OK, I hate to admit it. I have sinned. We got a Wii. In an economic crisis, where I'm crazy mad about cutting all kinds of corners (lights, getting creative with yummy ways to eat bean, growing some of our food, keeping a couple of hens around, keeping heat off, starting the coupon thing) it was my crazy idea.
I know, I know. It doesn't line up with my Mom Advice encouraging women to become frugal let alone with my Proverbs 31 Woman pursuit to cut our budget and be this amazing Proverbs 31 Frugal woman.
This crazy idea came to me on Christmas Eve morning. Like there's really going to be a store that has ONE Wii for the family! I kept thinking that somehow it would offer some fun "family time" and thus the "investment."
The even crazier thing is that my darling hubs went along with it (one can rationalize anything, can't they and Oh, the scarey power of a woman's influence) and found a bit of a deal on Craig's List, loaded up the boisterous boys and headed west to buy this woman a Wii.
Only one major speed bump occurred with the Wii. While two boisterous boys were playing Clone Wars, one little girl got knocked between the eyes with the Wii stick. I've never seen such a scary knot on her forehead. We did call the doctor. All is ok.
I looked up the Wii website and found it amazing that they, too, think it's an investment for the family. (Boy, they'll use anything to sell you.)
They even tell you why you need a Wii!
Wii is not just a gaming console, it's a reason to get together with your friends and family and play today's hottest games. Wii offers legendary Nintendo franchises ....Question:
Do you have a Wii and if so, do you use it? How often? Is a family affair? Is anyone addicted to the Wii in your family? If so, what are your "rules" of usage? What games do you play? Do you use the Wii fit, boxing or yoga programs? If so, is it working if you work it?
