I think I need a good laugh...

Friday, July 11, 2008

You know, one of those laughs that make tears run down your face, you almost pee your pants and your sides hurt and you are gasping for air and you still cannot stop? Yeah, that kind....

Hey everyone...

Well for three weeks I had PMS symtpoms and FINALLY started TOM this week, sometime during Monday night/Tuesday morning. Anyway, it has been horrible.... I am cramping, it is heavy, etc... and more than that, my mood is sucky.

I am sure the funeral I attended yesterday of the boy I spoke about in the last blog did not help matters and I have been stressed out lately anyway.

I just want to sleep... and have everybody leave me alone! I also WANT a HUGE bag of chocolate just for me, but I do not have it and am not going to the store for it, so I guess that is a good thing...

You know what sounds REALLY good, curling up on the couch with a good girl movie that will make you cry and laugh both and all kinds of not good for you snacks, popcorn, chocolate, ice-cream, chips & dip, etc... Oh yeah, with John and all the kids gone or in bed one.

Anyway, that's how it is today...

Anybody got a good suggestion of a movie that fits the description above??? Maybe Steel Magnoilia's??? I haven't seen it in years and I remember laughing and crying during that movie, so maybe...

    Hey everybody thanks for supporting me here. I now have a long list of good movies, some I had forgotten about, like Hope floats, I remember that was an AWESOME movie and definitely a tear jerker!

    I felt better just venting, but since TOM has ended, I feel better....

    I just love you wonderful women who support me, thanks sooo much!

    I don't have a movie suggestion for you, but Steel Magnolias was on t.v. the other day. I'm not really into the girlie movies - I like the action pack or comedy. I surely hope you're feeling better soon.

    When I'm in this kind of mood, I always opt for Beaches. It's a classic in my world.

    Ugh!!! So sorry! I don't miss THOSE days! Man...I wish we could watch a chick flick guys are all going to a father/son campout tonite and it's just us girls! I can't think of any right now except the Love Comes Softly series or Sarah Plain and Tall series. Maybe you can find something good on Lifetime. I'm reading a really good Christian novel by Rene Gutteridge called Splitting Storm....I might just curl up with that! I'm looking forward to watermelon as my treat tonight...can't wait. I know how ya feel though...that chocolate just CALLS to you..mmHMM! OH! GREEN CARD is a good movie...have you ever seen it? Do you ever watch's Christian comedy. Tim Hawkins makes me wanna pee my pants....snort...heave...yeah it's kinda gross...maybe you DON'T really want to watch him!LOL!!!

    Ok, Shannon - here's a little secret: You CAN have that chocolate... just not the whole bag! I know, I know - but I guarentee if you wait until late in your day, maybe even after dinner, and have one good piece (DON'T LAUGH AT THAT!), if you REALLY savor it and decide ahead of time that that's what you're going to do - woman, there's nothing better. You can do it, Shannon. Just really eat it slow and enjoy every little whiff of it. You can do it! Get your piece, put the rest away (or give to your hubby to hide - works for me!).

    Let me know how it goes! Meanwhile, a good laugh.... hmmm... here goes: (I love the things kids say!)

    Sweetheart, it's too late to do this today - but tomorrow, if you're still feeling this way do this, prettyplease,

    Grab $6.00 [that's what it is here] from any source you can grab it and GO to the matinee of Sex and the City.

    You will laugh and you will cry - and I suggest going by yourself so you can nurture [without justification] ANY and all feelings that the movie evokes.

    It is truly a movie about relationships, caring and support, love and above all: forgiveness.

    Do this for yourself: you deserve it!



    OH - and forget the bag of chocolates - just sneak your water in your bag - that's exactly what i did and ooooooh yes.. it was just what I needed - and you know it's been a rough go here for me - so you understand what i'm saying here.

    YUCK!!! Sounds like an AWFUL period. I just hate those. Hate them!!!

    Not sure on a good chick flick to recommend. I did recently rent 29 Dresses or whatever it's called and liked it. And I listened to "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" on audiobook and just sobbed. I think there's a movie, too, of that one.

    But if you need a laugh, check out this youtube video. It makes me LOL every time.

    A good movie that comes to mind is, Divine secrets of the ya-ya sisterhood. It's funny and it has some crying moments too. I don't have it but I've been wanting to find it for a while now. Have you seen it? It's a Good movie. I pray you get to feeling better. If you need anything at all call me. Love ya, Sis.
