It Takes a Village

It's midterm week and I'm freaking out. The math test, which is open book & open notes, has really been a family affair. Lainie and I worked on it together on Sunday, after Mircea helped me with the first 30 problems (that's right, 30), and then Bill and Marc both helped with some other problems. It is ridiculous. This class is insane. I hate it. Wahhhh!!!

The other class sucks too, but I've been working on taht today and it's actually going ok. We'll see. I'm half-assing it a little too much, but I've stopped caring, which is never good. Last night on the phone I said "Well, this time next year I'll have a Master's degree" and that actually got me excited. I'm going to start introducing myself as "Kate Reed: Master's Degree". You know, maybe I should just pick up Esq...because I can.

Hope everyone is having a good week. Love all the kid videos on everyone's blogs and I'm imploring Marc to do a post on how sweet, cute and completely annoying the fur babies are doing.

Does this scare the crap out of anyone else?

You're a CNN watcher too! I read that this morning and now I'm afraid. I want to go get that preventive medicine, just in case I might come into contact with deepest fear is that somehow I got it and didn't even know I had it. I have to go call my doctor and drill her on what she tests for every year.

It does sound scary, but that percentage seems a bit high - I worked at an OB/GYN office for several years and sure, we would get back pap smear results that were positive for HPV, but it wasn't even close to 50%.
Hmmm... just make sure to have your yearly check-ups ladies! :)
