Your kind thoughts and wishes for me, mean so much.
Russ had me in tears.
You are all so kind and wonderful... made my day, which otherwise has been a quiet one. Just trying to rest up for the week ahead.
Hubby had what I like to call a brain fart on Friday night.
My mom's friend Mary had given the kids $50 each, because she had been so ill over the last year, and she had missed seeing the kids for holidays and birthdays. Silly really, but you have to know Mary to know, there was no stopping her from doing this.
So, Hubby's grand idea was that the kids pitch all that money in to buy something, we pay the balance as Hammer's birthday gift.
What was that something you ask?
Pronounced 'Wee' like, we swing the controllers around like maniacs and try to not hurt each other or break things while playing. Ugh.
The original 'plan' was no Wii until the basement was finished. But, thanks to water damage, and lack of funds for the proper waterproofing, that may be longer away than the original plan.
And, thanks to funds being tight, there is no vacation this year other than going to my cousin's wedding in Indianapolis.
So, that basically made Hubby feel guilty, turned him a bit soft, and there you have the result. A Wii.
Hubby set it up last night, after we came home from the barbecue.
The kids LOVE it.
I am still developing my opinion of the game. I will let you know.
So far, it seems okay. The kids actually get a workout while playing. No broken glass yet, only one accidental injury. I am still not 100% sure yet though. lol
Hubby seems to love it as much as the kids.
Men and boys... the toys grow with them.
