Wii Update

Yes, as a matter of fact, I DO think you give a crap, so deal with it!

OK, so I immediately opened the box to set up the system, then realized that I wanted to get the Wii Fit so I could use it ASAP. I had something to return to WalMart, so I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone. Unfortunately, they were out of Wii Fit. No problem, on to the next store. The Wii actually shipped to me from Game Stop, even though I bought it through Barnes and Noble, so I figured I'd go there. There's a Game Stop literally walking distance from house. (On a side note, I had actually planned to eventually buy my Wii from there, but then I was blessed with those gift cards.) I walked in, and the very friendly clerk at the counter asked what he could help me with, and I asked if they had any Wii Fits. Oh, happy day, they had one left! Yay! I also ended up picking up some extra controllers and a game, so my little excursion was a bit more expensive than I had planned, but at that point, I didn't even care. I was so excited about getting home and setting up my system, that he could have sold me the world.

I took everything out of the boxes and set up the Wii unit and the Fit board. It would have taken half the time if I had actually read the damn book correctly, but whatever! I ended up trying the yoga training, and did about 30 minutes of it before I had to stop. I got to a pose I just could NOT do (The Tree) so I decided to take a break. I'm dying to go back downstairs and try something else, but I'm so torn because I'm also trying to watch Dancing with the Stars. (Yeah, I'm a reality show loser, what of it?!)

I think after the news, I'll head back down and try something else. I get to sleep in tomorrow morning because Stud went to his dad's tonight, and CSJ will be driving him to school in the morning. Plus, tomorrow is Report Card Pick-Up Day (CPS's parent/teacher conferences) which means we work 12-6 tomorrow. So, I can stay up late playing. Oo, wait!! I can play Wii tomorrow morning, too! Whoopie!! OK, I really need to get a life, huh?

Of Course We Care! You go girl!

And I can't find your email or reply to your comment on my blog, so "how I found him" is through sitemeter. He's dumb enough to check from work which is a GIANT red flag to me.

We just got the wii last weekend! That yoga crap is HARD!! I love the skiing and snowboarding and the aerobics steps. But today, randomly the left step stopped working. I don't know why. Oh and I did the hoola hoop over the weekend and blew out my knee. That one is hard on the knees so be careful!

The Wii is a cool thing. :) Now you just need to get Guitar Hero. That's what is the hit at our house. Although we don't have the Wii Fit, so I can't compare. Have fun with it!

I will now understand if we don't hear from you for some time...Wii is addictive. You HAVE to try Guitar Hero. Oh, and the tennis games are amazing! Have fun!!!
