This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Movie Review: The Butterfly Effect


The Butterfly Effect - starring Ashton Kutchner

"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world - Chaos Theory"

And so begins The Butterfly Effect.

As a young boy, Evan begins to black out and is unable to recall events that have just occurred. His mother takes him to see a psychiatrist who suggests that Evan begin a journal and write things down as they occur to get an idea of how much he is blacking out. As a college student, Evan struggles with not knowing what happened during these blackouts and begins searching for answers. In his search, he learns a way to travel back in time to change the events that have shaped his life and the life of those around him. However, he soon learns that changing these events come with dire consequences.

Despite not-so-favorable reviews of this movie, I found this movie to actually be quite good. However it was somewhat emotionally difficult to watch. Ashton Kutchner does a good job at stepping out of his usual Kelso-ness for this role. Overall, I would say it was worth watching.

Conclusion: If you are a fan of paranormal, mind-spinning movies, then this movie is for you. It may be emotionally upsetting for some people (in particular, bereaved parents), and I would not recommend it for the under-18 audience.

Thanks for stopping by our T21 Traveling Afghan blog! My heart goes out to you, Heather and all the other moms who have empty arms. I lost a child through a failed adoption and while it is nowhere near the type of pain you feel, I can understand, just a little, what you go through day in and day out. Hugs to you!

I thought it was a good movie too. I think my son has watched it at least 5 times.
