Life

My uncle was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

This has affected our whole family and we are all consumed by worry for him and his family. There is such a feeling of helplessness, because all we can do is learn about this disease and support him.

And yet life continues on. Nick and I are nearly finished with this fall semester, and as soon as this next week of finals is finished I will be a senior! Finally. Work continues, and the children are all very excited for the holidays, ready for vacation. We are preparing for a family vacation: my family and Nick will be going to Barbados! My brother has joined a new band and performed a few nights ago, and he is looking to further his musical career by investigating music colleges. My parents are remodeling the house and just bought a new TV--a 3D one this time! We are all also doing our Christmas shopping and looking forward to spending time with our family. I will be spending this Christmas with my family instead of Nick's because of Steve's diagnosis.

We are all so busy in our lives, but sometimes life seems to pause. And we continue to worry.

Better yet, the different Rolex diving replica watches sale are starting to have a different character from one another. It used to be that the Submariner and Sea-Dweller replica watches sale were clones to most people’s eyes save for the helium escape valve and the lack of magnifier lens on the Sea-Dweller. Now when you look at a DeepSea Sea-Dweller and rolex replica sale Submariner you can really tell the difference. The case has a few updates as well. It seems like the hands are fattened up even more, which makes for a good look. Rolex has a silly name for it "Maxi-dial." Case size is still medium for the era at about 42mm, but it looks good. On this rolex replica uk two-tone model, the gold accents on the bezel and dial look really nice with the gold center replica watches uk link on the bracelet. All Submariner watches have gold hands and indicators on the face.
