rock band rocks!

Rock_band_cover-218-85

Last year I spent Christmas Day at my friend Y's house.  A couple of her friends came over and brought their Play Station and the game Rock Band.  I had never heard of it.  The last video game I played was Pitfall on my Atari system.  I was nervous at first but eventually tried singing and playing the drums.  As soon as I tried it, I was hooked.  We played for hours and hours. 

Last week, Y and her husband bought their very own Play Station and Rock Band.  Yippee!!!  She invited me over Thursday night after work to play and watch the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance.  OMG.  We had a blast.  This time I tried the guitar and loved it.  I also sang a little.  I just don't have the coordination for the drums; the bass drum foot pedal kills me!  Thankfully, Y loves the drums.

Then, Friday night Y hosted a "Girls' Night In."  It was a bunch of wonderful girls, tons of food, margaritas and Rock Band.  Needless to say, I had a fantastic time.  If you haven't played this game, you must try it!  I swear it's addictive.  If only I had an extra $600....I'd buy my very own! 

It was so nice to have two stress free days in a row.  Two days without crying.  What a concept.  Today was OK too.  Just a quiet day at home.  Tomorrow, is a whole different story.  Tomorrow is Sadie's first birthday.  More about that tomorrow.
