in about 3 hours............

I am going to be screaming my head off out in the front row at MCR (my chemical romance) AND I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!

i even went out and had to buy a new top, handbag, necklace and earings to mark the occasion. Anthony is so going to laugh at me, lol.
We are taking Lauren with us, so i'll have someone to scream with and dance like an idiot, cause Ant wont - he keeps it all on the inside.
Trac, god bless her, is having my 2 kids for the night. I think that is a fair trade, lol. Thanks Trac, i owe you one.

I promise i'll be back to normal blogging shortly, im just needing this break right now to get my head around things.

The Little Things

This was an email that my mum sent to me last week, and under the circumstances at the moment i can relate!

As you might know, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.
One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.
One's car wouldn't start.
One went back to answer the telephone .
One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.
One couldn't get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone . All the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where I am supposed to be at this very moment.
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong - the children are slow getting dressed, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated;
Someone is at work watching over you.
May you continue to be blessed with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.
