Alice in Wonderland...

Has anyone seen the new version of Alice in Wonderland made by Tim Burton? I really had no desire to see it in the theaters as I am not a fan of Tim Burton's work normally. But someone gave Emily the movie a few months ago, and this past weekend I had 6 loads of laundry to sit and fold so I threw the movie on and sat down to fold.

I have to say, I was overall amazed with the movie. Very good special effects and they did a good job with the story line. It's still kinda "out there" for little kids to see. Emily still says it scares her.

As the credits were playing, this song I have playing on my blog "Alice" started playing. And the words grabbed me. I sat and listened to it realizing it fits my life perfect right now.

My world has been flipped upside down, inside out, spun around and dropped in the last two years. And just when i think it has to get better, or we've reached the end, it starts all over. I had a medical professional look at me in amazement and say "I can't believe your still standing with all you deal with." I guess that pretty much sums up my life.

So this song, written by Avril Lavigne for the movie made me realize my life right now is much like Alice's in the movie. I fell through a hole and have been fighting my way back. Every corner, there is some rabbit or twiddle Dee's waiting for me, a smoking caterpillar telling me it's all a dream, a wicked witch laughing that I'll never get to the end.

But you know what? I will get there. I will make it. I didn't come this far to have a tea party with the Mad Hatter. So watch out Wicked Witch...I'm coming after you!

We saw a little bit of it at my IL's house a few weeks ago. It was definately an odd movie! Em had seen it in the theater with her cousin, and she and her cousin both really enjoyed it.
