Monday and a Strange Mother's day gift

This is it...My Mother's Day gift. I have no one else to blame but myself. After discovering that Kerry hadn't discussed Mother's day with the kids, we had a gift buying excursion on Sunday, before our Mother's Day bbq.
Since I have been the recent recipient of a beautiful diamond necklace and a most wonderful camera, we decided that the kids would get me something small.
After what seemed like hours of "What do you want?" from them and "I have everything I've ever wanted" from me(which is corny but true), we ended up in the electronics department of Walmart looking for Shaun's friend, who said "Why don't you get Rayman Raving Rabbids?" Which of course the kids were all for, it's a multi-player game, one I'd never really heard of.
So I turned down an aluminum water bottle, an assortment of cds, the first season of 6teen, scrapbook supplies, ipod and camera accessories and chocolate for an insane, hilarious Wii game. We played it for hours yesterday, my arms hurt, and the kids showed me how to set it up so I can play it when they aren't home. I just might. The thought of beating them at something other than boxing and golf makes my heart happy!
This is definately better than the year I got a water gun.

So today the question on my mind is go to work or play the Wii till noon? It's so tempting. And I think my throat is starting to hurt.

You're so funny and although it sounds like fun I don't think I'd turn down and ipod or scrapbooking supplies, lol Glad you had a good time with your family though. Happy Belated Mother's Day
