Today after we returned home from church I was getting lunch ready and tried to separate frozen burgers with a steak knife - NOT GOOD! I have never seen so much blood - the palm of my hand looked like a red fountain. I screamed for my hubby and off we went to the E.R.. My poor kids, my son (5) kept asking if I was ok, and my daughter (6) wouldn't talk or look at me. She told me later that her heart was 'beeping' the whole time.

2 hours and 4 stitches later (3 outside and 1 in to fix the vein I cut - ewwww!) I am home with a very sore hand.

Otherwise it's been a nice weekend. My son had his first official karate class on Saturday - he did great (no whining like he did at the trial class). He participated the whole time, and he actually looks like he may have a knack for it - who knows? We went through some open houses later in the day Saturday. We are thinking of moving to a bigger house - our starter home is outgrowing our little family.

As for the exercise - I basically dropped the ball since Wednesday - I don't know why but I reverted into my old lazy habits!!! NOT GOOD. This coming week will be better! So, I don't think that I will reach my goal at the scale tomorrow - I think I might get a STS.

Ouch is right! Next time promise to just defrost them in the microwave first??

Do you need a butt kicking?? I *double dog* dare you to get at least 30 mins of exercise in every day this week!

You're so brave. I would have stayed home in denial, bleeding to death. I'll join in the 30min/day ready?

Jen! Ow! You silly nana! My heart did an awwww moment when you said your daughter told you her heart was "beeping" - kids get so scared when their parents are hurt.

I hope it heals quickly and no infection etc.
