Last night Caleb and I watched The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith... it's one I wouldn't recommend because it takes so long to get happy that the whole thing I sat there feeling really sad for those people in life who don't have much. I also realized how fortunate I am. I have a loving husband and a beautiful baby boy who are both in love with me. God takes care of our every need-- even when it seems like we aren't going to have enough money that month, something comes through, and we're fine. I am blessed. Then I started thinking of Caleb's sister who is a bit crazy, has a bunch of kids all from different men, and lets life just take her out. I am sad for her life choices, and I am even more sad for those children who desperately need to be protected and loved-- in a world where there is so much sadness. Yet, I can do nothing to help them in their situation. They are innocent and life from the start throws them no help. Where is God in all of this? I know He cares, yet why is it that I have so much love in my life, starting with my parents and moving onto friends and then to Caleb, and others have crappiness thrown at them from the beginning. It makes me sad. I know that's kind of a lot of deep stuff, but I couldn't sleep last night because I kept thinking of everyone who doesn't have a choice in their life right now... and how i have a beautiful little baby who got 4 showers, has more clothes than he can wear, a mommy and daddy who love each other, and he doesn't even know how lucky he is. I could go on and on, and I won't.

So, onto a completely different subject-- there really isn't a good transition, so I won't even try. Caleb and I finally finished volume 2 of Heroes! I actually enjoyed this season more that the first, because it had more layers to peel apart and figure out. Now, I have to find something else to watch. I have one more month of being alone almost every night out of the week. So, any suggestions of tv shows I can Netflix would be appreciated! :)

Well, I think I'm going to try to get to bed early tonight (last night I didn't get to bed until 2!). So, I should start heading that way.

Oh, one more thing. I am going to nanny again this fall. I am going to be working with a family in Eagle with 2 little girls ages 4 and 5 for 2 days a week. I'm really excited and think it should work great with our little guy too!

Alright, enough for now.

Hey Meg-
Heroes is great... it's too bad they only made it through 6 episodes this season though.

I would recommend LOST. If you haven't seen any of the seasons, there are 3 available on Netflix which should keep you busy for a while.

If you like stories with layers... LOST won't disappoint.

Very cool, I'm glad that you took that job, I think it will work beautifully with your family.

And, you're right, we do have a lot of love in our homes, don't we? We are lucky!

And, Heroes rocks and I'm glad you enjoyed the second season, we liked it a lot, too. We're looking forward to new episodes.
