Yippee!

Currently Reading: Still on Marvella and Best Friends. Haven't purchased the e-book(s) yet.

I have finally found a PS2 game for me! And no, it's not Jeopardy!. It's Rock Band, and comes with a cute, four-pad, simulated trap set! With the toddler in front of me, we did the easy demo to 'Wanted: Dead or Alive", and I was in heaven.

Until the toddler got bored and ran off to join his dad, leaving me feeling foolish with my rusty drum skills in the middle of the aisle at Walmart.

I don't know how much the game costs, or even the cost of the contraption. But I want it...apparantly, you can also hook up the 'Guitar Hero' guitar and play in tandem. Put my daughter on the guitar, myself on drums, and my oldest on the karaoke machine...we'll have a blast!

If I can get the kids to cooperate. If not, Dakota and I can jam!

It's been raining off and on today, with temps in the high 50's/low 60's. And tomorrow we're supposed to have a high of twenty and snow. Yuck. Damn groundhog...couldn't they have brought him out in the SHADE on Saturday? Or at least when the sun was behind a cloud? Or is it simply a matter of letting the winter-lovers having their turn at six weeks of more cold and ice? Lent came early; why not Spring?

And speaking of Lent beginning tomorrow...I'm giving up ice cream. I've tried giving up sex, but unfortunately that was only an option 4 years ago. But since it was medically directed, it didn't count, right? So why does my hubby refuse to go along with it? It's for both of us...and he just complained about how regular 'activity' will keep his prostate healthy, and how I want it to stay healthy, don't I? So I guess I'll have to stick with having no ice cream until after Easter....sigh...

My kids want Rock Band in a big bad way.

I told my husband I was giving up sex for lent. He laughed at me.

Can't you just give up something yucky like brussel srouts?

Can't give up what I don't eat, ha ha...

Hey...there's an idea...I'll give up Tim-Tams, hahahaha...

I can't think of a single good reason why giving up sex for Lent is a great idea. Nope.

My oldest is soooooooo desperate for Rock Band. I keep telling him to save his money.

Me too. I found out it costs $169 for the contraption and only $50 for the game. Maybe next Christmas?
