Wii like to travel and more

Wii play in the car! I have heard that there are a lot of fans of the Wii. (Can you believe I said that with a straight face? I don’t know anyone who has played Wii without loving it. In fact, I have a whole set of pictures of a family party at the beach playing the Wii. Stay tuned for links.) I have also read the documents on how to set it up. I was shocked that there was no mention as to how to play this modern miracle of technology in the car.

Now, I know that there is a huge segment of parents who believe that the car is the best place to “communicate” with their children. Ha! When driving from Texas to Florida, I am all about the beauty of technology. And am willing to try anything. Apparently so are my children.

You see a prime example of how my children love technology enough to not care how uncomfortable it is. Now, one of the things I love about the Wii is that it gets you off of you butt and onto your feet to play. However, I also love that the game is so much fun to play that the kids insisted that we unpack it to try to play it in the car. (We took it to Florida for days like these.) So, being the “Please let me listen to my tunes and zone out while I drive this motley crue across county” type of Mom, I agreed.

Let me just share with you the love of my Wii. I heart it. I slept with it one night but Clint said no more of that. He said it was crowded sleeping with my Senseo, my laptop and my Wii. (Can you blame a girl? I love my toys!)

So for anyone who may be wondering, “Is a Wii for me?” Hell yeah, baby! I mean… certainly it should be a considered product to purchase.

Now on to topics beyond technologicalizing my children. (Yes, I do love making up words. Why do you ask?) I have seen a lot of fun entries around the net. Guessing the truth or the lie. Asking me anything and I have to answer it honestly. Paying for you to comment. (Not really on that last one. You have been great! I have heard from my niece AND my coffee neighbor. Tickles me all pink and purple and a little bit of cyan.) What do you want? I mean, I will still write the babble-assing posts, but I want to know if you want to know anything. Do you?

Okay, so it looks like BlogHer might not happen for me. It is at least on hold for a while. After getting a severe punch to the gut financially, I am not going to buy a plane ticket until a week before BlogHer at the soonest. Anyone in DFW want to go to BlogHer and make it a road trip? Anyone between here and Chicago want to get picked up and finish the road trip? Honestly, I had questions about going, but now that I am set on it and am over the moon about friends I know that are going, I want to be there. So, honestly, if you want to road trip it, let me know. I am up for it. (At least I keep trying to tell myself that I am.) Are you?

And here, my friends is yet another pretty picture to keep you loving me and being patient while I play around with my blog.

Me and my amazing husband of 17 years

  1. Love the new look, by the way. Wish I were going to BlogHer (maybe next year? Knock on wood…) and I wish I lived closer; I’d totally do a roadtrip. Good luck finding someone, and thanks for the Wii review. We just might consider it now…

  2. Love the ‘coffee neighbor’ my cheeks got wet. Love the pics, sneak the other 2 in on your next entry. I don’t know anything about BlogHer but hey, you know if the time was right…and I agree with shauna you make the Wii sound really good the boys will love you for it.

  3. so Wii did work in the car? I don’t know a lot about it yet but I’m interested in getting one 🙂

    You’re still in vacation right? I’m turning green.

  4. Wii!! Z and I stayed up to all hours of the night playing Wii. It’s terribly addicting. Now I just have to talk mom into getting one for me. She blames you for introducing it to me. 😀

  5. I can’t speak on the Wii issue, but I can definitely cheer for “technologizing” the kids – ESPECIALLY on road trips! The biggest feature of our new SUV was the DVD/stereo system.

    On our last road trip the kids watched DVDs and played the PS2 in between listening to their iPods, etc. Not ONCE did I witness flying bodies and a riot in the rear-view mirror.

  6. “technologizing” the kids — great term. I can only dream of going to BlogHer this year. If youwere driving in the opposite direction, I could help. Sorry.

  7. I hope you figure out a way to go to BlogHer! It just won’t be the same without you…

  8. I really, REALLY hope you figure out a way to come to Blogher! If I hadn’t already bought train tickets, I would drive down there from Michigan and pick you up myself!

  9. If my mom hadn’t sprung for the plane ticket, I would have gotten you to pick me up in Little Rock. We’d have had a blast. I hope you can make it. I’d love to meet you.
