I cried twice today

Not BOO HOO crying, but tearing up to the point that liquid actually fell out of my eyeball...

1. At the supreme deliciousness that were the cubes of watermelon I was eating for breakfast. Perfect texture and just the right amount of sweet. OH.SO.GOOD. How am I such a lucky bastard to be afforded the right to eat such wonderfulness whenever I want?

then about 5 hours later....

2. At Willie Nelson's, "Always on my Mind" playing on a ASPCA commercial. You know, the commercial that shows all of these puppies and kitties who are just so so sad. WHY oh WHY have these poor creatures been smited?

After I turned my head so CK2 would not see me crying, I realized...duh. Hormones much? I now have my defenses ready, Midol and a heating pad. So if I over dramatized on anyone's blog today...sorry, it was hormones and leftover angst at NOT being able to correctly cook grits so that I could make Blackberry Grits.

I read the box, did everything as I was directed (I thought) and I got grit soup. How can it be THAT hard? Women in the old south were making that shit right from hominy, and I can't mix dry grits with water in a pot???? fuck. I seem to be getting all worked up again, time to just call it.a.day.

You poor thing. That's why I signed up for PMS Buddy. It e-mails you (or your S.O.) in advance and warns that in 5 days you will be an irritable and mood-swinging she beast. I like being prepared.

I tried making the blackberry grits, too! Will post the picture. Mine turned out kind of soupy as well, plus they needed something more than just grits, blackberries, and a squirt of agave nectar.

Well, hormones, and the fact that your baby is leaving home soon! I was teary off and on for the summer before both of my kids left for college. I know he'll still be in town, but it will be different. And weird...that's what my husband and I kept saying - "this is so weird."

We're all allowed a day or two like that from time to time. If it makes you feel better, I tear up at all kinds of commercials - and it has nothing to do with what time of the month it is. =)

Have you tried the instant grits? Those seem to turn out pretty good and you can test out different consistencies...

I think crying about watermelon is too much, but worrying about dog crates is normal.

I cry at ANY of those SPCA commercials..they tear me up. Then I fret for a long time about how maybe we should rescue another animal, until Lee talks me back to sanity.

Sorry about the grits!

those commercials get me every damn time. and then i think we should be foster dog parents and then i realize if we ever started doing that i'd have a damn house full of dogs.
the watermelon sounds heavenly.

Ha ha--I am also in the camp of people that cry during ASPCA commercials regarding of my hormonal status. When the stupid Sarah McLaughlin one comes on, I yell and scream at E. to change the channel before I start bawling.

I, too, am currently riding the red wave o' tears. Sigh.

I hate those commercials. I haven't seen that particular one, but I see the one with Sarah MacLachlan's song all the time, and I have to change the channel really fast. Seriously, I gave them money, WHY won't they leave me ALONE?!

I cray at ASPCA no matter what time of month it is. They have some good marketing, don't they?! :)
