Okay, first of all ... no need for apologies for complaining about petty stuff on MY account. As UUMomma said to me, we're not in a competition. Yeah, it's nice to think that Big Things Like This put everything into perspective, but they don't always. Even if you're sitting in the ICU with someone you love, it still hurts when you flip Entertainment Weekly the wrong way and get a paper cut. Yowch.
I mean, I'm right in the big muddy of it, and what is stressing me out? The fact that I have to find 100% free speakers for our church (preachers and talkers, not stereo equipment) and the fact that my house is a mess and the fact that I really need to do laundry and the fact that I had a filling fall out of my mouth last night, so I somehow have to figure out how to go to the dentist, and sooner rather than later.
So me? Perspective? Right at the moment, not really.
And that's okay. Because life goes on. Obladi oblada.
