Coach Wise would be SO proud...

So, for the past week or so, it has been Wii mania around our house! Matt decided to trade in his Play Station 3 for a Wii...he wanted something that we would do together! I protested at first, (I hated for him to give up his PS3) but he was adamant! ... I have to admit that I was excited when he brought it home. We played right away...created our Mii's, bowled, played tennis, baseball, boxing, and golf! We actually worked up a little bit of a sweat, and I was sore the next day from my tennis skills! ...
Anyway, last night, we decided it was time to play a round of tennis. I'm getting better, therefore more competitive! We were in game 3 of 5 and were tied 2 games to 2. I was returning his crazy serves and playing the net like a champ! I was feeling confident that this could be my chance to beat him! About that time, his back man hit a deep ball to my back girl, and I got my awesome two-handed backhand ready! (It always WAS my strongest shot!) As I swung, I could tell it was going to be a good one and continued with my follow through...then, it happened...I didn't completely follow through, because my controller hit my husband square in the face! He immediately dropped down...and was holding his eye! As he took his hand away, he laughed and, though I felt horrible, I laughed too! I could tell it was a little swollen. When he went to the mirror, he noticed a little bloody spot in his eye and the area around his eye starting to puff up a little more! ...
So, when we went to bed last night, we wondered what it would look like this morning! As soon as he woke up, he went to the mirror and found this...

Now, it's not too horrible, but it is a black eye! A black eye that he got from his wife!...while playing Wii!!! When he was leaving for work, I asked him if he had a good story to tell...and he reminded me that the truth was good enough! ...

I'm so sorry, Matt! Thanks for not being mad at me and for taking it like a man!!! :) I love you!

That is priceless! We love our Wii and have had a couple of injuries and a near miss hit of the tv as a friend let go of the controller mid swing...he wasn't wearing his wrist strap. I'm glad you guys got a Wii. They are so much fun and something the whole family can play together. I like that you don't just sit down and stare at a screen the whole time.
