(it does look like a set of scales...)
on our trip home from the movie friday night, barrett and i were discussing the new wii fitness that had just recently been released. barrett told me his mother was wanting to buy it. i told him that if she found two to buy two and that i would repay her (they are very hard to find as they are flying off the shelves as fast as stores are stocking them).
anyway, my little rett called last night at around 7pm to let me know that walmart had gotten 3 of them in and that they were going to buy one of the three. i, of course had just gotten out of the shower, had wet hair, and couldn't leave right then.
"john, i know what you can get me for my birthday..." i said very sweetly.
"what???" he asked.
"well, they have 2 wii fitness games at walmart," i replied.
"a wii fitness!!! what is that???" he inquired.
"it's a new, low-impact exercising game, wii has just released," i said.
"oh." he stiffly lowered himself into his chair-and-a-half while rubbing his sore bottom.
"and, if you go right now, you can probably get me one..." i continued.
"are you serious???" he said looking over his shoulder at me.
"yeah, if you don't go now, they will be gone..." i continued (smiling and batting my kelly greens).
to my surprise (not really), he stood, checked his back pocket for his checkbook (or was rubbing his aching arse, HA!!!), and said he'd be back in a few minutes.
about 20 minutes later, i heard hannah squeal from the den then call for katherine. katherine had just come from my shower. she and i went into the kitchen to see about what hannah was squealing. there stood john grinning like the cheshire cat holding the wii fit box upright on the counter for all to see.
"it was the last one!!!" he exclaimed victoriously (obviously feeling quite proud of his feat)... the sales lady asked me if i was the one who called to say i was an hour away on my way to get it," he continued. "i told her it MIGHT have been you:D" he told the sales lady a fib!!! BRILLIANT!!!
(but, it WAS first come first served, and my boy WAS first on the scene...)
"HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, DEAR!!!" he said elatedly.
now, for those of you who read me on a daily basis, remember back to mother's day/my anniversary... when katherine said she was sure john had given me my birthday present for my (forgotten) anniversary???
i'm pretty sure she was right...
when john handed me my wii fit, i said to him. "oh, i love it!!! i cannot believe you've been riding around with this in your truck for 5 weeks now:o[)!!!" he just grinned.
i haven't gotten it out of the box yet because i want to start it and my diet at the same time... ahem, today. but, i know it is going to be interesting. i was reading barrett's new blog last night. in it he said the wii fit told him he was fat (which he is NOT/i on the other hand...), it made him upset, and, so he went and ate!!!
lol, pray that when the thing tells me i'm morbidly obese i don't do the same!!! REALLY!!!
love and God's blessings,
