A Potpourri Post

Forewarning: this is a bit of random post...


So I'm not sure what my deal is but lately I've been tearing up at the silliest things. I don't really think it's postpartum depression because I don't feel depressed when I get teary. (If that makes any sense.) I've just noticed that I get teary more easily and just as quickly as I tear up it passes.





For example, while reading this book the other night to Aidan I got teary. Seriously, I teared up over this book. Although this may be a touching story with a good moral, I don't think most would be moved to tears after reading it. I must say though that boy is so selfish. Poor tree!


Here's another example, every time I listen to the song 'Goodbye My Lover' by James Blunt I get teary. I have this downloaded and have heard it a million times before so why do I still tear up? In fact, although handsome hubs is not a James Blunt fan I all but forced him to listen to, then download this song onto his ipod. Curtly informing him he needed to be more sensitive. LOL
OK, to my defense though I have heard that this song is played at funerals more then any other song at the moment. Who knew?



Completely switching gears, I did not get much in the way of projects done over the weekend. I did manage to get the black urns placed at my front door. I'm really pleased with the plant selection I used and how they've turned out. Tonight I hope to get a start on re-painting the front door. I'll try to get some pictures taken once I've got the door painted so you can take a look. I really think it's going to look sharp.


For good measure I'm throwing in this funny picture of Delaney. I was busy snapping pictures the other day, so tickled to have her hair adorned in some girly way being as none of her bows will work (due to lack of hair) when I took this one. So adorable until you look down to discover her sending the most unladylike gesture.





Nice. What can I say? That's my girl!


More later!

I'm with hqm, I have turned into the BIGGEST crybaby. I cry at commercials, songs, movies, you name it, I'll cry over it.

The picture is priceless! Clearly she's like, "This is what I think of your picture taking!"

I love that story. :) I cry at random things too... I don't consider myself any sort of sports fan, but when I hear a croud cheering on the radio or on t.v. for one person who just did something great, it totally makes me cry!? I don't know why? I guess I am imagining what it feels like to be that person everyone is cheering for? Who knows! :)
