Look at my POOP HOLES!

Speaks for itself. I'll blog about this later, maybe.

I Double Dog Dare You!

Do you Dare?

A Rabbit Hole Moment

Bereaved parents will KNOW this moment oh so well. Fighting with your child over dumb things are wasted moments. Appreciate what you have because you never know when it will be gone. Hug your kids tighter and tell them you love them a few extra times. Do it now! Because I would give anything in the world to hold my son and tell him I love him just one more time.

Sexbot named FISTO!

So Jory was telling me about the craziness in the game Fallout New Vegas that he's been playing, something about a Sexbot named FISTO! So I figured I better introduce him to any new Vlog viewers. Enjoy!

So I started thinking you might want to see this SEXBOT named FISTO so instead of waiting for Jory to get home to find FISTO in his game again, I found it on Youtube...

Rabbit Hole

Tonight a few of us from MISS went and saw the movie Rabbit Hole with Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. They play bereaved parents of a four year old boy who was killed in a car accident. I wish they would have started the story before he died because it would have given the audience (who haven't experience the death of a child) time to know and fall in love with their beautiful little boy. Instead they start out 8 months after he died which created a safe distance to watch the horror from, emotionally speaking.

Don't get me wrong, I thought overall the movie was good. I definitely want to see it again without being so guarded and ready to judge. I was surprised by the amount of little things they included that were so Right On; Friends become strangers and strangers become friends. Veterans of Group Support. The spousal arguments. Moment in the grocery store. The grief not becoming easier over time, it just changes, becomes bearable over time. Being upset over comparing very different death stories. I don't want to give anything away so I'm not going to finish this long list or give you many details on purpose.

Most importantly, I loved the ending. I had heard previously that it didn't have a "Hollywood Happy Ending" and was excited by that. I wondered how they were going to do it though. Comes down to a conversation, "What do we do now?" "I don't know, but something." Which is so true...there is no "Happy Ending" after losing a child in real life. But we all have to do something, find some reason to live. Sometimes that "something" is simply, waiting it out until tomorrow.

My biggest complaint about the movie, is it only scratched the surface as far as the emotions go. I think Aaron Eckhart did an AMAZING job! I believed him immediately, it was real and raw. I didn't really get that from Nicole, she played a great sad person, but she never really "Went There" fully. I don't understand why everyone keeps buzzing about her for the Oscar because I don't think she deserves it. But that's just my opinion.

I think everyone should see this film, especially those friends and family members of bereaved parents. It does it's best to help you understand the insanity we woke up to the moment our child died.

Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.

According to the news on TV tonight, they read all the names on the plaques, meaning they read Jack's name! How AWESOME is that? I'm sorry I missed it but I'm glad I went to the MISS Memorial to be with all my new friends.

Our Jack by GranSandy

I've been going through all of Jack's "things" while scanning(finally!) the photos of Jack the hospital took for us. I went through the few cards we received and found Sandy's(Jory's mom) card and she wrote a poem for Jack, that I thought I'd share.

Our Jack

We love you so
You touched our hearts
A ray of sun expanding
over all of us.

A sparkle in the night
that we try to catch
and hold.

Oh Tiny Jack our Baby Boy
Your universal yet unique
Sweetness is so profound;
As is our complete Love
For You

Donate for My Kindness Project to Honor Jack!
