It all started with the fact that 1) the boy's playstation is not running very well.at.all and 2) the want for the video game Lego Star Wars the Complete Saga. This game, is all of the Star Wars movies put together. Which if you have lego Stars Wars 1 &2 doesn't that mean you have all of them?!Hmmm...anyway, the boys have been wanting this new game, but it doesn't work with their game system. So we decided, that it would be fun to get a Wii, for the kids for Christmas.
So Ben went to the Navy exchange and...there were none there. Ben was told that they were going to get a very limited supply in for Black Friday. 100 only.
So we started looking online. At any online store we could think of. We had seen it advertised for $250, and we were not willing to pay more than that. I started looking around and any that were that price were completely sold out. Oh, we found ones that were selling for 400+. Nope not going to happen. We basically decided to forget about it, and we would wait.
Well on Black Friday, I was awake before the exchange was opening for their sale. I decided, very last minute, that since I was up anyway, I would go down there. The lines were insane. Winding clear around the store.I waited about 20-30 minutes just to get in the line! As I was walking through the store, I kept seeing people with the Wii's in their carts. There was supposed to be a limit of 1 per customer, but I saw people with 2 and 3. Finally I managed to get in the electronics department, and they started opening new boxes of them. I happened to get in the right spot, and was promptly handed the coveted wii.
I was so happy. I couldn't wait to go tell Ben. The kids are going to be so excited when they open it. I think Ben wil have fun playing with it too! Oh what we won't do to make our kids happy!
