Crying Like A Baby – Me, not them.

4 Jul

Every single Saturday and Sunday my brave husband takes all 3 kids for a walk and to Breakfast. He does it so that I can have some time to myself. I’m pretty sure he thinks that I go back to sleep in the peace and quiet.

But I don’t.

What do I do with my precious free time? I don’t go to the Gym or meet up with friends. I don’t organize my closet or drink coffee and read my new InStyle magazine.
I watch movies. I miss going to the movies even more than I miss sleeping in. The thing is, I end up watching sad movies. It’s not that I feel down or am a particularly depressed person. It’s just that there is something therapeutic about lying in bed alone watching a good tearjerker. I should also probably mention that it doesn’t take much to make me weep in a movie. Even though I have seen many backlots, film sets and know all the details about making a film. I still manage to get wrapped up in the story, hook line and sinker.

This lovely 4th of July morning I am at it again. The kids are out with Daddy and I am watching Country Strong with Gwyneth Paltrow. Even though I’ve seen her at The Park with her kids, I realize this is fiction, I even read the script for heaven’s sake. Yet, here I am bawling and sniffling right along with the characters.

Maybe the fact that I well up in most movies means I’m more sensitive than I may seem. Or maybe it means I just need a good cry every once in awhile.


Am I the only one that does this???
