Attention Span of a Tsetse Fly

I saw My Sister's Keeper last night, bought the book and find myself outraged by the ways the producers changed the story.

Walking to my car from the movie, I deeply felt the heat of the day and a poetic description of it riffled through my head.

Katie's car was vandalized yesterday in retaliation for her choice to have a car towed from her parking spot.

My 77-year-old father is being baptized this Sunday.

And what am I posting this morning? Pure fun.

Kate and I had a little "bitch" session on the phone about what happened to her yesterday....We decided she would be the bigger person and say/do nothing in retaliation! Wow how we have grown :)

Ps. Baby video= cutest thing ever.

Pps. I'm a nurse!!!!!!!! I passed my boards yesterday :)

Felt the same way about the movie/book.

WTF with the car being vandalized?

Find it fascinating your father is being baptized.

I read My Sister's Keeper last year and quite enjoyed it, and was going to see the movie until I heard about how they'd changed the ending. I have no desire to see it now...but that is usually the way it goes when books get adapted to film.

The book is always better.

I loved the book. I think, like all other movies, I'll wait til it hits DVD and I'll order it from the library.

This post is a bit like life - a little pain, a little joy, and always something to love and laugh about.

Someone just sent me this and I, two seconds ago, put it into a blog draft for when the time was right! I'm still going to post it!

MY KIDS LOVE IT! THEY WERE ROLLING! Riley insists one of the babies looks just like Seth.

Sorry about Katie's car. Didn't read/see Sister's Keeper yet.

May your father and daughter be blessed with love.

Felt much joy watching the babies last night on TV and even more joy when I came to this post and was able to watch them again. So darn cute no matter how they did it. Thanks for posting the video.
