At some point between that last post of ’09 when we bought a Mac and when I started posting again in April, we picked up a Wii. And as anyone that has one will tell you, they are a lot of fun.

Initially, we just stuck with the sports games that came with it, which were still enough fun for the two off us. That was until Cindy bought the Just Dance game, which quickly became her primary use of the Wii as a daily workout regimen. But alas, that came to an end under doctor’s orders to keep all activity to under 120 bpm (beats per minute) while she’s pregnant. And trust me, those last few Hawks games were really pushing that limit. ;)

So the Wii went unused for a month or two until a small discussion about all the media coverage of the Blackhawks bonding as a team during the playoff road trips by holding their own Mario Kart tournaments. Before long, we were looking at spending budgets for the month and then picked up the game and a second steering wheel over the weekend. Or is it wii-kend? :P

Monday night was both of our Kart racing debuts, and we played for about two hours. Needless to say, we had a blast. And now that Cindy is really starting to get over all the morning sickness (knock on wood), it was good to see her have such a good time again.

I’m not exactly sure how much time I personally will be able to play regularly during the week, but I do know that left alone to practice on her own, it won’t be long before Cindy is a force to be reckoned with.
