Santa was going to bring a Wii. Then he wasn't. Now at the last minute, he decided he wants to.
I don't know what, except for temporary insanity, propelled me to try to find one this morning.
8:30 am Dropped Einey and Meenie off at school
8:50 am Stopped at GameSpot to check and see if they got any Wii's in (wishfull thinking!). There were three people waiting.
9:05 am Went inside. Found out they had a shipment due that morning and they usually arrive around 10 am. Decided to wait - hey I'm the fourth person here, I should be lucky!
9:07 am Moe declares she needs to potty. I initiate a game of I-Spy.
9:30 am Moe is hungry. I pull out a granola bar (not sure when I put it in my purse, but it was there). More people filter in and join the group.
10:00 am Moe is a little antsy. She's wandering around, looking at game boxes, playing the display games.
10:16 am Still no UPS. I decide to wait a bit longer.
10:30 am Moe and I are sitting on the floor coloring.
10:45 am I decide to wait until 11:05 so I can make it back to pick Meenie up.
11:05 am UPS pulls up into the plaza. I wait. I'm not getting this close only to leave.
11:15 am Truck pulls up to the store. Unloads in the back.
11:20 am Store Employee walks out. They have three Wii's.
Did I mention I was fourth in line?
Store employee does tell Moe and I we can come back two other days they are expecting shipments in. Um thanks but no thanks, Moe would probably not behave as well.
11:38 am Arrive at school a tad late to get Meenie.
11:45 am Stop at McDonald's to reward Moe for behaving so well!
It's not that big of a deal, especially since we initially decided to wait. Waiting until later in the year really isn't going to be so bad. Really.
Edit: Day 2 - 15 minutes in line, #3 in line, 3 Wii's. One was needed to replace a defective one.
Day 3 - 1hour, 30 minutes, #4 in line, 3 Wii's. Not in the cards. We'll wait awhile! At least that's $250 + ( plus for all the games/accesories I'd buy) I still have.
