So…today was actually beautiful. Very much a great fall day with nice cool winds blowing around. It helped take my mind off of the anniversary of everything that’s happened. Of course, that was hard, considering the massive media coverage of the day. I got tons done around the house and for work, had dinner with my dad, and coffee and pie with Dave at the Seville Diner. All in all, it was just nice to be alive and safe and comfortable…remembering that a year ago, I arrived at work after a horrible flight into DC and a few hours of sleep only to find out what was starting to happen.
What a year this has been. A year ago, I was alone and miserable in Washington, DC. I remember sitting in the Sheraton hotel lobby after I learned that my dad was safe and having a few glasses of bourbon while talking to other guests. I remember my friend Judy coming to grab some dinner with me, and it felt good to know someone in the city. And then a few months later…I would fall in love and my life would change completely. The city I wanted so badly to get away from became wonderful and familiar. And now, I’m gone from there, and back to New Jersey, center of the universe.
Well….this weekend, I’m going back to the District to hang with Jen. Monday, its all about Connecticut and a new project. Who knows what the future brings? At least I’m alive to find out. 🙂 That’s all for now.
