Saturday, September 11

Nobody told me there'd be days like these

I had to wake up at 6 a.m. to head off to work Wellesley's A Day to Make a Difference. I have to tell you honestly, I wasn't so much into the difference-making at the crack of dawn. Nonetheless, I helped usher all our volunteers out into the world and then promptly returned home to take a nap. I set my alarm for 2 p.m., which just may be the strangest wake-up time of my young life. I would have just slept indefinitely, but I was supposed to get up to take my friend to Best Buy to purchase a TV set. Once I dragged myself out of bed (for the second time today), she called and canceled. Was I tempted to return immediately to bed? Hell, yes. But I had lunch instead and surfed the internet. At which point I remembered that today is Sept. 11. And now I'm glad that my sister woke me up with a phone call from the grocery store. And I'm glad that I hugged Leigh this morning. And I'm glad that I remembered all these things and more.
