Whee, my Wii is on the Way!

It seems like Santa really treated people right this Christmas because he brought a lot of people Wiis. Everyone's been talking about how much they love their Wii Fit. When Lisa was here she told us how her mom and grandma are hard to reach on the phone because they are always too busy doing the Wii Fit. So when Jason bought his latest motorcycle I did the usual, "So what do *I* get out of this?" deal and thought that a Wii and Wii Fit sounded fun.

Jason, being ever-considerate and wanting to appease me, ordered a Wii from Best Buy. And he told me and I was like, "Uhhhhh... I kinda thought I should try one out before we actually decided to buy one." Oh well, too late now! The Wii Fit was out of stock, though. It's out of stock everywhere. Well, that's not true; it's in stock at a lot of stores that charge $30+ more than retail, plus shipping! No thank you, losers.

So when I went over to Teri's on Sunday and found out she had a Wii and Wii Fit, I asked if we could check it out. Oh my stinkin' heck!!!! How FUN! I'm super excited about it now. Granted, I will be pulling down the blinds before I hop on the board and start doing yoga (ha ha!), but I can't wait to try everything out and make my Mii and play all the games and try all the workouts. So I googled it again this morning and the very first link that popped up was Amazon, and it said, "Wii Fit in stock now! Free shipping! Order before they sell out again!"

Obviously I hopped right over there and ordered it. Triumphant, I e-mailed Jason that our Wii Fit was on the way! Hooray!

Ten minutes later he called me. Laughing. "Hi Love. I ordered a Wii Fit from Amazon last night after you went to bed when I saw they were back in stock." Ha ha! Luckily Amazon is awesome and I was able to cancel my order without any problems.

I am totally NOT a video game type person. At all. But I am super excited about the Wii Fit!

Actually, you are THE target demographic for video games. Women 25-35 are the fast growing segment of the video game industry.

Ed and I were going to get the Wii for Christmas. I love that it's interactive and I've been wanting to try the Wii Fit. We decided not to spend the money on it, but now you've got me thinking about it again! Have fun and I can't wait to hear more of your thoughts about it!
