I have no point...

But really my husband just got himself a brand new xbox 360....
and I may be here even more often than usual.
Just thought I would share this random thought.
It doesn't belong in venting, nor celebrations.
It just is!!!

Oh yeah, you're gonna be an xbox widow! I have way too many game systems here and there is always a male attached to one of them.

You'd be swimming in sweaters and blankets, Suzi! The kids would be sweating on their way to school in the winter :D

We have 2 consoles and 4 computers.. two PC's and 2 laptops, one for each of us (DH and I). A Wii and a PS2. I love Wii!

I have six computers. I work in the business. I don't want to see ANY of them off hours. Even hate my cell phone.

We have a Wii, an xbox 360 and one son just got a PS3 last weekend for his birthday. Plus all the older systems and DS and PSP. (My sons buy most of the systems and games with their own money.) I personally like the Wii the best - Wii bowling is a blast!!!! But mostly I prefer to sew, knit or read with my free time. Anyway, I'd have to take a number to get to play a video game.

I just pointed this thread out to DW and said "See!!! I'm not as bad as you said I was about this stuff!!!!"

I have 4 laptops, 1 wireless network printer, 1 network drive, and 1 x-box. Now I feel much better about having it all!

Just take the controllers and beat him at his own game. Practice in secret while he's at work and the kids are at school and then, when you are profficient, ask him to show you how to play and then kick his rear!!!! LOL

That works very well actually!! My son couldn't beat me at NASCAR 2004, so he spent a couple of weeks practicing on his own. Next thing I know he was doing bump and runs and kicking my butt!
The worst was the final lap at Darlington, one minute he is in my rear view mirror, the next I am spinning and he passes for the checkered flag.
We were in realistic mode and NASCAR didn't black flag him, so I had to give him credit for that one!

I'm pretty sure he WANTS me to play with him. SO I WONT!!! :)
My b-day is coming up, I may just have to get my giant 22 qt roaster oven.
Maybe I should get it today so I can make my ham in it tomorrow and not worry about heating the side dishes too long....... hmmmmm

Mama I have cleared ALMOST the entire house of anything smaller than a golf ball!
I'm sure I missed something and it will be in an ear next week....
