Who would’ve thought that a video game would get me to start being productive?

My husband has known I’ve been paralyzed lately. I have had no desire to do anything at all. In an attempt to try and get me out of my funk, he ordered me a Nintendo 3DS XL with Animal Crossing loaded onto it.

A whole new world has opened up for me.

I knew it was going to be delivered yesterday. I got up early, had breakfast and got myself put together. I went grocery shopping…threw together some dinner in the crock pot as well as putting together a salad. I decided to take one of my shawls and block it. I did some cleaning. I even emailed a few friends to set up a lunch.

Yes people, as ridiculous as it sounds, I had a reason to get stuff done…and that reason was a VIDEO GAME.

Around 3 p.m. the UPS guy showed up with my package. I thanked him excitedly and ripped that box open. Crap. I forgot I had to charge it. I took that time to wind three balls of yarn for a new shawl and pick the twins up from summer camp.

Then we got home and things got REAL. An evening of me and both kids sprawled out on the floor watching as I caught fireflies, talked to townspeople and was stung by bees multiple times. I played that thing until the battery had no more juice. I plugged it in to charge and cast on a brand new shawl.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some knitting to do while I wait for Nook’s Real Estate office to open…
