In the Dark

Ready for another installment of Stream of Conciousness Saturday? Hold please, while I set the timer for 5 minutes. And away we go!!

I've started and stopped this blog post too many times. First, Jay decided to discuss Christmas decor with me. Both our home, and the two rentals. We find that December does better when we have holiday pictures up for potential guests to see when they are considering ours amongst so many other options.

Then I started to go down the depressing route. Its cold and dark here at my cabin way in the winter all too often. We are built into the side of a hill and only get a couple hours of sunlight, and of course its dark by 6PM thanks to daylight saving time.

But mostly I don't want to be Debbie Downer. My heart is heavy, but I'm trying to stay positive. I'm not sure how good of a job I'm doing though. Mostly I just think I'm sticking my head in the sand, and not truly accomplishing anything.

When I feel the need to cry, I'm at work or around friends and don't feel like I can. When I'm at home, I can't muster the tears. I know that sounds weird but...

Guess I chose the depressing option after all.

Do you have an "I need a good cry" movie or song as your go-to? Are you even a cryer?


  1. I'm a crier and I wish I could turn it off a little easier. I cry reading books, watching movies, some songs get me and if someone near me cries, I do too.
    I'm sorry you're needing to cry. Maybe you better go into the bathroom at work if it hits and just let it out.

  2. I am a crier also and have had my fair share of crying lately

  3. Good cry show: The Walking Dead. Yes, I'm a bit nuts, but on this season's premiere, Kyle said if I didn't get it together, we weren't watching it anymore. LOL.

  4. I cry very easily, so I don't need a song or movie! But "P.S. I Love You" would help you get it out if you really feel the need! And maybe this is ridiculous, but as far as songs go, the end of Taylor Swift's "The Best Day" gets me every time!
