EVERY week during Extreme Home Makeover there's a point where I'm reduced to tears. Endless waterworks. I had to put a permanent box of tissues under my pc desk next to my tv. Tonight they beat me up. The show wasn't even 10 minutes into when Joey met her bone marrow donor. I just f'n lost it. It was such an emotional moment I just lost it. These families are always in such dire straights that it gets to me. I end up crying during the happy moments when they get the new house. Manipulation on the show's part? i dunno. All I know is it makes me happy to see folks so bad off get to change their lives by what this crew does for them in a week! Still 40 minutes left to the show. I better grab my Kleenex near! I am the schmaltz-meister!
