We got a Wii!

For those of you who don't know I have pretty much been a Nintendo addict since the early age of seven.  Before that I have early memories of playing Atari... but not with as much passion... haha.  When the very first Nintendo Entertainment System came out I was immediately hooked on it. Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt etc.   Needless to say I have been happy with my Gamecube the last several years, but have wanted a Wii for a little while now.  They seem a little more active physically than anything I am used to playing,  so I didn't know if I would like that or not.   Seth surprised me this week by randomly saying we were going to get one!  I was so excited!  I had been sick for so long, and we had been house bound with no excitement- so getting a Wii was such a nice change.  The day we bought it I was actually too weak to really play it, but I made our "Mii" characters.  I think they look just like us!  Finally, as I have been feeling better now I have been playing it, and like it a lot. Levi and Seth have been playing too.  Levi is best at tennis.  Yesterday Seth worked up a sweat playing boxing, and both him and I are a little sore from it.  I like it too because it has been so rainy and this helps us to not get cabin fever from being cooped up.  My Gamecube games still work in the Wii, and since the Wii uses wi-fi I can play some games with other friends far away and buy past Nintendo games from past systems right from my T.V.  So what an unexpected blessing.  Beware though because if you come over to my house I'll probably try to get you to make a "Mii" of yourself....

Taking A Break

I have so many things to post, but I have been really busy and not only that- really sick.  I feel miserable, chills and feverish and spent all day on the couch... so stay tuned, I will post again someday!
