Some effects of that infamous day are obvious. The country went to war against terrorism. The airports entered a new level of security. The word anthrax took up a new, urgent place in the American lexicon. On that day, mothers and fathers rushed home from work to be with their children. It was an instinctive reaction to a new threat.

Over a five-day period, I mind-dumped into my Dictaphone to and from work daily.''She explained that, like many hard-driving business folk, she listens to a lot of motivational tapes in her car, ones on coping with stress, getting organized, the supermom syndrome, and on and on.

"My husband Josh is such a baby," sighs Jackie, 28, the mother of two boys, ages 4 and 2, and a part-time X-ray technician in a large hospital. "If he objects so much to my working, why didn't he say so before?"Jackie says life with Josh had always been a guessing game. In six years of marriage, he rarely expressed an opinion. But now he's full of them. He used to adore her cooking and affectionately called her Julia Child. Now, he refers to her as the "hamburger-and-French-fries queen." The house, he says, looks like a disaster area -- though she rarely sees him lift a finger to help.
