  1. You forgot the Inverted Super Advanced Press Stress: Do a hand stand on your Pretendo and then do inverted push-ups. A sure fire balance improver and stress reliever!

  2. So, just for the record, I did go out before midnight to the Wal-Mart SuperCenter on the Wii Fit release date to stand in line for a Wii Fit, and Nichelle now has her “real” Mother’s Day gift.

    And, yes, we love it. It’s even better than we imagined.

  3. He heee. Thanks for the laugh.

    I’m not ready for the Advanced Balance exercise. Fortunately we don’t have any freeways here in New England. Only highways. :-0
