Still...

CarGuy is still in the hospital and getting extremely grouchy about it. I'm doing my best at biting my tongue but sometimes it's too hard and emotions come spilling out. I think I've been in tears a couple times today due to his outbursts at me. I know he wants out of the hospital -- he's not really in any pain so I can't even blame it on that. I try to keep that in mind but being the overly sensitive type I can be makes it hard to hold it together. I think we need to have some basic niceties met even when we aren't where we want to be.

So...my plan tonight after I get back to the apartment? I'm gonna crack open a fuzzy navel wine cooler and then kick some Wii boxing butt!!! Nothing better than beating the heck out of cyber opponents who have no actual arms. Does anyone else find it disturbing that those folks at Nintendo couldn't find it in their programming skills to give these creatures some arms? The WiiFit is even creepier because the trainers never move their lips. Sort of like having a ventriloquist on the screen. Yep...they can give my little Mii an eerily similar curvy shape like mine while they tell me I'm obese but they can't let my trainer actually open his mouth. And I think I heard the little "measuring" person giggle at me when I stepped on the board -- how rude! Anyone have the address where I can file a harassment complaint against my video game?

So...in closing...I don't think I want much! My husband to try and treat me like a person, my boxing opponents to have arms, and my trainer to move his lips. Common courtesy people, common courtesy! Now...where is that drink I ordered?!? Nurse!!

I gotta tell you that I am pretty annoyed wit that Wii telling me I a obese.. and now I am going to look really close for moving lips!

Oh, also remember.. Car Guy.. well he is a guy. As my sis says..water off a ducks back.

PS.. I heard that the Wii they sell in Japan just flat out says "your fat"! Rude little bugger!

So sorry, and hope your drink and kicking some Wii butt helped you! I never noticed about the lips not moving, I guess that shows you how much I have been using it, ha ha.

I will pray that Car guy has some patience and doesn't take his frustrations about the hospital out on you!

Ugh, I'm so sorry that y'all are still stuck there :( I know that you just want to be supportive and loving for CarGuy... but he's having a hard time and not always making it easy on you :/
Meanwhile, I know what you mean about the Wii! The first time I got weighed by a Wii Fit, I was with my sister and she was all, "oh, I'm sure you'll be fine, there's no way you're overweight". Yeah, guess who got giggled at by the mean little Wii weigher? Anyway...
I'm still praying for you two. I'll be keeping peace and joy at the top of that list.

I have been thinking of and praying for you and Carguy! I'll pray specifically that his bedside manner freshens up! What a frustrating situation for the both of you.

My kids always ask me where the mii's arms are LOL. And, the mii legs when they play other games. I'm annoyed because wii tells me I play tennis like a 77 year old. Geesh. Seriously?
