And on the seventh day, her head exploded

I had just finished telling my MIL earlier in the week how I'm no longer a crier. She even commented on how she's noticed. Years ago I would have considered myself up for an Olympic medal if there was an event for emotional crying. But somehow through the years, it just stopped. Unless of course, I'm watching a movie and something sappy comes up or I'm watching a Hallmark commercial (do those even exist anymore?). Fiction makes me cry. I think I developed this as a self-preservation method because I don't care any less, but I usually don't have a need to turn on the water works. It usually just gets in my way and makes me think less clearly.

Till this weekend. I think it was a compilation of all the events, not being home, how tired I've been and just good old emotional overload and trying to be logical about work stuff. It didn't mix and it didn't compute. And my head exploded.

It looked like this, except cerebral matter instead of soda.

Oh, Mad, I think we were separated at birth. . . I quit crying a little while back, but I suspect given the holidays that soon my head will explode too.

Hoping that the cry did you good, sometimes a good head explosion makes all the difference.

It's your safety valve, Mad. I think I still have mine in tact!

That photo is so funny considering what it is supposed to represent!

Sometimes tears are a great release. If you did it, you probably needed it.

I tend to get weepy and emotional at films and when reading certain books as well. Hope the dust has settled and things are fine now! xoxox
