After getting in at almost midnight on Monday, shutting off my cell phone and turning off the ringer to sleep off and on all day on Tuesday…the days have flown by leaving still so much to do and little time to do it. On top of that the Gulf Coast region has to once again prepare for a hurricane “Gustav”. Many have evacuated New Orleans… We, in Baton Rouge, have been put on a tornado watch until the morning of September 2. Which brings me to my travel date of going to Chicago. You probably are wondering why I might travel to Chicago? Well, TO APPEAR ON THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW! My mom and sister are going to go with me (weather permitting). We will do the taping on September 3 for the first show this season premiering on September 8. All of 2008 Olympic medalist have been invited to be on the show. I am sooooo excited. What a once in a life opportunity. Thanks team.

That is it for now… Oh, Please everyone send your prayers up for the Gulf Coast region and all the countries affected by the hurricane.

Blessings to you,

  5. Hello Danielle.

    I’m one of your new fan from Malaysia. I only know about you and your great team from the Olympics recently. Congratulations on winning the silver medal. I feel it is a great accomplishment and I really miss watching you and your team play in the Olympics. Those matches was really thrilling and exciting. I admire your fighting spirit and strong determination. Hopefully I can watch you play on tv more often. Till then, take care and all the best!
