Tunes On The Tube: December 4 – 10

You know when you’re going through a bit of a tough time but you’re all, “This will be okay” and then you find out something that makes it tougher and then something after that that makes it A LOT tougher?  Welcome to my week.  I’ve officially had 2 breakdowns today, and 1 last night.  At the risk of sounding whiny, it really feels like I’m a punching bag for the big guy in the sky right now, and I’d like to know when it will all be better.  Oh wait, it won’t until I get through all the crap that’s happening NEXT YEAR.  That’s right, folks, my bad time is following me well into 2013.  My mom keeps reminding me I could have it worse, and she’s right.  I’m not dying.  I’m just having a bit of a particularly stressful financial crisis due to the state of the insurance system in this country.  Which I will get over.  Eventually.

After my latest breakdown at work approximately 30 seconds ago (don’t worry, my bosses are out so I’m not subjecting them to the horrors of my unprofessional cry face), you know what cheered me up just a sliver?  The thought that at least there’s a new PARENTHOOD tonight.  And then I remembered that just the promo for tonight’s episode made me cry last week, so I’m sure I’ll be doing some serious heaving and blubbering come 10:00pm.  Which might be just what I need… a bit of PARENTHOOD to clean out my system.

What about you guys?  Do you ever just feel like you need a good cry?  Do you have any shows that make you cry during every. single. episode. –  without fail?
