Oh, the waterworks.

Anyone else crying at the drop of a hat these days?

Thursday night I cried at 2 separate commercials on TV. One was a Walmart ad where a mom returns from war, and one was a Google Chrome ad where the dad is emailing his daughter.

If anyone else is as hormonally on the edge as I am, avoid those 2 at all costs.

The other night the movie 'Stepbrothers' came on. I've seen it before, but this time there was a part where I cried. Yup. I cried at 'Stepbrothers'. Thankfully, I was alone.

I've cried at the commercial where the soldier mom comes home while one little girl is kissing her sister goodnight saying one if for mommy. Ugh, I'm tearing up just thinking about it!!! I think that may be the one you are referring to.

It's awful!! I feel like I am constantly crying!

And it isn't just that either. Last night I was watching Worlds Dumbest and this guy was trying to break the world record for breaking glass plates on his head. After about the 4th or 5th plate, his head started bleeding and I could no longer look! I've never had an issue with the sight of blood, it I absolutely could not watch it.

I cannot even begin to describe how emotional I am! My sister and her fiance broke up last night and I cried for an hour. I cried a couple weeks ago at the end of watching Hocus Pocus when Binks dies. I cried when my friend's baby was born. I burst out in tears at Walmart last week, that was probably the strangest. My husband just stood there staring at me, trying not to laugh but looking concerned at the same time.

Needless to say, I too, am an emotional wreck!

Yes. I will start to tear up just thinking about some scenes from TV shows. That's actually part of why I haven't been watching some shows! I have them on my DVR to watch still. I try not to cry because my husband kind of laughs because of how emotional I am lately. Although I'm also real moody and he always lets me know!

I cried yesterday reading DS's JK progress report. It was good but I could not help myself. Then a few weeks ago I cried when I was visiting DS at school for Halloween. It is a good thing we do not need a parent/teacher interview or I would have to send DH because I would cry through the whole thing.

Yes, you can add me to the emotional mess group. I cry at songs in the car all the time.

We found out this week that one of my 6 year old DS's friend at Karate passed away last weekend. They have been in Karate together for a year and were next to each other in belt rank. Anyway the little boy was only 6 and got meningitas (sp?). I've been an extra mess all week thinking and talking with him (DS1) about it even though we weren't really close to the family. Its been on my mind non-stop and makes me burst into tears at random times. My poor DH couldn't figure out why I was crying tonight while making muffins.

I have been tearing up more easily definitely... but more so I am just finding I have less patience than normal. We were getting ready to go to my daughter's soccer game, and she was busy cutting up napkins to make rain (I don't know where she gets all these crazy ideas from.... but anyways...) and I got so frustrated that she wouldn't just drop it and come get ready. I nearly lost it even though it really didn't matter if it took her two minutes to get ready... Anyone else frustrated or short on patience??

I can relate. I've been super emo lately too, and with the most ridiculous things!
