Last night at the home of Blogospeer and Debily, we opened my first present (I fergit which was xmas and which was birthday), a black t-shirt with four san-serif characters, and it expressed perfectly about my feelings about the beginning of my 40th year.
The actual birthday day part was quite pleasant. I spoke on the phone with my parents and all of my siblings. I slept in. I ate at my favorite restaurant (Original Pancake House – Plano) and had a yummy breakfast. Spent money on Wii games at Target. Ate a yummy supper of spaghetti with my family. Played Wii Play with the family.
Time well spent
I gotta admit, I was about as excited as the kids.Â I knew about it for months, its only that life’s been soooo busy that I haven’t taken it to work to ‘test’ it. 🙂
Grandma Rain was the gracious benefactor, and she included the following games in the take:
- Wii Sports (included, but cool!)
- Sims 2 Castaways
- Madden 2008
- Avatar – The Burning Earth
- Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree
- Super Paper Mario
- Dewy’s Adventure
- Donkey Kong Barrel Blast
I got some of the booksÂ on my list, a Ã¼berkool laptop desk (Ikea Dave),Â shirts and stuff.Â But the highlight was watching the kids open that box.Â The girls are swooning over their new santa deliveredÂ cell-phones, and Dan’s enjoying his MP3, and MJÂ is now a ninja spy with gadgets and weapons.Â MJ’s also the best wii bowler inÂ his age group.Â
