The Ultimate Gift

Tonight I watched the movie, "The Ultimate Gift". It was adapted from a book by the same name written by Jim Stovall. I haven't read the book, but I really enjoyed the movie so I might see if the library has it. It's a tear-jerker, so you're warned. It's also a decent PG movie, which aren't always easy to find. I really loved the actors in it. Abigail Breslin plays an outspoken little girl that develops an important relationship with the main character, Jason. When I saw Jay Leno live last January, she was one of the guests. She is really a talented kid.

Still Raining. Have a Laugh.

On a gloomy day, have a laugh for free. You may or may not want "this" laugh. It's long but funny!

"You're old enough some people say
To read the signs and walk away.
It's only time that heals the pain
And makes the sun come out again.
It's raining again..."

"I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love..."

"I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when it's complicated
And though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains
You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains..."

"Why does the sun always shine
On the other side, on the other side
Why does it always have to be
Oh raining
Always raining on me?..."

Three Dog Night

It's fall... the leaves are turning, the winds are brisk, the husband is hunting. Last night I had been planning on scrapbooking, but I ended up staying home and watching TV. Me & the girls curled up in bed and watched Gilmore Girls and went to sleep early.
