At long as I get my gym time, it will be ok. <BR> <BR> My Zumba Gold class went very well and I enjoyed tutoring a former student. I made an excellent supper and even no bake oatmeal cookies.

Then our 14 year old dog started barking. She wouldn't go out so I tried to get her to sleep in the bedroom. This didn't work either. Finally I curled up on the couch in the living room with the tv on She went back to sleep, <BR> <BR> Secondly, I hit a deer. Poor thing was dead and splayed across the double yellow line. It was 5:45 am and quite a shock. I tried to avoid it by swerving but the back hooves ripped up the und...

I love my friend so it was a serious labor of love. <BR> <BR> Otherwise, it was a calm day, went for an early walk, went to work, tutored in the afternoon and went to the chiropractor, then tutored some more.
