to burst into tears - start crying suddenly
to see red - to be angry
to be all ears - to start listening to someone
to be headed for trouble - it's likely that sooner or later you'll be in trouble
to take a break - take a breather, stop doing something because of tiredness
to sleep on something - to sleep with an idea,suggestion, something you'll have to decide upon, to take time to make a decision
to lay the table - to put on dinnerware
first thing in the morning - something is due first thing, say on monday means you're gonna deal with it before anything else, that's your priority
to put on an act (as in a play) - to perform, to show audience a play

For all I know, this should be correct
