    Jeanie, welcome back! Hope all is well Yea, so I'm moved in, but I have so many boxes to still unpack. I'm still without shelving, tv stand and a computer desk, so all the little things have no home yet. I'm just so picky when it comes to furniture.


    Right now I'm obsessing over my Google TV!! It's amazing.. there's even a NetaPorter Fashion Channel where I can watch and shop fashion videos and runway clips.

    Well, I guess everyone liked Mr BRS's documentary. He gave his presentation in class today. He said a girl was shouting NO! at the part where the giant syringe was going for Leopold.

    ^^^ I will have to ask Mr BRS. We just burned it to a DVD, but I can see if I can get it on youtube.

    This would be my thing with it. Like, do I not have kids because they might get it? I think my mom feels selfish for having kids because she could have it, but like I told her, it's not something she even thought about back then. She didn't have a relationship with her dad (i don't really know the details because she never talked about it), so I'm not sure she even knew he had it when she had my sister and I. I guess the only thing that is scary about it is that people don't tend to live until they're 80 or 90, which to me seems like a full life. I don't want to be 70, with dementia, because ultimately that's what happens to you. But my mom will be 60 in February and honestly she doesn't show any signs of it. So I guess it's just a wait and see.

Even though there is no cure, there is talk of treatments that help alleviate the symptoms. I don't know anyone that has it, but I remember thinking in class how awful it would be knowing there is a possibility but not knowing for sure. What's sad is that people don't find out they have it until after they have already had children. Sorry, I'm probably not helping very much. I hope you find out that your mom doesn't have it, both for her and for you as well! You'll have to let us know when you find out!

    I wasn't meaning that you shouldn't have kids. I just think it is sad because people find out later in life and then they are faced with the possibility that they had passed it on to the children they had. If you know that you have the gene though, then you can make decisions based on that rather than finding out later on down the road and wishing you had done things differently. If you decide to have kids and you have it, there is the option to have prenatal genetic testing done to determine whether or not the baby has it.
    You say your mom is 60 though? That is pretty late to develop symptoms. Perhaps it is something else. And I agree with you about the dementia part. You wouldn't want to live to an old age if those last years of your life are not quality ones. My grandma had Alzheimer's and I remember how hard it was for my mom seeing her like that.
    I hope everything turns out okay with your mom and for you as well. I think the waiting and not knowing is the worst part.

    Wow, sure it quiet around here. If it wasn't December, I would have sworn I heard crickets chirping.
    I'm working on a proposal that is due Monday, but I'm thinking I want to go get something to eat. My stomach is growling.

    Lol I always wait until he gets home to make dinner. I feel like I should be starting dinner when he walks in the door so that he doesn't have to wait too long. He works hard all day so I feel like her deserves a nice "meal" not too long after he gets back. I'm no 50's housewife, but it's the one thing I do
