Wiiiiii, That Was Fun!

Its official - I'm a Wii -aholoc.......... Hi, my name's Dawn and I'm an addict.



I, in the past, have been 100% against video games. My hubster has a Playstation 2 and can sit in front of it for hooouuuurrrrrs! He lacks the will to walk away. The kids could be in the back yard bloodied by falling out of a tree or drinking a bottle of Draino and he would never know. Hence the art work on our playroom walls, but thats another post entirely.
With that said, I continue my story.
I bought the dang Wii system yesterday and installed it last night about 2 hours before dinner. HUGE mistake. I thought ok, I have a couple of hours...how long can it take to check it out and play a couple of games. HA Boy was I ever wrong! Dinner was about a half an hour late, thank goodness for Monday leftover night. Who the heck stole the last 2 1/2 hours? Wii did! Oh and instead of getting my sewing done after the girls went to bed. Guess where I was?! Until 1 am!!!
For those of you that own a Wii, did you know about the Wii Shopping Channel? Yeaaahhhh dont go in there. Its the fastest way to download games to play on the system. Imagine this... its 11pm, your hangin out in your comfys and you want a new game to play, voila! Tons of CHEAP fun games right at your fingertips. Most of them are half the price of buying a hard copy in the store. I bought the Brain Challenge... ever play this? You think your smart? ...the sickeningly sweet cartoon chic will smack that thought right out of you.
All I have to say is I WILL NOT end up like my dearest hubby with his Playstation. I vow never to flip the ignore switch when he is talking to me. I promise whole heartedly that I wont let my 2 yo run around in a poo'd dipe for 2 hours and I SWEAR I will feed them...REALLY I do!

In the end this is what I am really thinking.....
ahhhhh I need my fix!!! Its CRACK! Crack I tell you!

Whatever you do, do not buy Guitar Hero! You will spend countless hours playing and driving yourself nuts trying to play the perfect song!

LOL We love our Wii!! did you get the Fit too or just the system? if you ever wanna check out the fit let me know, i'm sure jayden would love teh excuse to play with your girls again. but yes, it's addicting and you can spend hours on it!

Yeah...I was reluctant to cave and buy Wii, b/c I've never been much of a fan of video games and I assumed if we bought it, my husband would be glued to the TV. We decided to buy it as an anniversary present for one another and my gosh is it ever addicting! It's amazing how far video games have come! I desperately want to get Wii Fit...that will be my next investment :)

I am relieved that we don't have a Wii or I would accomplish even less around the house!

Oh my, well if you're addicted to the Wii Fit, that is a GOOD thing right?

Although I prefer my Crack in the form of chocolate. Not so good.

Becca said...

I got my wii for Mother's Day last year and I was immediately hooked! I played tennis obsessively until I went pro (and it turned out to be a good workout). Mario Party is super fun too, although I'm waaaay to competitive, lol.

Alicia said...

So I just had to tell you that my son played with that fish feeder thing for a half hour!! Too funny!
