I watched The Notebook too. We wanted to watch a silly girly comedy like Connie & Carla or 13 Going On 30 so we could enjoy our last mindless days of vacation, but the cinema we went to didn't have them, so we watched the next best girly movie... IT'S SO SAD!!!!! Such a sweet little movie. But sad!
I hope I never fade away in old age in a haze of dementia or Alzheimer's. It's scary to think of your mind going before your body. I tend to think that my body will give out before my mind does. Now I really hope so.
