I gotta just start off with "The Bears suck:P" Bah...as if anyone thought they were going to win today...
Aside from some pretty crappy weather, we had quite a nice little Christmas here at the Warden household:) I took a little break from blogging (I noticed many of you did the same). Good for us, right? It's nice not to spend all of our time with our nose in the computer;)
Last night, Husband and I watched The Women on Video on Demand. Did you all see this movie? I meant to see it in the theater, and just never got around to it...It was an OK...total chick flick. There is certainly the obvious..."what the heck has Meg Ryan done to her face?!?" Then there is the..."holy can Jada Pinkett Smith get any hotter!" (Husband disagreed with me on this) Let's not forget the "Candice Bergen rocks in all movies!"
All in all, I kind of enjoyed it. It's your basic, Meg Ryan's character is not really a person until she starts carving out a piece of her life for herself. Her husband starts having an affair with Eva Mendes. Her daughter is finding a better mother in her best friend Anette Benning than with her. Let's not forget that she gets fired by her father:( So she wallows around being pathetic for a while...
Then she peels herself off the floor, goes out and gets a good haircut, begs rich Mom to invest in her business idea, and designs her own label of fabu. clothes. Yeah...if only life were that easy. That said, I do believe a good haircut and a cute pair of boots can get you quite a long way;)
The thing is...I agree with the brood strokes of this plot. Yes, women (wives, mothers, friends) deserve to carve out something that is theirs. Something that makes us feel like we have worth beyond all of the folks we take care of (not taking away from the enormity of that task).
It is kind of shocking to me how much better I feel about myself since I started my blogging adventure. Learning Illustrator, and chugging along with my blog designing has given me an identity beyond being a wife and mother. Right now it is small, but I can't help but feel it's leading somewhere bigger. So...Yay!
I was all wrapped up in this, and loving the last scene of Meg Ryan at her fashion show (which was fabulous) and then Deborah Messings character went into labor...ewww! Can I just say, I hate the way Hollywood portrays child birth? 'Cause I do!
Good Lord! If I was Deborah M's Husband, I think I would have to leave her after that scene:P I don't remember any screaming in the delivery room when I had my two babies? I went in...had the epidural...took a nap...woke up. With Miss Peach, I pushed three times (took 15 min) and that was it. With The Little Man, I pushed once (maybe took 8 min). I wasn't screaming at my Husband "you did this to me!" There was no awful primal grunting, sweating, redfaced horror. Did I just have it easy? That childbirth scene left me in shock. Had I seen it pre children, I would have been scared to death ! Ah well, I suppose it's Hollywoods job to make life a bit more interesting...I guess my experience wouldn't have made much of a movie;)
So...everyone back from their breaks? Great Holidays all around? Lay it on me! Oh...did I mention the Bears suck?!?
