Happy and Sad News

First, the happy news!!
As I was catching up on "news" this morning (both girls were asleep), I saw where People is reporting that Renee Zellweger is "packing it on" for another Bridget Jones!!! I'm not sure why I love movies that are somewhat British, but I do. I'm also a big fan of "Love Actually" and "Notting Hill", just to name a couple.
And for the really happy news...The Muffin and I have a playdate for Friday! It's not just a playdate for her, but it's for me too. We'll be spending a little quality time with The Mommies and their boys after we finish at the Ob/Gyn office. In other words...I get to see my friends!!!! I know the time will pass too quickly and we will have to focus on our kids, but I'm so excited to see my girls! We'll be moving during our next scheduled meeting (a.k.a. a birthday party) so I'll miss out. We're also planning to visit my old real estate office, ride by our old house and stop in to see Gammy Gladys and Paul. After all of our visiting we'll be getting back "home" to Baby Ellie and Big Daddy. I wish they could come along, but Big Daddy must work and Baby Ellie doesn't love to ride in the car just yet. She'll be getting spoiled at Nana's.

And for the sad part of the post...Robert Redford has just remarried! If you don't know, I fell in love with him during my sophomore English class. My teacher, Ms. Morris, made me do it. She had a great affinity for Robert Redford and I guess it passed on to me when we read and watched "The Great Gatsby". Big Daddy took me to see "Up Close and Personal" because he was in it and I've seen "All the President's Men" countless times. If I ever have a dog, I'd like to name him Redford...or Hamnet after Shakespeare's son.

You will have so much fun just getting out with old friends. Enjoy every minute away and remember you deserve it.

Oh that should be fun. I've been to a couple play dates now and they are quite interesting. I sorta feel like they are super fun mixed with some judgment! Would you ever consider having a pet?

Love Great Gatsby!

Very cool about Zellweger, too, though I don't think I saw the 2nd Bridget Jones.
