There will not be a Carnival this week BUT THERE WILL BE ONE NEXT WEEK

There will be no Carnival this week but there will be one on October 8th. I have two tests next Tuesday, a Greek and a Hebrew test so I will be very busy this weekend studying. I don't think I will have time to put up a poll so I will be very undemocratic and say, let's do a theme on fall. Anything related to fall.

Carnvial Tomorrow!

No Carnival this week

There will be no Carnival this week (I have a Greek quiz next Tuesday, eeep!) We will have one the following week. It will not be a theme. If I get a chance this week, I will put up the theme poll. So, if you have an idea, you still have time to submit it. I was thinking we should do a netiquette theme, what are the things that bloggers do that bug you.

And I will be very slow to respond to emails, so you have been warned :-) I'm still accepting applications for the blogroll and will process them when I get a chance (I did five of them before the start of class this morning :-)

I've included links to the 9-11 tributes when I noticed them on the blogs of those who submitted an entry. If you want your tribute included, email me but it might take me a while to include it:

Pamela remembers September 11, 2001 along with several frozen moments in time. She says The Dust Will Wait while you stop in and share them.

Kelly from Pass the Torch remembers the perfect fall stroll she took the morning of September 11th, and the utter confusion as the events unfolded.

Laurel Wreath remembers what she was doing September 11, 2001. She also has a tribute to a victim of 9-11 here.

Owlhaven writes about Legos and September 11th

Tracey says of her post "Finally- I remember the quiet. I had never noticed how much noise planes made flying overhead. Until there were none. Over time I started to hear the ocassional loud drone of airplane engines- deep abnormal sounding engines. I remember a moment of panic.Then my husband said-

'Yep, that's a blah blah something something fighter plane' (that's what I heard- though I know he said something much more technical than that)

A fighter plane. This is not an airshow. This is our new world. A world where Terrorists will try to kill you, just because you're an American. I prayed......" Tracey also has a tribute a a victim of 9-11 here.

Michele at Life Under the Sun remembers the day she saw pure evil. She also pays tribute to two 9-11 victims William Fallon and Mattew Blake Wallens. I've updated my post to include my daughter Sarah's remembrance.

Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer writes about making pancakes with her little boy that awful morning. She also prays tribute to a 9-11 victim, Oleh D. Wengerchuk.

Chilihead says of her post, "My disjointed, surreal memory of September 11, 2001. Things are still difficult for me to put into sequence, let alone complete thoughts."

Slackermommy remembers September 11 and the grace that followed this life changing tragedy.

Five years have passed and most days it is easy to forget the 9/11 tragedy and move on with our daily lives. In Dreaming What Ifs... Karmyn R reflects about that day and says, I REMEMBER

Laura says of her post, "From San Jose, California, New York, Washington and Pennsylvania were far removed from me. Later I would discover my personal 9/11 connections: a cousin who had just recently returned from maternity leave and worked in the North Tower, an acquaintance from my gym who was returning home from a trip to New York City, the son of a couple from the church we attended, the husband of a lady I supported through Sidelines while she was on bedrest for a complicated pregnancy. All were brutally murdered that day. Parents lost their children. Babies will never know their mothers and fathers."

Five years later, Moonshadow remembers how September 11th stopped her family in their tracks and changed their priorities.

Anna says of her post, "Horror at the magnitude of the attacks and at innocent Americans like myself being killed flooded my heart. Sadly, though, I felt little surprise. I had long suspected we would not forever be spared such attacks on our own soil." She also pays tribute to a 9-11 victim here.

Magi says of her post, "This post describes my thoughts as I experienced one of our country's most shocking moments along with my class of high school students." She also pays tribute to Dorothy deAraujo of Long Beach, CA who was returning from a visit to her son in Massachusetts.

While I was hundreds of miles away safe in my home, friends and family were right there in NYC.

Malissa remembers. She also remembers Florence Cohen, a victim of 9-11.

Cathy at Sunday Morning Coffee has put together a comprehensive timeline of terrorism up to and including September 11, 2001.

At A Hen's Pace says of her post, "I've posted my memories and a tribute to Todd Beamer, a college classmate of my brother's, who graduated from Wheaton College a few years after my husband and I did. There's a memorial there that we visit regularly with our children."

Do you know what year 9-11 took place? Did you know that one in three Americans don't remember? Do you remember what you were doing that day? Families like that of Ralph Francis Kershaw will never forget. For the past five years, She Remembers.

Forget the pundits. Honor the lost, and focus on what's ahead at Julie Carobini's site.

Swapwitch says that "We will never forget."

shares her 9-11 memories.

Jennifer posted a tribute to Frank Joseph Naples

Grafted Branch remembers the events following the attack.

says of her post, "My September 11 post is about remembering that awful day and trying to protect the children from the images and sounds."

Bonnie says of her post, "It is about a shoe in a pile of rubble and the names on the fire fighter's helmets and how those images affected me. As a firefighter's wife, I couldn't help but search the backs of the helmets and read the names. I also couldn't help but imagine other women, who actually had something to look for, doing the same."

9-11 Carnival

It looks like some of us would like a 9-11 Carnival, so we will have one. Since I've opened it up to everyone, I would appreciate it if you would let your readers know, in case they would like to participate.

How about a Carnival related to Sept. 11?

I know that many of us will be doing a tribute to the victims of the Sept. 11 attack but I was thinking about doing something more personal the night before. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Carnival related to our remembrances of Sept 11.

Keep posting themes for a poll in the previous post but let me know if you like this idea and if you will participate. This Carnival will be open to any women who wants to participate, not just those on the Blogging Chicks blogroll.

Theme Carnival?

Do you guys want a theme carnival in a couple weeks? If you do, give me some suggestions for themes.

I've been out of town

I was in Phoenix this week, so I'm behind on processing the requests to join the blogroll and answering questions. If you left a comment or emailed me, I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you, I will try to do so this weekend.

There isn't a theme this week but we will be having a Carnival, so make sure you send me your entry.

BTW, this was my hotel this week, it's called The Buttes, it was built on mountain. It was a really nice hotel except for the fact that the Internet wasn't free, so I couldn't get on whenever I wanted to. I purchased it for three days, Saturday and Sunday to post the Carnival and Wednesday to catch up on my email and to post to my blogs.
