I woke up Sunday and didn’t feel like doing a whole lot so I put on It’s Complicated, because it looked like a good movie to watch! Here is the Amazon description of the movie:
Two-time Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin star in this hilarious look at marriage, divorce and everything in between. Jane (Streep) has three grown kids, a thriving Santa Barbara bakery and an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, Jake (Baldwin). Now, a decade after their divorce, an innocent dinner between Jane and Jake turns into the unimaginable – an affair. Caught in the middle of their rekindled romance are Jake’s young wife and Adam (Martin), a recently divorced architect who starts to fall for Jane. Could love be sweeter the second time around? It’s… complicated! From writer/director Nancy Meyers comes the comedy that critics call “laugh-out-loud funny” (Rex Reed, The New York Observer).
I seriously LOVED this movie, but the reason I loved it so much was because I could relate to this movie. I don’t want to get too deep into conversation in case you haven’t seen this movie yet but let’s just say I know all too well what Meryl Streep’s character was going through in this movie and why she did the things she did!
I admire the character because she was strong enough to make the realization between reality and keeping her family together in the right way rather than following other thoughts. You see this was a great eye opening movie for me and it has only helped me determine where I am going in my personal and business life. This movie reminded me that I need to be strong and follow that “what’s best for me” attitude, because what is best for me will inevitably mean I am doing what’s best for my children!
So did you see It’s Complicated? Love or hate it? Could you relate to any parts at all? Ssshhh don’t give away the movie to those who haven’t seen it!
I am serious! I think way too much, I don’t usually analyze things to death but I certainly try to make certain my thoughts are real and valid. Then I try to take my thoughts and turn them into a resolution, an action plan so to speak. If I work out an action plan with my thoughts then reality is real, a heart felt decision that one must make and move forward with.
Today I ramble to you, because my mind was so overwhelmed the past two nights that my shoulders are tense and everyone who is close to me can see how reserved I have become. I once became overly happy, positive and outgoing I now sit at home and watch as my mood fades and I get sleepy all the time.
This is not me, the real me is outgoing, social and loves to smile! When I go outside with my kids and sit in the backyard or run in the backyard I feel at ease, my mind is free, I can think clear thoughts and realize there are some decisions I must make and some realities I must face.
Life is only difficult if you make it that way, complicated sure … of course, but do not let complication scare you away from your heart felt feelings. As a few good friends of mine remind me of daily – follow your gut, because that is the true instinct of what you should do in life.
That is what I will do, I will follow my gut and hope that all fits back into piece like a puzzle that you spent months trying to put together.

It’s official … SpongeBob SquarePants: Legends of Bikini Bottom is now out on DVD for you all to purchase this holiday season! I will admit that I personally am not a huge fan of SpongeBob SquarePants, but my children love him and so that is why I did receive this DVD to review so my children could enjoy some SpongeBob every now and then!
Taken from the Press Release
Experience an all-new, spine-tingling adventure with SpongeBob, Patrick and the gang in the DVD premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: Legends of Bikini Bottom, which bows on DVD ten weeks before its on-air premiere in January 2011. Even the spineless will squirm as SpongeBob and Patrick find themselves held prisoner by a backward gang. SpongeBob and pals look for a way out of the Bikini Bottom Triangle and an evil hag curses the Krusty Krab! Try not to laugh as Patrick finds he has lots in common with a monster that invades town, SpongeBob and Patrick search for a drain that once destroyed the city, and a volcanic eruption brings an ancient warrior to Bikini Bottom. This never-before-seen journey from the Emmy Award®-winning SpongeBob SquarePants contains six legends in one swell adventure. Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment.
Watching My Children’s Reactions
I have three children they are 8, 4 and 2. I honestly thought that my 8 year old had outgrown SpongeBob but oh no! All three of my children sat glued to this DVD for the running time of 68 minutes. They watched it two times in one day and from there I have limited the viewing so we can enjoy outdoor time before NH Winter gets here!
I would say that my children absolutely loved this DVD and I do think that if you are a parent who has children that love SpongeBob as much as mine well then you just may want to pick this up since it won’t air live until January 2011 which means there’s plenty of time to watch this DVD after Christmas before the live airing!

I noticed tonight that my sidebar is all in italics, which means Miss Brandy Ellen didn’t close out an italic code … you know the <em> didn’t end with </em> somewhere and has caused my whole sidebar to be in italics … so until I have the time to go through and find out how or why or where this happened let me know .. what do you think??
I think it looks okay as far as appearance goes so I figured I can leave it until I have time to investigate … right?!
