Raise your hand if... your daughter won a Nintendo Wii today through a local radio station, and your house is loud as heck right now! Me too!

Yup, middle daughter got a call today that she'd won a Wii after entering a contest at a radio station. She was thrilled!! We've never owned one of these game systems, too much money thankyouverymuch, so this is a real treat.

Right now, even though it's almost eleven p.m., the kids are frolicing and romping and cheering like crazy! And by "kids", I also mean my husband--he's already wondering if they make a fishing game. He stood up to bowl and the poor dog looked up at him as if to say..."What the hell is going on here? This is about the time we hit the hay, old man."

(PS. Yes, that is a tongue ring and no, I don't like it.)

To say we are easily amused is an understatement...they will probably be up for hours now. Sheesh...this mama needs her beauty rest! 'Nite all. :)


  1. how exciting!
    we have a house full of Wii lovers over here, too....including the BIG kids ;)

    miss ya, carol

  2. Hi Carol---

    How much fun?? Are you surviving? We don't have the Wii but we have played it at friend's
    houses and our adaptive PE teacher uses in gym class--the kids love it!
    Have a great day!


  3. We're all having fun with this crazy contraption. I love how every once in awhile, the game will tell you to "take a break" and it shows an open window, like it wants you to go outside for a little bit. :)

  4. That's too funny! I bet your daughter was just thrilled! It's so exciting to win something!

  5. Hi Carol--
    Just wanted to let you know
    that I "tagged" you on my blog---
    please come by and pick it up.
    It's fun.


  6. Carol, it's so neat that she actually won it! She must be thrilled. Hope that you survive the insanity.....
