Marley and Me


Today I saw the movie "Marley and Me" for the second time. Wow it is such a wonderful movie I just couldn't go without saying a little something about it.

I am an animal person. I always have been. I know there are a lot of people who are not, but this movie epitomizes why I love animals so much. It definitely doesn't sugar coat anything about animals (it includes all scenarios of poop, throw up, and other nasty behaviors) but it lovingly displays why that is all worth it.

When I went to see it for the first time I expected a comedy, and it was that and more! It really is a funny movie that makes you fall out of your chair laughing, but you also cry with the family, and every other emotion in the book. This story is life, and I love it! (including living in Florida and eventually ending up in the cold) Now I really want to read the book!

WATCH THIS MOVIE .......(but remember the tissue!)

Not sure I want to see it right now. We told Alycia when she was home that we are going to let everyone say "goodbye" to Bridget when they are home this summer and then we are going to have to put her down. Alycia just started bawling and Sarah and Alex are pretty sad also. It's sad! Anyhow, I don't really want to see that movie right now because of what we are having to plan for Bridget.

I'm torn about this one! Someone ruined the ending for me and I don't think I could handle it, so I've got it on the backburner for now. Eventually, though! :0)

Well, since I'm not a pet owner, this movie wasn't a fav... My sister-in-law on the other hand, sobbed uncontrollably and loved it!

Hey Kira - It was good to see you the other night! Hopefully we'll see you soon! I really want to see Marley & Me but part of me thinks I may just be TOO emotional to handle it LOL :)
