Did It Again!

I forgot to tell you guys that my au pair and I finished the entire series of M*A*S*H just the other day. We started right around the time she came to us (early January) and it took us just over 5 months to do the whole 11 seasons and finale episode. I don't know how many of you have watched that last episode, but there's a particular scene involving Hawkeye remembering what happened to him on the bus coming back from the 4th of July party. That scene is very, very emotional and it makes me cry every time. But this time it was different...I completely lost it. I haven't cried so hard in I don't know how long. Maybe it's the pregnancy hormones or the fact that I've been a mom for a while now (or both), but I covered my eyes and just bawled for a good solid minute. The kind of crying where your chest is heaving up and down. And I knew what was coming, too!! I've seen the scene twice before, and it affected me this time more than ever. I don't want to give it away for those of you who haven't seen this episode, but for those of you who have, you definitely know what I'm talking about...

On a side note, Shmuel made the funniest comment today. He referred to the new baby as "the third twinner". How funny is that! I was like "um sweetie, you can't have a *third* twinner...just two." hehe I love him.


  1. I totally know what you mean. That episode just kills me every time.

    Sometimes those kind of crying jags just sneak up on me. Once I was reading a book (a novelization of the book of Ruth) and I was crying like that... the hiccup sobs... I actually hand to put the book away three pages from the end. I wasn't able to come back and finish it for a few hours.

  2. I hate that episode. I usually skip it when I watch the whole series and my hubby refuses to watch it. I think I've seen the whole series 4 times and the last episode only twice.
