Good morning dear Readers and Happy Valentines Day! I discovered something new about myself this morning....I am unable to walk fast on the Treadmill and cry at the same time! It's really hard! To curb boredom whilst exercising, my husband set up a DVD player and television above the treadmill. We have millions of DVD's and we pop one on as we are walking or running and the time just flies by....it's a great system....otherwise I would probably stop after about 10 mins because I just get over it.........
This morning I watched "The Lovely Bones!" well, at least 20 mins of it. Have you ever seen it? I won't give anything away but, it is so sad. I started crying when the little lead character realised that she was dead and I'm trying to walk and cry, walk and cry.....it was more like slide off the end and cry, slide off the end and cry.....I just couldn't stay on the machine and walk at pace! What's going on with that? It's not like it's the first time I have seen the movie either......I was blubbering! I was a mess....... Am I alone in this?
I cry at sad movies all the time and sometimes not even sad movies.....Do you? I am hopeless...I took No. 2 son to Beauty and the Beast when he was little and I sat there bawling my eyes out....I was crying like a baby, sobbing and I couldn't find enough tissues to cope with the flow.....Every time the movie screen became bright and people could see me, I would hid my face so they couldn't see the tears falling and the large pool of water that had formed in my lap. I was so embarrassed! I couldn't stop crying though......My nose was all stuffed up and red at the tip and I think I even felt a headache coming on.........I felt like an idiot and hopefully my son hadn't noticed.......Yeh Right!.....When we got home he said to his father, "Hey Dad, the movie was good and Mum cried really hard...It was really funny!" Little bugger! Thanks for the loyalty son!
I remember watching "The Seventh Sign" staring Demi Moore! Bloody hell, that is the worst movie for a cry baby to watch......It was fantastic but, at the end I completely broke down and sobbed for about three days.....So, so sad! I just couldn't believe that she had to die! I can still picture it and I'm feeling weepy thinking about it....Even my husband cried at the end of that movie but, sshhh, don't tell him that I told you that! Why do they make movies like this? Don't they know that there are people like me out there who are going to cry at the drop of a hat.......A kind gesture is usually enough to set me off.....a wedding or a beautifully worded letter to a loved one......Birth of a baby sets me off as well. A fleeting soft touch on the cheek of the heroine by the hero is so moving, oh and a funeral! Oh, don't let me watch a movie with a funeral in it.......even the comedies with funerals in them are disastrous for me! As soon as the Eulogy starts, I lose the plot.....I know it's not real, but I can't help myself, and I hate the fact that after a good movie cry I feel like I have the flu! My head all stuffed up and the intense sniffing is so gross.
I have a sister-in-law who cries at commercials. Her children are constantly ribbing her about it and even I think it's funny......Poor thing! I can empathise. Everyone has a go at me too.....I am of the opinion that the more someone else has a go, the bigger cry baby they really are.....They have a go at me to hid the fact that they too are just as big a cry baby as I am.......You know what, I can't stop, so I am going to become a proud cry baby....I won't hide my face anymore when something touches me so deeply that I start sobbing.....I am a sook and nothing I do can change that fact! Like it or lump it!
Hi, At 59 I am just finding my feet in the world...So exciting! I have learnt a lot over the years.....gone from being extremely hard up to living a very comfortable life and loving every single minute of it.......My boys are grown up and living good lives themselves and I am so proud of them.......I have the best husband in the world (most of the time anyway....hahaha) and I have 3 dogs who I just adore and they adore me...... I try to live by my motto ......"Be like the sun....let your warmth shine through always"
