My Eyes Are A Broken Faucet

Yes, I know it's the hormones, but I can not for the life of me get myself to stop crying once I get started. I've had this problem before being pregnant, but now once the waterworks start flowing it takes a good hour AT LEAST to stop.

For example, Tobie thought it would be funny to point the kitchen faucet at me and let Hannah turn on the water. I was drenched! I felt the tears coming on, but it was kind of funny at the same time. Theo came running to see what I was yelling about and after looking at his wet dog of a wife he busted out laughing. That was all I need to let the dam break and the tears started to flow. Of course I was laughing at the same time, but I just couldn't turn off the tears.

Another example was when I went to Winn-Dixie the other day. I really like this Winn-Dixie and it's music choice. They are always playing great 80's music like The Cure, and that group that sings "Under The Milky Way". (My best friend from High School would be ashamed of me if she knew I forgot who sang that song.)

Any who....when I happened to walk in that day they were playing "This Must Be Love" by Madness. If you haven't ever heard this song you should Google it.'s an awesome song.

But to explain what makes this song even more special to me we have to take a little time traveling trip to when Theo and I were dating. We were discussing music and what songs best describe our feelings for one another. (I know, such a lovey-dovey dating thing to do.) I can't even remember the song I choose because Theo's choice blew it out of the water when he played this song for me. I still love it after 11 years, and I consider it to be "OUR" song.

So back to the present, a few days ago, and I'm in Winn-Dixie. I text Theo to tell him that they are playing our song. He texts me back saying that he asked them to play it for me. AAAWWWWWW!!!!

On any other day I would have chuckled and thought, "He's so funny.". But something overwhelmed me with that one little text message. All the love I feel for that man welled up in my eyes and right there in the middle of the store I was bawling like a little baby! Thankfully my two younger kids who were with me were preoccupied with the amazing Lady Bug cakes at the Bakery and they didn't notice my blubbering of "Ohhh"'s and "Ahhh"'s at their excitement.

I had to walk the aisles a few times before composing myself and heading to the cashier to check out. Man, I really hope these hormones level out really soon!

You are so cute! Honestly, I hate the hormones that come with pregnancy and the crap they bring with them. I tend to be a crier anyway, and when you add the Preggo Cocktail, well...let's just say the faucet doesn't just leak, it pours! Hang in there and just try to use it to your advantage...just think, maybe if you had been sobbing big alligator tears they would have let you go first in the check-out line instead of waiting your turn. BaHaahaa (my evil laugh), you could manipulate so many people to do your will!!! Try it! You might as well get something good out of it! ;)

I hate those laughing tears too. Hang in there, you're 1/2 way there. I bet you are so cute pregnant, I always thought that with Hannah. We miss you!

I am so behind on blogging. I LOVE your family picture. It is GORGEOUS! And I can sure relate to hormones. Darn things. I wish they would grow up and move away from me! Good luck with the leaky faucet. I have those moments all too often. Hugs to you my friend, Kara. I miss you!
