It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

I'm getting a Wii

No I didn't say we are getting a Wii. Why? Because I am getting it for me!!! Okay so I may have to share a bit with the kids and the hubby, but only if they are nice to me.

So a couple of months ago when we visited my Dad and step mom, we had the chance to play on their Wii. I also got to experience the Wii Fit. I realized then that this system really was something I wanted to have.

I always thought the concept of the Wii was a great one. I love that you can be active while playing the video games. I think the video games of the world have done a lot to contribute to obesity in children. I never really wanted a game system in my house for a couple of reasons.
1) With five children, I knew the fights would be plentiful regarding who gets to play and when.
2) I hate watching kids sit in front of the TV glued to a game, being inactive
3) I personally think games like this are a waste of time (no offense to anyone who like games)

Last year for Christmas I broke down and allowed a Play Station 2 into our home. Santa brought it and the kids were thrilled. I personally would have preferred the Wii, but with all the hype they were no where to be found.

Anyway after watching and playing the Wii and seeing the Wii Fit, I decided I had to have it. Mike said if I sold some candles from the basement, (I still have quite a bit left from my former business) I could use the money and buy a Wii and Wii fit.

Tonight, I had a candle sale, and I got a little more than I need to buy the Wii, Wii Fit, a couple of games and some extra controllers. I am so excited.

Now I just have to find one :( Every where I look they are sold out. It's not even Christmas!! has a great bundle with the Wii Fit, but they are out of stock. I think I will just wait until they get them in, but I am so excited to get it, I don't know if I can. I can't wait to start my Wii Fit training program. Yea Me!

Hi Michelle,
Do you have a Costco by you? I have seen them there lately, in a bundle. Check there periodically if there is one close! We love Wii!
