Brain Age

OK...a little confession here. I have a slightly addictive personality. Let me give you an example. Savannah received a Nintedo DS for Christmas. It came bundled with an accessory pack and the game BRAIN AGE. Have you heard of it? Well I had not so tonight I was checking it out. Not really knowing what I was doing I played the first round and found out my brain age was 72!!!!! YIKES!!!! I really don't feel that old! So, I sat here and played about 5 more rounds...and now my brain age is 52! I am very concerned. Are things going downhill that fast. I mean, I am only 36. I felt like I was tackling each problem quicker and writing each answer faster and faster. The stupid- I mean well meaning teacher on the game said I could possibly need sleep and to eat breakfast in the morning. I don't know if I disliked the fact that it was a man telling me what to do or that he was right...but nevertheless...I shut him down fast!

Seriously speaking though, I'm busy. I don't have much time to apply make-up much less work on my brain age. The games says, just a little time each day will rapidly improve your brain age. Well, it's gonna take a while. Maybe a long while, but I'd like to get my brain age more in line with my real age...before I hit 52 or 72!

I think I would do well to not EVEN take the test! Don't even want to know. :) I want to get caught up on your blog, Gina. Your writings look great and interesting. Can't wait!
