Every year, I get a bonus from work. It’s nothing major – just some extra money because I accomplished my objectives blah blah blah. Well, every year that I have received a bonus, it’s gone towards our property taxes (it’s an amazing coincidence that the bonus comes 10 days before taxes are due). This year, I have been careful with my money and when the bonus came I wanted to treat myself to something special.
I decided to buy a Wii Fit balance board and the Wii Ski and Snowboard game. I’ve never snowboarded a day in my life, but this game makes me want to buy a board! It is awesome! I initially bought the Fit so that I could exercise any day of the week… well! The balance games on the disk are AWESOME!
I do have one complaint… when I put in my weight and height – it told me I was overweight! Um hello… hasn’t it been reading my blog? Doesn’t it know that I am big boned? GAWD Anyway, I am happy to report that I have to loose 5 BMI points (not bad) and about 10 lbs for the Wii Fit (dictator) to stop harrassing me everytime I jump on the board.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go wax my snowboard and head down the mountain!
Of course, I’m using the proverbial Wii. It seems my grandmother is now addicted to Wii bowling. And really, who can blame her? Apparently, my mom has been playing so much wii that her arm hurts. Her arm! She had to get a couple of driving games because she has tennis elbow! I love that my grandma, my mom, and my auntie are playing so nice together!
Brody is very clear when he’s referring to one of them… “Mommy, YOUR grandma is here!” or “Your Auntie Di is here!” and he’ll refer to his grandma as “MY grandma – YOUR mom.” Like I didn’t know or something. He’s the best. And he’s so funny! My fear is that he’s going to come home and kick my butt on the Wii… I think I better start practicing. Brody is not a nice winner.
