Please let the movies be!!!

Let It Be

Why oh why must every movie made when I was a child suddenly need to be re-made in this generation? Is there no one capable in Hollywood to come up with an original movie? These new version are just horrible, For example the old TV show Dark Shadows in my opinion was a great show and then here come “the re-make” dum dum dum. The movie made version of Dark Shadows looked to ridiculous from the trailer alone for me to bother spending my money on a ticket to see it in the theater. That isn’t the only one, unfortunately. Another quick example 21 Jump Street. The Show was a great show when I was younger and I can see by putting funny actors they turned it into a comedy but then it really shouldn’t be named after a drama show. Please Hollywood give me something original.

If these movies or TV shows were good in there day just leave it alone. If they weren’t please stop beating the dead horse. If it stunk once, chances are it will stink again. Oh and my all time favorite… the groups of movies. For example, Batman. You have the Michael Keaton era, the George Clooney era, the Val Kilmer era, the Christian Bale era and now from my understanding the Ben Affleck era. The goes for a lot of movies made from comics. Please for all that is mighty, Hollywood just let the movies be! They’ve had their time, just let them go with dignity and time to start putting your people to work creating some new stuff for us to watch cause I tell ya I can’t remember the last time I went to the movies.


Post-Surgery and life is happening

Well its Friday and I’m feeling much better today than I did yesterday. I had surgery yesterday on my back for a herniated disc that was pinching my sciatic nerve in my left leg. This was all caused by a car accident I was involved in last November. The procedure was a same day procedure so I didn’t need to stay overnight at the hospital. It was done early and I was back home by 2p.m. The remainder of the afternoon and evening came with much difficulty. Not only did I have pain in my back I suffer from chronic migraines and it was on full blast last night. So apart from the migraine and back pain I was also suffering from really bad nausea and dizziness.

I have mentioned in other posts that I have recently separated from my husband. We separated thinking that maybe the space would help somehow bring us back together. yesterday kind of showed me that could never happen after the way he treated me. instead of being the person I needed to lean on, he decided it would be better for him to leave a go play soccer. So I ended up getting help to the bathroom by my ten year old daughter, while my twelve and eight year old were giving me things like crackers to combat the nausea.

I have never been so hurt and especially by someone who I have spent fourteen years married to. We had our problems and decided it would be in our best interest to separate but I never thought that separation also included emotions and compassion. At least it didn’t for me, no matter what is happening in our lives I can’t forget fourteen years that easily. I could never leave him if he needed me, I am just not that person. It just pains me to think that in my time of need that someone who should be by my side isn’t. Our marriage has been quite the roller coaster and just some days we just butt heads to no end but I loved him so I dealt with all the problems. My thinking was that as a mother and his wife it was by obligation or duty to do all in my power to keep us together. I wonder if there are other women out there who felt as though they had to endure so much negativity or insults from a spouse because that was part of your wifely duties? I guess that goes for men too, anyone who has ever been in this type of marriage. It isn’t easy to be in a marriage you’re not happy in but thinking that you have to because that is your place in this life.

Well I thank God for my children. Although they’re dad wasn’t a big help, my girls were there for me when I needed someone most. A twelve, ten and eight year taking care of me like little nurses is beyond words for me. I couldn’t ever imagine what my life would have been like had they never existed. I felt bad in the beginning about asking they’re dad to leave the house because I thought my girls would resent me or feel we were forcing them to take sides. Instead my relationship with them has never been better. They seem like happier little girls and the communication I have with them is wonderful. they talk to me so much more about what goes on in their daily lives and they had never done that before. Things are difficult but at the same time other aspects are getting better.

So this is my update on life and surgery. Today is a good post-surgery day, hopefully tomorrow will be even better. Hopefully the rest of my current situation will get better each day too.

Until next time…. HAPPY BLOGGING!!!

Dear Mommy,

I am such a happy dog because you take such good care of me.  You love me and even cry when I get hurt.  That’s why when you’re hurt I stay with you until you feel better.  I can’t talk to you or hug you but I stay with you to show you my love.  You are so special to me mommy, you and my sisters.  I am so happy you’re my family and wouldn’t switch you guys for anyone else.




Photography 101- Day 5 Solitude



Solitude doesn’t have to be depressing or sad.  I think that sometimes it can be a great thing to help you in your everyday lives. we all need a moment to ourselves to sit and reflect on our lives. what we need to change in ourselves to make our lives and the lives of those around us better.  It’s also a good way to weed out the bad situations we’re in.  I love to sit alone sometimes and try to reflect on things in my life.  It helps me to gain some clarity into this hectic life.

My Dog

Literate for a Day



Dear Cholo,

I just wanted to say thank you for being the loving dog that you are.  There is a certain love that only a pet can give and you give that every single day.  I appreciate so much the love you give this family and the protection you give us.  When I had my surgery and came back home from the hospital, I couldn’t understand why you were all over me more than usual. Then I noticed that you kept putting your head on top of my bandages.  A friend pointed out how you were taking care of me in your own little way.  And when you got hurt and the Vet said you would never be able to walk again the hurt I felt for you was unbearable.  Thank God all the prayers came through and you began walking again.  You are my miracle puppy and me and the girls love you so much.  You’ve brought a different type of love and compassion into our lives and I can’t imagine my or the girls lives without you.

You make us laugh so much and people surely do get intimidated by your mighty roar when you see something you don’t like.  When the girls are scared or have nightmares you have protected them by sleeping with them and just staying with them and you mere presence makes them feel so protected and safe.  Although you are only nine pounds, the love you give and the love we have for you are as big as the world.  I love you Cholo, you are the best dog, little brother, son, friend anyone could ever have.

The Glory Of Love

By Heart


You’ve got to give a little, take a little,

and let your poor heart break a little.

that’s the story of, that’s the glory of love.

You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little

until the clouds roll by a little

that’s the story of, that’s the glory of love

As long as there’s the two of us,

we’ve got the world and all it’s charms.

and when the world is through with us,

we’ve got each others arms.

you’ve got to win a little, lose a little

yes and always have the blues a little

that’s the story of, thats the glory of love

that’s that story of, that’s the glory of love

     I fell in love with this song when I first heard Bette Midler sing it in the movie Beaches.  I was so in love with Bette Midler that my mother took me to see her in concert for my 10th birthday.  My dad started to call me Bette Midler.  My dad passed away two years ago and I feel like this song is just for me and him.  When I do watch the movie or hear this song I can imagine that Bette Milder is singing it for me and him.  I miss my dad terribly and think of him everyday and by this song we can be together.
