Its been a quiet day. We've been watching 9/11 specials that have been on different channels all day. I still have that lump in my throat, the tears and the same anxiety that I felt 10 years ago.
We went to Soph's baby shower yesterday, it was awkward to say the least. Dave refused to talk to her Mom. Not many people came. Her old caseworker from cys was there, the douchebag Aunt that threw her out was there, her other brother and sister came, the baby's daddy's Mom came, who, was really nice, she sat with us, and Soph's mom had the balls to sit at the same table with us, only a few chairs down. Soph's grandpa came with her Mom, her foster Mom came, and a few co-workers and friends. She got alot of clothes and diapers, Dave and I got her the crib and matress for her.
We went back to the house where she is staying and Dave put the crib. We took Soph out to dinner, she doesn't live very far from where the plane went down in Shanksville on 9/11 and they had police and the fire department sitting on all the exits leading onto 219, (we heard VP Biden was in the area) and we saw signs for the memorial on 219 too, Dave wanted to go but it was late and there was probably alot of people there, we made plans to go see it when Soph has her baby, we aren't taking the kids so it will be easier and quieter. We got home around 1230am, I was up till 230 watching 9/11 stuff.
