Post Trauma

I have had a little post trauma symptoms today and didn't realize that's what I was having until just now. I think Samuel had some, too yesterday. We were in the car yesterday and the sky was so incrediblu blue and he noticed that a jumbo jet was flying very low over the city skyline. "isn't that plane really low?" He asked a little leery sounding. I looked. It was. "It's headed in the direction of the airport," I said. I did think it was low and wondered.

Today I noticed three planes flying very low over the city. I was on High Street just north of campus. The first jumbo jet was incredibly low and the sky was a brilliant blue. Then the plan leaned hard to the right then hard to left, so that I knew people in the plane had to be freaking out, it sort of tottered after the two hard leans. Whatthe? Why would it do that I wondered. I put on my radio and scanned for local news. All I got was static. Then a few minutes later another Fed Ex plane was flying so low with the landing gear down. Rickenbacher airport is in the other direction I thought.

Now sitting here I realized it's September and the sky is so blue. Samuel and I are just imagining these planes are so low as we were having post trauma symptoms from 9/11.

That really sucks.

The air is cool and the A/C is off. Princesses pretty golden coat has come in after she lost all her summer hair. She looked like a scruffy polar bear for several weeks, but now she looks like a happy Corgi again. The cool air makes her run around the house and look zippy and young.

Samuel is back to catching a bus at a ridiculous early hour.

Becca's back to classes at UNF.

Rachael is, as I type, on the road in the rented moving truck with Kevin, and the car in tow behind them. The long journey from Florida to New Jersey has begun! Mother's prayers going out to God for angels on the road and I'm asking for several angels, not just the two that belong to Kevin and Rachael! Thanks, God!

The other changes I'm facing is the rapidly changing rules and regulations in Real Estate! I need scramble. If I had real estate blog I wouldn't sell any real esatate because I'd be writing non stop about all these crazy changes and practices!
