I carry your heart

I just watched "In Her Shoes". Have you seen it? It's an adaptation of the book by the same name. I've been remiss and haven't read the book yet, but I think, judging from the movie, that it's gonna be one that I'll buy and keep.

The story focuses on two sisters - the older one and the younger one. The frumpy one and the pretty one. The protective one and the reactive one. In so, so MANY ways, I identified with them. Rose and Maggie are Stacy and Bobbie. It's no wonder I cried buckets.

I'm taking the DVD with me to Tennessee next week, on the off chance that Bobbie hasn't seen it yet. If not, we'll watch it together. If so, we'll watch it together!

I love my seester. I can't wait to see her again. (IN TWO DAYS!!!!! I'm not excited or anything.)

i carry her heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)

Alright. The movie was in my Netflix queue, so I moved it from position 111 to position 1.

I call my little sister "Seester" too.

I so wish I could make it to Nashville on the 21st. I have to meet you one day! Have fun, and enjoy your time with your sister. Mine was here over the 4th and I was sick, so we didn't get to spend much time together. I miss her, too.

I've watched that movie twice already (and I rarely watch a movie more than once!) Love it. Great movie.

And next time I watch it - I will be putting and and your sis in teh starring roles.

Edit my last line to read:

And next time I watch it - I will be putting YOU and your sis in the starring roles. (I hate that you can't edit comments on Blogger ;))
