I work third shift so by 7 am I was tired and ready to go home watch tv and relax. At home 7:45am. Took the dog out then turned on lifetime as usual for 2yrs straight, after the second episode of Designing Women, I had to go to the bank for a withdrawal. I noticed on my way how clear and absolutley beautiful the day was. And i never notice that…. it was odd.

About half way to the bank I turned the radio on 9:05am and heard the news on 107.9 link radio. I was devastated. at the bank the employees where afraid as I was. The only thing I could think of was go home. At home I awoke my partner to the news, we then watched tv. He had a family member who worked in WTC. He called her mother in Charlotte, NC. She had already spoke with her and she was fine. I was awake the rest of the day and night, I could not mentally digest this. I remember being at work that night and being afraid. I stayed glued to the tv all night.
