Mistake

Boy did I make a mistake.
Sitting home alone while Chris is at work and since nothing was on TV I ordered what I 'thought' was a romantic comedy off the OnDemand starring Jenifer Aniston. I mean, what movie is bad with her in it?!

Little did I know, the movie stars a character who helps grieving people that are grieving over a close loved one because he is also coping with the death of his wife. In one part of the movie, he struggles to help this one character who lost his son and when he was being challenged he stated..

"I'm not ready, he should be playing baseball with me not in a box in the ground"

Yup. I paid to watch a movie about the last thing I want to think about. Go me.

Oh no! I was actually going to rent that! I love Jennifer Aniston. I think I'll save it for another time now... I hate that we cannot even do innocent things such as watch movies now because sometimes it hurts too much! Thinking of you.

Oh I am so sorry. I recently watched a movie and the entire thing was practically about a baby dying unexpectedly and the mother grieving. It was awful, but I am glad I was alone when i watched it, I cried a lot. (((hugs)))

Don't you hate that?!?! I read The Time Traveler's Wife while on maternity leave and she keeps having miscarriages. What a shocker that way. I wasn't expecting it AT ALL. And then I was flipping through channels that week and started watching some movie that had already started only to catch it right as the woman is losing her baby. What the hell??? I'm sorry you ran into that, too!

yea, totally just watched this movie last night (I had it waiting from blockbuster online) after reading your post, not realizing this was the movie you were talking about. I don't think the title has anything to do with the story.. I thought it was a romantic comedy??

Yep, just watched that movie over the weekend, thinking the exact same thing, that is was going to be a romantic comedy... and it almost made me bawl my eyes out... So hard hearing words that you're thinking inside on the tv screen when you're not expecting them... hugz.
