I just bought WiiFit this evening. I’ve been lusting over it for some time now… and it’s really the only reason I’ve felt comfortable with the boy blowing so much money on the Wii and Wii accessories… because I knew my time would come.

I took an impromtu trip to Target this evening. The boy was at our volleyball game but I wasn’t feeling much up to going. I’m not a fan of volleyball, really. Anywho, bedecked in old college pajamas, I decided it was a good idea to wander the Target. And oh, was it ever.

I haven’t been much impressed with Target’s clothes lately. They DO have a killer bra section right now – good, quality (read: padded) bras for $9.99 or $12.99. But I just bought a new bra last week when Victoria’s Secret sent me an email about a stupid 75% off sale. (Okay, it was a $13 bra, I didn’t splurge that much.) So I passed up the clothes and the underwear, checked out the shoes ($9 boots! bought ’em!) and checked out the electronics. Lo and behold, Target had three Wiis and four WiiFits.


It took us two weekends in two states to find our Wii. And here I just stumbled across the Mecca of Wiiness? Badass.

So I scooped it up and practically ran to the check out, giddy with what my night now had in store for me. Or should I say… what my night had in sore for me…

I got it synched and loaded and ready to go aaaand I did my evaluation. I was expecting a bodacious WiiFit age. You see, my Wii Sports Fitness age is 69. I’m NOT coordinated. So I cringed while WiiFit calculated my age. And it turns out I’m only 20. No joke, you guys, I hollered when I saw that.

I’m going to chalk it up to the fact I did yoga regularly for about two years until giving it up about a year ago. (No time.) I have good balance, so my trainer says… Anyways, it feels good to be active and have positive reinforcement. You know, until I get on the balance board one day and my trainer says, “Whoa, lay off the deep dish pizza, lard ass!”

The boy is home. Have to show him my new purchase!!  (And don’t worry, I’ll let you know what HIS WiiFit age is, too!)

In other news, here are some phrases I’ve been dying to say recently that have made it into my every day vernacular: crocodile tears, shenanigans, that’s how I do
