We had Ava's birthday party today. Ryan and his parents came over as well as my Mama and Daddy. Ava had like, 30 friends running around in our yard (including Alexandra Astin!). Sheesh, remind me about this when her sixteenth party comes up. Ryan's mother, Susan comes up to me and asks about Russell and I. I politely tell her that we're " dating but I'd rather not discuss it " and she looks at me " Oh, long distance ? Never works. " and walks off. Ryan walked over and said " What was that about ? " I said " Nothin' ". Sean and Christine attended the party, which was nice since I had SOME people I actually like. They met Ryan, he was joking with Sean calling him Samwise. Ryan hated the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I mean, hated it. Seth Green and I had to practically drag him to see the three films. He said " This is dumb shit ". I told him " It is beautiful literature, now quiet you!". Ava like me loves the movies, I think she is a Lord of the Rings ekkie ( The LOTR Trekkie, minus the loving Star Trek ). She knows every line and wants to be Arwen for Halloween. I think she actually wants to be Liv. Oh well, I'm happy that her childhood thing is LOTR...mine was the Beastie Boys. :

I hope some of you saw Vanity Fair this weekend, haha. My red hair was really hot and my pregnantness was hot too. However, that film was incredible to work on and I am very proud of it. Everybody was so fun and creative, and I loved playing Becky Sharp. Tomorrow I see Russell ( since our trip to Hawaii ) and I am excited. I have mixed feelings about us. Some days I am so confident about it, and others I wonder. . .
I heard from a friend that he was seen flirting with some woman during Cinderella Man and I am aware of this. The kids are with Ryan for the week, he took them to Disney Land. Ava called me and said she rode the teacups about 10 times. I am sitting at home ( most nights alone ) bored. I've always had the kids here, and it's weird. I really miss them a lot. My cousin is getting married in a month and my mom wants me to come down. The family down in the south is so fun and I love them to bits. Well, I have got to go but I'll write again soon!

Today I went back to school shopping with Ava. She was having so much fun picking out outfits, and I'm pretty sure that there is a boy involved since she stuck her tounge out at the "boyish" outfits that I tried to coax her into trying on. Ava is already into boys. . .whoa, I didn't notice the opposite sex until I was a teenager. Maybe she got it from Ryan's side ? Ava only wanted pink dresses and frilly skirts. No "boy pants " which were jeans and cargo pants. Deacon was really upset today, he has begun to teeth and is not enjoying it at all. He has also begun to pull hair, which hurts a lot. He tries to pull Ava's hair a lot, and he occasionally will rip some of mine out. The lady at the cash register recognized me and we had a chat about some of my movies. She was a fan of Election, one of my older ones. After shopping at the Gap Kids we drove to the hotel where Mrs. Phillippe is staying. The kids went to lunch with their Grandmother and I went to a movie with Selma Blair [ one of my best girl friends and costars ]. We saw that new Matthew Lillard movie, Without a paddle. It was funny, dumb but funny. The kids are going to be home anytime now, and I promised them I would make them dinner tonight and then we'd watch. . . - sigh - a horrid Disney movie. I think it's going to be Cinderella since Ava is in love with that film, but I don't know. It could be Bambi again. :

Today I had the day off. Ryan's mother ( who is in town for the week ) babysat while he and I went for a game of tennis. It's nice to still be able to hang out with him. Guess what ? I beat him. Well, I think we all knew that I would. Then we went out for lunch at a cute little cafe and talked. Ryan will always be a good friend of mine but nothing more. Then Ryan took the kids to see a movie and I had time to myself. I went shoe shopping ( shoes are my fetish ) and I walked around downtown Los Angeles. Some people recognized me and I stopped to give autographs. Paris, Jake, Nicky and Nicole haven't returned my calls and I think that they are all very pissed at me. I apologized though for what happened in Hawaii and I'm upset that they are still mad at me. I think I may have lost some friends. :

Men are evil. Even ones named Joaquin Phoenix.
Boy, was today completely freaky. As some of you know, I'm filming a movie called "Walk the line". It's a biopic about the great Johnny Cash. I play June Carter Cash. Well, the boys on the set decided to play a prank on me. We were going to do costume changes in a location 20 minutes away and then drive to the studio, so I was sitting in my makeup chair doing makeup with Katrina ( my lovely makeup artist ) when I heard the van pull away. I screeched and ran outside in the rain ( ugh ) chasing after the van. When I lost it ( about a street later ) I walked back to the makeup room and was quite upset because I thought that everybody would be pissed that I missed the van. I sat there for 10 minutes not being able to reach the director and tell him I'd be late. The director sternly tells me that it was my fault for not being on time and my paycheck is going to be minimized to pay for the crew having to stay extra time. I begin to sob at this point and then Joaquin Phoenix aka Johnny Cash walks into my trailer with a smirk on his face and says, "Why are you crying Bunnykins ? " ( a nickname he calls me after he found out my childhood nickname ) and I realize that Joaquin was never in the van either. I began to scream at him and smack, smack, smack until we fall on the floor and crack up.

Ha, let's just say that I will never win the mother of the year award by any means. I left the Astin children and my children alone for the entire day. Really, If I wasn't considered stupid before, I just won the award. How could I not realize that Jennifer was not coming? She did that thing on the phone where she pauses as she says each word. The last time she did that she never showed up. Oops, I found out where Ava and Deacon are! I have to go pick them up from the Astin room. World War III is about to begin. :

Hawaii has begun! Today at 4-o-clock: Sean and Christine (and the girls), Sherry, Paris, Nicole, Nicky, Jessica, Amber, Russell, Elijah, Mary Kate, Hannah, Kate Bosworth and more came to my house. We all got into a big big limo which drove us to the airport. We are taking this really neat jet to Hawaii that I was able to rent. We boarded at 6:00 and took off. The plane is so neat, the kids are in the back playing and I am sitting next to Paris (and near Russell!!!) who fell asleep. Hahaha. Maybe I'll paint her face or something. The plane has anything a person could want. You can even swim while in the air! ( I decided not to but others are). Well we get to Hawaii later, and when we check in and everything, I'll update then. So far I am going to... :
Friday - Arrival day. I plan to take the kids to the beach (their nanny came along and she may take care of the Astin kids ). While the kids play, I am going to try and surf.
Saturday - Second day. I'm going snorkeling. The nanny is taking the kids to the local aquarium to see the fish!
Sunday - Third day. I'm going sailing. The kids are coming with me. I've also booked spa appointments for all of the ladies and massages for the guys. :-)
Monday - Fly home. We leave at 6:00 PM, so you can do whatever you want until 4. Meet in the lobby at 4!
