Why am I crying?

It has been a few weeks since I added my two cents. I guess you could say that I have been busy lately. The thing that is keeping me most occupied is feeling sick right along with Rindi and Joni. Yep, I am expecting, only a week after Rindi. I don’t even get close to Rindi’s level of sickness, but I have spent the majority of the last few months feeling sick. I am 14 weeks and Due November 22!

I have to blame my teary attitude on the pregnancy, but oh my heck why am I crying so much? Just a few examples of my blubbering, yesterday was the last day of school and each girl cried in my arms because they were so sad to leave their teacher. They told me that they felt so sad and would miss their teacher so much. Before you know it I was crying too, turns out I am going to miss their teachers too!!! I felt so sad for them and I could not keep it in. Then Saying good bye to Oprah was not an easy task. I have loved watching her over the years. Oh and my dog ran away the other day and I guess that was too much to take because after I found her I cried my eyes out.

Last night Clint and I were watching TV and we came upon a show called seven pounds. I knew it was a sad show, but we had nothing better to do so we watched it. At the end I felt very sad and I could feel myself losing it. Finally, I just let it all out. I am pretty sure Clint thought I was going crazy as I put my head in my hands and just cried...loud. Maybe I am going crazy.

I know some people avoid sad things, Joni and my brother J.B. do anything they can to stay away from saddness. I on the other hand think it is good every once in a while to let out a good cry. I was trying to explain this to Clint last night. Clint never cries. He cried at our wedding and once in a while he will get chocked up bearing his testimony, but for the most part he does not cry. I think he is missing out. It feels good to get a good cry out. It releases so many emotions.

I am sure Clint is hoping that my emotions go back to normal because watching TV almost always brings a tear for one reason or another. It is weird to feel so out of control of my tears, but until I regain my control I am going to let it all out.

Stalee, I am with you. A good cry helps me feel better. The only problem with a good cry is that I usually have a headache afterwards.

I am so excited for your new little one. I know you don't feel good and you are struggling. Hang in there. I love you, Mom

I didn't know your dog ran away! And every time I call and say, "Have you been crying?" and you say, "No, it's just my allergies," I'm no longer going to believe you! I think crying feels good too, but I get such a stuffy nose and puffy face that it usually makes me sick (at least right now anyway!). Hang in there! Just hanging out with you has helped me soooo much. I love you!
Love, Rindi

Stalee!!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am for you!!! Seriously, so happy! And, what's even better is that our babies will be so close in age!!!!!
Lucky for me, I have never had emotions and thus pregnancy hasn't added much as far as emotionscare concerned either. I hope you get feeling better. I have found the 2nd trimester was fabulous so hopefully you will get a break here.
Congrats Stalee and Clint! I couldn't be happier for the two of you! Can't wait to see you in July!!

Okay I know! Like Rindi said, you always say it's your allergies and now I just won't believe you....Having a good cry is good for the soul. Clint could use a little cleansing! LOL I hope you start feeling better soon and we are all so excited for this new baby. You are amazing my sweet daughter-in-law. I love you!
