This just in...

I don't know if many of you have heard, but Joaquin Phoenix appears to be quiting the acting business. What?!! He is an amazing actor. He is believable and true to each character he portrays. You can't help but get sucked into each movie he is in...because of him! I can watch him in any movie over and over. Signs...I've seen that movie probably about 200 times. I am so sad about this news. I know we should all just respect his desires and let him go about his way, but I can honestly say I will be truly saddened by his absence. I'm hoping he will return some day, and I'll be waiting with baited breath until he does. Okay, that's a little extreme/obsessive, but he's just that good. Also, incredible acting talent aside, he's just a good person. I will miss him. Good luck in the music industry Joaquin. You'll be great.
Excuse me now while I go buy every film Joaquin has ever been in. (the ones that aren't rated "R") That's another thing: don't producers/directors understand that by giving a movie an R rating, you are automatically limiting your audience and will probably make less money. That's a whole different blog entry though. Another day maybe.

Record Breaker

Well, I have broken my record of one month breaks between blogs! I love breaking records. Some of you have been wondering how I'm doing after my surgery...or you just want to see the aftermath. So here it is:
I think it looks pretty good. I am still sore though when I try and contort my wrist into certain positions (maybe I shouldn't do that) or when my kiddos at school unknowingly dig their fingers into my scar. Stupid hand-under-hand techniques. Anyway, my doctor said everything looks real good. It may still be sore at times for awhile, even months. The wrist is a sensitive area.
In other news, I have begun running. I decided I needed to exercise. So, about once every 2 weeks, I decide to go running. Nice right! I'll be in shape in no time.

Suprisingly, this is not me, this is what I pretend I look like when I'm running. Hopefully I look this way too. Eh...maybe later.
Other than these news flashes, Reed and I are just continuing with school and work...blah, blah, blah.
