Last year, I asked the question Where the Heck am I supposed to be? And I still don't know.
But, as a follow up, I picked up the elderly dog, who passed away last month. My Dottie is gone too now, and all the snakes I had at that time.
All this 9/11 stuff-I've pretty much stayed off the news and TV today. I have unpopular opinions about some of it. Tragic, yes, definitely. And there were heroes, but someone just sitting in his or her office and being killed, isn't, in my unpopular opinion, a hero. It's being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The outrage that followed was all too convenient to push the war machine here. And yes, I was outraged too-sitting on the 52 floor staring at the sky all day and for many days to follow, I was pissed OFF. But honestly, I also rather welcomed the knowledge of how much closer danger really was. Americans, sitting in America, are pretty naive about the rest of the world, or at least we were. And you know me, I'd rather see the situation for what it is, and that goes for more than just my midlife crisis.
In other news, a fellow named Ike is headed for Houston. My thoughts and prayers are with all the people there, but yes, there are special ones for my family members. And of course, for the pets.
