Life of the party

I got home tonight at 9:40 p.m. feeling a little grumpy and a whole lotta tired. My kids were asleep -- I missed out on seeing them tonight. Darn it. I had no time to unwind -- I was the guest of honor at a pity party for one.

But then I reread today's story about the 3,500 Mississippi National Guardsmen who have been alerted that they may go back to Iraq. And then I thought about the men and women spread out across the globe who would like to just have the chance to kiss their sleeping kids on the forehead tonight.

So much for the pity party. Think will go in, go to sleep and count my blessings like sheep.
