Wii Weight

The threat of snow for the next 4 days had us packing up and heading home from Nova Scotia early. Even though our trip to the Annapolis Valley was short, we had a blast. My sister and hubby got a Wii and Wiifit Plus and we had the Wii analyze us for fitness and wii tried all kinds of fun fitness games/exercises. After only 1 day, the Wii reported that I lost .4 of a kg. The Wii did advise me not to get to excited since my initial weigh in was at night, and they recommended that weighing in at the same time every day would be the best way to gauge weight loss. So I had to wait another 10 hours. Hmm...

That reminds me, it's New Years Eve. I wonder if I should be thinking of making a New Years resolution or something. I hadn't given it too much thought until just now!!

While in the valley, my sister took us to her super secret discount store where she gets some amazing stuff. It was soooo fun. It's Bargain Harley's discount store in Berwick. Even my hubby had a fun time loading up on lots of items that were real bargains. We got golf balls, plastic Ziploc style snack bags, hair bands, Christmas wrap, a nightie, a golf club, a foil turkey roaster, knee pads, drill bits, clamps, a casserole dish, coffee candies, crayons, towels, birthday candles, barrettes and other things.

I thought about it, but we didn't bring home a bike, jewelery, lamps, sheet a bissel spotbot, hammers, trailer hitch balls, camouflage wear, Christmas ornaments, giftware and decorations too numerous to even remember. Bargain Harley's might be something like Mardens in Maine. Although, I'm mostly only familiar with Marden's fabric section.

I was looking forward to stopping into Avonport Discount that has name brand fabrics and tons of notions and books, but they were closed for the holidays. You know, I probably didn't need any fabric anyway!
Have a great and Happy New Year Everyone!

That list is hilarious. I don't know if you should be congratulated for what you didn't buy or what! Good thing you only visit every once in awhile...

Hi Gail,
Happy New Year!
Will you ask your sister how many pencil crayons are in the pkg and she can email you the cost, I can compare them to Michael's. Just curious!
