Sis and I found one at Wal-Mart on Friday and Monk set it up Saturday night.
I now have tennis elbow.
No kidding. I have swung that stupid remote so hard that my elbow and shoulder are now killing me. And I still couldn't beat the 8 year old! I was also whupped by the 6 year old at bowling, but we won't talk about that.
The game is seriously addicting. It also brings out the HIGHLY competitive side of ALL of us. It was bad enough that Monk and I used to stay up after the kids had gone to bed and play Mario Cart on the Nintendo 64, competing until all hours of the night. But now? Now the aggression has come out.
Sunday night I was in the kitchen, doing something domestic I'm sure, when I hear my lovely golden haired Liv yelling,
"Punch her in the head! Punch her in the head!"
Do y'all suppose the Proverbs 31 woman would have let her daughters play Wii Boxing?
At any rate, addictive tendencies aside, I am impressed with the system as a whole. It forces
As evidenced by the fact that I can already nurse the baby and play a game of tennis at the same time. Seriously.
Now for my literal Big Hair update.
Okay, so I'm still loving my sassy new red hair. However, despite it's lovely shade of crimson and good thorough cut....my hair is still Big.
I have finally begun my season of postpartum molting and within a few weeks will be pulling clumps of hair out of my drain the size of small rodents. That is if rodents had red curly hair.
These days I like to straighten my hair because 1. it calms down the "bigness" of it. And 2. I don't have to wash it near as often when it's straight because it doesn't look like a Chia Pet experiment gone bad.
If I wash my hair and then dry it, the straightening process is not nearly as tedious if I were to let it dry naturally. On a good day it takes about 1 hour for me to straighten my hair with the flat iron. If I dry it first (straightening with a brush as I dry) then I can let my hair "rest" for a while and then straightening with the flat iron becomes much easier and a little faster.
I bet y'all didn't realize my hair was so complicated, huh? And boring too.
Anyway, Saturday I did the whole wash and dry process with the intention of straightening my hair later that evening. Little did I know that after I dried it that I would be instantaneously sent straight back to the late 70's.
(I realize I am "dating" myself here....stay with me now)
I'm not sure how many of y'all watched Saturday Night Live back then. Heck, a lot of you weren't even born I'm sure! BUT....if you have ever been a fan of SNL you might remember that Gilda Radner created a classic character on there that will forever go down in SNL history.
Let me introduce you to....
And then there's me....
Her demented little sister. AFTER her hair had calmed down a little.
Now if that's not enough to make you drop to your knees and thank the good Lord for the hair he gave you then I'm not sure what is!
