    DD received a Wii along with several games for Christmas. I've spent so many hours trying to beat her at bowling, skill ball, ping cup, frisbee golf, miniature golf, horseshoes and wakeboarding that I can barely lift my arms today. My right arm is really hurting and my left one isn't far behind. Canoeing has killed both of them. The other games just mutilated the muscles and joints in the right one. This old lady should have known better than to try to outlast an 11 yr old kid. So, is anyone else suffering from Christmas fun?

    No, you'll still quilt, it will just hurt more. LOL From my neck to just above my waist feels like I've been badly beaten. Maybe I'll try the Wii Fit Plus so that I can hurt evenly all over more than anywhere else.

    LOL You poor thing! But look at all the exercise you got! And fun!! About all I can do is sit at the table and play games with the youngest two grands, and I miss doing the more active things with them. Your daughter will have great memories!

    Yeah, that's it, building quilting endurance with the Wii. You think they might come up with a specialized game for that? Practice cutting with the rotary cutter, speed threading of machines, FM quilting, etc.


    hmmm, actually that might be rather fun....

    I've heard that seniors are loving the wii. They can get exercise at home and have fun doing it. They really have fun with the grandkids.
    Some nursing homes are even getting them.
