It seems like in life it does not matter what we do or what we say, we can always be reminded of what we don’t want to be reminded of at all. Keith and I went to see a movie last night. I wanted to see a comedy because I needed something to pick me up and help me to laugh. So we looked at the preview for “Marley and Me”. The previews they show for this movie are hilarious and I will tell you that most of the movie will keep you in stitches laughing. It is such a cute movie. I do not want to ruin the movie for anyone so I will not go into too much detail but the end just made me sob in the movie theater. I was not expecting what happened to happen. The crying I did is not like what you would do in a normal movie where you cry over something sad. I did not just cry; I sobbed. I was sad for the rest of the night. Keith and I talked on the way home and he said this, “I guess it does’t matter what movie we watch we will always be reminded of Mari.” And he is just so right.
Before we left for Hawaii, at the beginning of December, we went to see “Four Christmases” with Reece Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn. This was another comedy, it is highly recommendable. The whole premise behind the movie is the characters of Reece and Vince is that both of their sets of parents were divorced and so they had to go and visit each one of their parents houses for Christmas, hence Four Christmases. Well, the first house they visit is Vince’s character’s dad’s house. We are sitting watching the movie and one of the brother’s 9 month old daughter is wearing a beautiful Christmas dress. What is unbelievable about this beautiful Christmas dress is the fact that it is the same exact dress I got for Mari last year and what she wore on Christmas day. I mean what are the odds. So Keith and I think we may not see many new movies for awhile and only watch those that we know will not be such a reminder of our beautiful baby girl.
