Wii Junkie

Have you played the new Wii game? I am a total junkie. My sister Michelle got one for Christmas and I am addicted. She left it at my parents house on Tuesday (because she was up here and we were playing it and she is coming back on Sunday) and since then I have been glued to that thing. On Tuesday I paced myself and only played for like 2 1/2 hours. On Wednesday I played about 4 hours. Today I woke up with sore arms, and then played about 4 hours. I can't stop. It's like a drug or something. I didn't grow up with video games, so this is all very new and exciting. Honestly I think I need help, I love that thing! If you have not played, it is super fun. I love to golf, play baseball, and bowl. Oh technology - it's a wonderful thing. I'll never rent stinky bowling shoes again, I'll just visit Michelle.
p.s. Seriously I am so sore from playing. You wouldn't think you would be that sore, but man I can barely lift my arms. Talk about a good arm work-out.

Les Miserable

Last night for mutual we went and saw
Les Miserable. The local high school, Northridge High, put it on. I know what you're thinking, a high school doing Les Miserable?, well, let me tell you, it was really good. As far as small stage productions go, this was the best I have ever seen. The voices were amazing, these kids can really sing. I was most impressed with the boys. There were so many boys that could actually sing and
sound good. The girls were good too, but I expected that. If you live in the area I would recommend seeing this. It is running through this week only. They have shows on Thurs, Fri, and two on Sat. It was excellente!

Snow Days

So, it's winter time and that usually means snow, however, it does not mean 2 feet of snow in one day. It started snowing last night and is still snowing (it's almost 4pm). We have shoveled our driveway twice today and each time it was more that a foot of snow. It is crazy! I love the snow, but give me a break. I think we might be out of the draught in Utah after this storm. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
