    1. I know how you feel Kate, I have to leave the room or turn the DVD off, stuff like that upsets me too much.

      We have the movie Kite Runner in the cupboard unopened because when I heard the boy in the movie got hurt in terrible ways, I absolutely refuse to watch it.

      Thanks for commenting x0x

  3. Love this! I also have a dry sense of humour that some people just don't get but that also makes it funnier haha! Awesome post :)
