I've been downright melancholy lately. I think it's the hormones. Nevertheless.
There has been a lot of sighing going on.
I thought a good way to work some of this tearfulness out of my system would be to go and see My Sister's Keeper. You know, just flat out torture some emotion out of myself in big heaping helpings of release.
What I didn't expect was to be blindsided by the trailer for my favorite book before I had even broken out the tissues:
People, The Time Traveler's Wife is my favorite book. Possibly of all time. Possibly period. I read it when I was pregnant with Q and I remember every moment of it, along with where I was when I read and experienced each second of this amazing love story.
I think our brains are particularly permeable to emotions we feel during pregnancy. Our hormones seem to embed certain experiences just a little bit deeper.
I can not wait for this movie. This story tore my heart into pieces and put them back together in a stronger way.
