Just Dance

Jimmy started school again this semester. He only is taking 1 class, but on Tuesday nights he is gone from 6 to 10 pm. On Wednesday nights he is gone from 7 to 9 ish doing stuff with the youth in our church.

Since Brynlee goes to bed by 8pm every night, I find myself on these nights with some free time. Ah yes, the much desired free time. Once I get the baby in bed, my mind starts to race frantically as I consider all the options of what I could do. I could read, I could bake, I could clean, I could work out (eh...probably not). The possibilities are endless! What to do?? For that few hours the world is my oyster.

I ordered a new game for the Wii, Just Dance 2. I've never played Just Dance 1, but thought it looked fun. On Tuesday this week, I though I'd give it a spin. I'm not much of a video gamer (there is one person in my house who plays enough for all of us :) ) but it didn't look like rocket science.

I usually play a new game for the first time with Jimmy so he can explain how to do it. He just automatically knows how to play all these games some how. It must be a perk of all his experience. Anyhow I turned it on and somehow got a neon colored figure to appear. She started rocking out, and I tried to rock out with her. At one point I think I was just flinging the Wii remote all around trying to get points for my moves. I'm not sure how good my " dancing" looked at that point. My score looked even worse.

After a few songs, I got the idea down. I think. I'm still not sure how you score points or how I manage to do some moves incorrectly and some moves perfect. Who knows? I do find it funny that the song I scored the most points on was " Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" by Wham. I guess I followed the neon colored man doing crazy 80's moves (and boy are they crazy) pretty well on that one. " Jump" by Kris Kross was a complete disaster. The only thing jumping was my score, to an all time low on that song. All and all it was pretty fun. Nothing like that much desired alone time to dance like a nut in your living room by yourself! :)

I wish I had a wii. I would love a game like that. Charlotte likes to dance with me so I pop up itunes and we dance around a lot while I clean. I probably look pretty funny but we have fun!
