Good morning. I just had to do my daily check in before I start my day. I should be getting a couple more DVDs in the mail today. I wonder how long it will take my husband to notice just how many I'm accumulating :lol: I did a Tahitian Cardio DVD the other day. Holy cow! I thought my thighs would spontaneously combust from burning so much. :D

Quick post from me too. Just to let everyone know I'm alive and still around.
Michelle-TOM is here too. I got a couple extra pounds on me right now too. I'm hoping it takes a hike before my weigh in on Sunday. I'll be drinking water like crazy...
OKay...i'm going to relax for a bit. First, Nicole has to have a bath. :(
03-03-2005, 11:48 PM
So I got my 40 minutes of exercise in and TAylor was dancing as I was using the gazelle just as I'm about to go get in the shower for work she falls and hit her face on the hearth of our fireplace :( She couldn't walk for the first few minutes after and she immediately had a huge black bump on her eye so I took her to the ER and they said had it been just a centimeter more back she would have had some pretty major damage. So tonight we have to wake her up every two hours and make sure she's not confused and still knows our names and stuff. What a night! Needless to say I was late for work only 15 minutes though but still. I'm gonna leave early tonight to be home with her and take care of her.
Have a good night!

Michelle-Poor little munchkin. I sure hope she's okay and doesn't have a concussion. Accidents sure happen fast huh? Well hope you're okay and she's okay. I remember smacking Tiana in the head with my Blazer's door and she was laid out flat on her back in the parking lot...I keep screaming her name and she didn't answer. Finally after a couple of minutes, she said "ouch". That was one of those long nights too. Saying a little prayer for Taylor.
