Remember the little holiday that just passed?
No not New Years.
Shockingly, I haven’t said a word about it yet. That changes now!
We surprised the socks off our kids this year. They were absolutely convinced their totally uncool, cheap-skate parents would never buy them anything amazing. I mean, no chance we would ever purchase a mind mushing, jelly braining video game.
So we bought them a Wii (in red) all the way back in the beginning of November when we happened to have a few extra dollars. Our children are accustomed to our few extra dollars being sucked into the black hole we call a car. If no parts of the car fell off that month, then it is assumed the doctor’s office will get our very last dollar.
I’m not complaining. That’s just the way it is.
So the kids never suspected they would first be blown away by a wrapped surprise under the couch, and then be knocked out cold by their mum (I learned ‘mum’ from Deb @ Loyalist Cottage. Makes me sound more interesting, doesn’t it?).
I’m the only one who can figure out the controls while boxing, so I am the official
heavyweight lightweight champion of the FringeFamily.
I knocked FringeMan out cold with a few well placed shots to the head.
I can nearly hear your applause.
Not only can I box, but I have mean virtual tennis game.
Bowling – 207
Yes I did.
I’m so into these sports games that I don’t want furniture in my living room anymore, and I’m considering painting a tennis court on the floor.
My name is Tricia. I am thirty-five, and I have tennis elbow from my Wii.
I totally want Wii Fit PLUS for my birthday. I’m not sure exactly what the PLUS stands for, but I know it must be something fabulously slimming.
So the fun of Christmas continues in my house. I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow, but right now I shall show you the humiliating photo FringeMan took with his phone early on Christmas morning.
Ask my mother.
Don’t ever think I never show you ‘real’ pictures.
So tell me. What was your favorite Christmas gift?
Oh, ya….I almost forgot to ask.
