Last weekend, Todd and I had all weekend together. We went out shopping on Saturday to pick up some items for the Christmas Eve guests we have coming to visit, and we went to lunch together.
Sunday, we were lounging around most of the morning. I bought Todd the Nintendo Wii 2 years ago for Christmas. We played it so much the first year and it’s pretty much sat for the past year (since last Christmas.) We use it to stream video from Netflix, but we haven’t played any games.
I asked if he wanted to play with me. It had been so long, I needed to get reacquainted with the controllers, so we started off with bowling. I beat Todd both games we played (he was NOT a happy camper.) I even got the best score I’ve ever gotten on the second game: 249!
Todd was getting frustrated, so I asked if he wanted to play tennis. 2 games of tennis (best of 5.) He won the first one, I won the second.
I don’t know what it is, but every time I play the Wii, I get tennis elbow. My right elbow hurts so bad. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
I would really like to start playing the Wii more. For Christmas, I bought Todd a controller charging station so we never have to worry about switching out batteries in the remotes again. I have so much fun playing games with him, but we rarely ever take the time to do it.
That is going to change in 2011!
