finding one! we weren't willing to camp outside best buy on the off chance that a delivery MIGHT occur, and we MAY get an OPPORTUNITY to purchase one. no. were we willing to spend sleepless nights with black bags under our eyes bidding for one on ebay? again, no. but whenever we are in or near a big box store, we check the electronics department for the elusive console.
the kids and i needed to run some errands at walmart today-- toothpaste and lactaid pills being the MAIN needs-- and thought we'd check the locked glass display case on the off-chance that they'd gotten a shipment since monday when t was there.
imagine my surprise when i saw a fully stocked shelf! i did a double take, then called t. "is this for REAL?" i asked as i read the exterior of the box for him. "sounds like it!" he said. so to the delighted squeals of my chil'ren (no longer thinking i'm the meanest hag on the planet) i bought the darn thing.
we carefully unplugged the xbox 360, and replaced it with the wii.
they've been bowling ever since.
thank GOODNESS, because it's 95 degrees outside.
