We got a Wii

Ok, say the words "I need a Wii" really fast and see what it sounds like. That's why, in the store, my smarty pants husband responds with "The bathroom's right over there". UGH! What I have to put up with. My daughter's teachers will now understand why they're such smart alecks, LOL.

Yeah, we got a Wii. We hadn't bought a new gaming system since the Nintendo 64 came out, so we're just a little behind. Hey, my mom did get the girls a Game Cube at a yard sale for $25, does that count?

Didn't think so.

Anyhow, we got this thing home (while the kids are in school, the parents will play, LOL) and got it all hooked up. OH MY GOSH!!! My body hasn't moved around this much since I waited tables in high school. I was sweating! Game systems aren't supposed to be like this. This thing takes more than just thumbs to play. Hubby loves the bowling and boxing. The girls really kick his tail at boxing, plus they have fun doing it. We'd gotten them a Zone gaming system for Christmas, what a WASTE of money. Ours was on sale for $35 and I wouldn't have paid the original price of $50 for that thing.

Anyhow, here's a few pics of Hubby and C boxing.

She won!!!
Oh, notice the cat on the fish tank in the background? She gets up there to sleep then goes comatose (we call it Coma Kitty). Eventually she falls off the fish tank and hits the floor. Then she gets up and wants to kill whatever's close because she's embarrassed. Goofy cat! TW
