Sticky notes, notepads and calendars cover my desk. I conducted back to back interviews for three days. Another month end close is looming. I need to work on next year's budget. I need to clean my house. I need to put away several loads of laundry. I do not need to spend anymore money. Target, Payless and Barnes & Noble ended up with most of it. I now have a Twilight calendar for my cubicle. I have two adorable pairs of heels. I may have also picked up some fashion jewelry and another handbag.

Many lives were lost on September 11, 2001. It's a day I'll never forget. I'd like to thank all of the police officers and firefighters who gave their lives to save people they didn't know.

"When a man becomes a fireman, his greatest act of bravery has been accomplished. What he does after that is all in the line of work." -- Chief Edward F. Croker
