stayed and talked for an hour or so, and then headed to his grandmother’s house. We weren’t there longer than an hour or so, when the towers began their collapsing. We lost all of the WTC buildings that day.

I remember worrying about Mohammad and Rashid, two guys we worked with in the Garden Center. They were Muslim, but not Afgahni (spelled that wrong, but oh well). Both of them are of Moroccan decent, and two amazing people. We were worried, after finding out that the attacks were led by Muslim extremists, that they would start getting attitudes given towards them. Amazingly, they never once got any kind of attitude. Most of the customers who came through the garden center were regulars, and actually listened to them when they said that they were disgusted by what those men did.

I remember all of us comforting Charlene, because her fiance was in lockdown at the base. She was so scared that he was going to get shipped out, even though he couldn’t due to a recent back injury during training. Charlene also had family in New York, as did Amilcar, our future roommate. So many people lost family that day, but no one I knew. Not on the planes, not in the towers, not in the rescuers. The heros that day are the ones who survived to tell about it. The ones that carried on without the ones that they lost that day. The ones that are growing up today without their fathers, their mothers, their cousins, their friends.

Do not let the media force you to forget that day. Do not let those deaths be in vain.

A Few Days gone by

Gah. This week has been good personally, for me and Josh, if you discount the fight 🙂 I’m actually happy most of the time. I’m not going “manic” at the moment, and haven’t had an episode since. I think a lot of it was the fact that I know, now, that things all around are going to work out, and I’m refusing to dwell on them.

In case you didn’t notice, I got rid of the blog renter. I got sick and tired of BE refusing to fix their craptastic server slowness, and I’m tired of how slow it was making my blog go. Goodbye, BE, and kiss my ass. Maybe I’ll come back if they ever fix their shit, but I doubt they ever will, considering they claim they’ve done it already O.o

Madi, on Thursday, had her WIC appointment. She is now definitely considered underweight. She’s just 2 pounds over Ethan. So, they’ve got her on a high calorie diet. Of course, that’s freaking expensive, since we have to add dry milk to almost everything to increase her caloric intake. Yeah, GV brand is cheaper, but with things like that, I don’t trust Walmart’s brand, so we’re getting the Carnation brand by Nestle. I definitely trust that a hell of a lot more. But, for the smallest package, it’s almost $7 O.o, and it just gets worse as you go up on it.

Other than that, nothing big. Yes, I know. Big boring sad life, :lol:. BUT!! A week from today is mine and Josh’s 5th anniversary. Mark and Julie are taking the brats so that Josh and I can go see a movie. No clue what we’re going to see, but thankfully, Josh works 8-5 that day 🙂 That week he also only has one day off (Wednesday). Poor thing 🙁 Monday is my sister’s 17th birthday. Lucky little snot is getting a CD player for her car O.o Lucky duck, 😆

Okay, real post

Finally updated Sigs ‘n More. Three animal sigs, three people/doll sigs, 2 misc ones. And, new layout. I went with the Midnight Faery layout 🙂 Looks really good, IMO. Speaking of looks: TM2TS will be getting a new look in about a month. I’ll be incorporating Halloween and Breast Cancer Awareness Month into one. That means lots of pink, so be warned, :lol:. I’m working on the theme now. Well, hashing out ideas. I got 3 new templates from Marina, so I’ve got plenty of temps to work with. If you’ve got ideas, toss ’em to me, please 🙂

Here’s what I did yesterday:

*does a little dance* THERE’S FOOD IN MY HOME!! *dances some more*

*snort* Okay, I’m all better. It just feel so good to have edibles in the apartment, and know that the kids can finally eat. 🙂 We got E NINE Gerber graduate meals. 🙂 Along with some “puffs” of strawberry and pineapple. They got bananas and apples, and I got fruit juices, like orange-strawberry-banana, and even some V8 Strawberry-Banana juice stuff. Full serving of veggies and fruits in each 8 oz serving. I like that 🙂 We did good. Spent $200 in groceries, but worth it, and so needed 🙂

Oh, and Josh and I’s 5th anniversary is in 11 days, his parents 26th anniversary is in 8 days, and my sister’s birthday is in 6 days. Oh yeah, and Jesse’s birthday is exactly 3 weeks from today. O.o Oh boy. But, speaking of anniversaries, we almost didn’t make it. Josh and I had a big blow-out. Bigger than normal. Hormones due to PMS, stress-induced mania (bi-polar), mania-induced panic attack, and one wrong comment from Josh just made me lose it completely and totally. The fight was 90% my fault. I regret so much of what I said, but I did, through that, learn Mark and Julie are amazing friends. The fight happened on Sunday night. Julie helped me out, and Mark helped out Josh. We saw Mark on Monday, when we went grocery shopping. Guy looked exhausted. Wanna hear why? He woke up at 2:30 am worrying about us. AWW!! I almost hugged him, but he was on the clock, and I didn’t want to chance getting him in trouble. If he comes over tonight (should, since Jule’s is closing), I plan on squeezing him, then admonishing him for walking around shirtless. Nobody but Jules wants to see Mark’s naked belly, *snort*.
