So today was my day. I started off innocently enough, with me waking up Girl-Child at 6:50 so she could babysit for the neighbors. Then I headed back to bed and begged that no one so much as even farts loud, because I was not ready for the day. Fast forward, oh, about 30 minutes, and I heard the Oh so Familiar wine of the dog wanting to be let out....then came the pitter-patter of little feet (the same pitter-patter that I used to think was so cute)...So I did what any good mother would do...

After that, they started bouncing the ball that they had just bought (see other post ) all around the house. I mean seriously, did the THINGS have a meeting and discussed how to aggravate me the most? Then it was Man-child, and Girl- child fighting, the dog barking, the THINGS bouncing that darn ball (which got busted by Buddy the Dog....Good Dog) and I HAD HAD IT!!!
Then I turn on the T.V and see what has happened in Aurora, Colorado, and I feel STUPID and Silly! Here I am getting mad at the kids for making a mess in the kitchen, when those parent's whose children were killed, would do anything to have them back and making messes in their own kitchen. I realized that it could have easily been my kids who were in that Theater. For goodness sake, Man-child, and Girl-child, wanted to go see the movie when it came out, here in North Carolina.
Things like this tragedy, in Colorado, should wake us up as a nation. I know that it sure did WAKE ME UP today.
My thought's and Prayers are with you people of Aurora Colorado,
