Hormones have led me to a lot of silly, irrational tears and sobbing over the past couple of months. My students have really gotten a kick out of my crying stories lately, so I thought it would be fun to sort of make fun of our pregnant emotions here and share our irrational, hormonal meltdowns.
Here is mine from this week:
1) I was driving a couple hours away from home and naturally just listening to random Pandora music on the road. That Miranda Lambert "The House That Built Me Song" came on. In the song, there is a line about her favorite dog being buried in the yard of her childhood home. This made me instantly think of my own dogs' mortality, and it spiraled out of control from there. I invisioned having to make the decision to put them down, and then it truly felt like my dogs and died or were dying. Cue ugly crying. Thinking about my dogs passing would be enough to make me sad any day, but I was openly sobbing in the car. Thanks, hormones.
