Getting Soggy

The crying has got to stop.
Not Cheeta. He's very stingy with his crying - only when denied food for a while or when sitting in a wet diaper does he cry.
No, MY crying.
Jeepers, hormones are one thing but this is ridiculous.
I've seen Steel Magnolias dozens of times. I don't even like it that much. (Sally Field is great as is Shirley MacLaine but the storyline bugs me. Always has.) Never shed a tear previously. Now it's all over my lap.
White Christmas? Classic holiday movie, lots of songs and dances, it's a funny flick I've seen at least once a year my entire life. Never even thought about crying. Now I'm tearing up every other scene.
And that horrible Christmas song on the radio about the shoes? Makes me mad every time they play it. *So* many problems with that song.
Also makes me weep this year.
While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night had me crying in church last Sunday.
I can't even say why.
I understand why Cheeta smiling does it to me, or thinking of him getting older and not being able to protect or provide everything for him. Sure. Makes total hormone sense, but random songs and movies I don't even like?

This is me and say it stops eventually.

It...might stop? I've mostly stopped the "I just love her so much!" crying, but I'm still a hair-trigger for crying. Especially stuff with kids. Sick babies on FB and the like. I once cried at the NFL pregame show. I think this is as good as it gets for me. :-/

I can't even imagine you being soggy! That's just not Jane! But it is now, dagnabit. No joke, I can't control it (and I was weepy to begin with so it's just scary) and that shoes song is not only horrible, it's manipulative, and I hate being manipulated. I start hysterical angry crying because it makes me soooo mad. I'm so sorry, girl. It's just life now.
