We watched alot of coverage of 9/11. It was necessary but painful. It brought everything back so vividly. For my kids this was brand new and it was awful to see their faces and know what this was doing to their psyche. They need to know. They need to understand but I watched a piece of their innocence gone forever. Terrorists did this. We started the day with a 3 hour special about it. I decided we needed to get out for a while and wash this off. So we met Joe's cousin and her new husband for lunch. That was awesome. They went to Hawaii for their honeymoon and it was so fun to see pix and talk about such an amazing part of our country. It made us so excited for our trip to Kona next month! They are a wonderful couple and the kids have a blast with them. I had a burrito bowl with pulled pork, salsa, lettuce and guacamole. Yum! We ran errands...bought a new camera for our trip, bought Josh some sneakers, I got some cute things for our trip at Gap Body then went to Staples to pick up Adams school supplies. We headed home and the boys did their homework. I was still bummed about the day so we ended up treating ourselves to barbaque by the river. Yum again! It was a gorgeous crisp evening. One that deserves a soft sweatshirt. I had pulled pork again :) Some cucumber and tomatoe vinegrette salad and chopped salad. Yum. We treated ourselves with splitting some extremely decatent desserts and headed home. There was a moving documentary on tv when we got home about the fireman of New York that day. It was so difficult to watch. I'm so glad we did but....Wow! So for once I'm thrilled its Monday and I"m ready to start a new week. I'm going to work on some new choreography for my class and get some cleaning done around here. Enjoy your Monday!
