Exciting times around here at the Hull house.
We had a low key wiikend.
And by low key, this is what I mean:
We hung out with good friends at their house on Friday night. They served us adults a yummy dinner and the kids had pizza, which they all thought was yummy too! Then we played Wii.
Saturday morning Cooper had a soccer game. He scored 12 goals. Yep, 12. Then we came home and played Wii.
Saturday evening the boys and I were getting ready to head over to some other friends house to babysit their kids and play more Wii. I was reaching down to turn off our Wii and my back went out. OUCH! I have a recurring back injury that makes itself known at the least opportune times. But the show must go on and so we went to babysit and play Wii.
Saturday night I slept on the living room floor, and only slept because my good friend “nidociv” (spelled backwards to keep the weirdos away!) was in my system.
Sunday morning there was no way I was going to be able to get to church and sit for an hour and a half without the use of my above mentioned good friend. And since he makes me very drowsy, there was no use going, so I stayed home and slept.
After getting home, the boys played more Wii. Then I kicked them out to play outside, in the sunshine, because the sun don’t shine here all that often. They then proceeded to tromp in the front door every fifteen minutes begging to come in and play the Wii. After nearly an hour of that I told them that if they came in again before 4pm for anything other than the potty, I was going to sell the Wii. That was an idle threat, but it worked.
I then decided to try out the Wii Fit that we had bought on Friday. After about 30 minutes of yoga, I discovered that my back had loosened up and was feeling a little bit better. Another reason to play the Wii.
Then some friends came over for dinner and the kids proceeded to play the Wii for the next three hours. They did have to take turns because we have only two controllers and there was four kids…………
Monday dawned bright and new and brought with it more Wii playing. I was first, with more yoga. It helped again. My back felt a bit better (until I pushed a full shopping cart around the grocery store). The boys played a little Wii while I prepared my two week meal plan and grocery list.
After the grocery store guess what we did?
Yep, more Wii. but just a little. There was homework to be done.
Then the weekend was over, but not before a little…………..
Wrestling with DAD!
(you thought I was going to say Wii!)
Now, I know that you all think that all we did is play Wii all weekend.
That’s not completely true.
You see, when I wasn’t playing Wii or passed out on the floor from the pain meds, I was over at the Stretch Marks Blog watching this:
I wonder if there is a Wii game that can teach me to dance like that.
(when my back feels better!)
PS. Please disregard my previous post about my children’s favorite Christmas gifts. Who was I kidding?
