My Cup Runneth Over

I believe I am allergic to life - my eyes get all red and watery at nearly the drop of a hat.

I've decided I am allergic to the following (but not limited to):
sweet parent/child commercials
loving commercials
happy movies
sad movies
Heck I am even allergic to someone getting hurt.

Seriously - I was watching the FSU game this weekend with the Husband and got choked up. SERIOUSLY?! during football?! I don't even care about Oklahoma OR FSU. For those of you who didn't see, an FSU receiver was knocked unconscious at the goal line during the first half of the game. I seriously got choked up watching the medical staff place him on a stretcher and take him out of the stadium. For those of you who care, he did come back to the stadium on his own, out of uniform to watch the rest of the game.

I can't figure out when I became allergic to so many things. I think it all started right after J proposed to me. Before, I was emotional when the time was appropriate but now I feel like it is ALL. THE. TIME. I was watching an old Friends episode a couple weeks ago and BURST into tears. LITERALLY. No I am not pregnant...that is usually the first thing I am asked at work by the women I work with.

I'm not really sure what has happened in the last two and a half years - but I am way more prone to crying than I ever have been. I cry when I am happy, mad, sad, frustrated, excited...it really is bordering on ridiculous! I don't know how to make it stop!! I mean, I have always been one to feel better after a good cry, but I feel like I am getting all teary eyed about nothing. Gosh - at least before, there was purpose to my emotions. Now I feel like I am on the crazy train and someone else is driving haha!

In other news - some things are being restructured at work which is why I haven't been able to comment on all your lovely little blogs. Between work changes and us prepping to move and all the DIY stuff we are getting into, it is seemingly never ending. We are excited to start packing up some of the stuff this weekend and getting a handful of projects finished.
You should see my list of DIY projects and list of things to buy. It is getting out of hand. I am slowly coming to the sad realization that I won't be able to do all of the things I want by the time we move in, but at least now I have some organization going on with all of it. I can't wait to share everything with you =)

Have you found that you are more emotional since you got engaged/married?
How do you deal with it?! =)

I'm in your boat, you're not alone!! My list is the exact same!! Did you remember me last Christmas?? hahaha

Kristen said...

That happens to me sometimes too, even over something you're like really?! I'm crying over that?! haha

Nicole said...

why yes, yes I do feel that way and nope, not pregnant that I know of either :) and i agree it's annoying and I don't really know how to deal with it so if you figure out let me know please :)

I'm the exact same way and didn't realize it until you posted this! I cried during that part of the game too.(I am a die hard FSU fan though, but when he gave the thumbs up when they drove off, I started bawling!) That new movie, Dolphin Tales about the injured dolphin, I cried my eyes out at the PREVIEW in the theatre! Why has marriage affected my emotions so much?! LOL

I am WAY more emotional than I used to be! I cried all the way through my friend's wedding and I even teared up twice at the reception! Craziness!

Dana said...

I am the same way as you. I've always been that way and it is truly embarrassing in some situations. For me I do it when I have an extreme emotion. I've even cried when I saw the animal humane society come through a parade before and everyone's like, Why are you crying?!

i'm more emotional every year!

I have some of the same allergies ;) I definitely DON'T have baby fever, but sometimes when I see those baby shows, I about bawl my eyes out. Weird much? It's probably because we are SO invested in prospering our own lives, our subconscious gets us emotional because they are all things we want for our lives (health, family, home, love, hugs) :)

And can I please tell how koo-koo I am? For SOME odd reason as I was driving to work today, I thought about what I would do if I lost my hubs (I know...Baker Act me, puhlease)..and I got all teary-eyed. I had to pull over and compose myself...I need therapy! LOL :)

Oh girl, no worries. I used to give my mom 20 kinds of hell for tearing up over the little things, and low & behold, I am now her times 20. :)

It happens to me too. I'm an emotional wreck! Anything sweet or sad, I'm tearing up!
