This weekend I got my Xbox 360. I had been wanting once since they had come out, and Shayna convinced me that this should be the week we get it. So I traded in my original Xbox along with most of my games. We got about $80 for it, which was a little depressing.
I now have All-Pro football and two wireless controllers so I can play with someone else here. I've also reserved my copy of Halo 3. I don't think I'll be able to afford any other games until Christmas. By far the coolest feature of the 360 is being able to download demo games for free. So far, I think I've downloaded like 5.
In other news this weekend, my close personal friend Odgie had his birthday party on Saturday at Famous Dave's. There was much rejoicing.
Sunday brought good times with people at our new church. Particularly the Rice's (Shout out to Peter and Betsy) who were part of the: The Super Advanced First Team in putt putt.
That evening brought more good times because we played games with new friends Tom & Lore Lynch (shout out to Tom and Lore).
The only downer of the weekend was news that the Roland's will be leaving the DC area to move to St. Louis by the end of September. Something about jobs out there..I don't know, I don't pay much attention. Seriously though, Dave and Jen, you will be missed. Good luck, and hopefully we'll get to do dinner or something before you go.
Last shout out will be to my lovely & beautiful wife who is starting with the kids tomorrow. Last year was brutal. This year will be much better dear, I know it. :-)
Remember kids, keep your head in the stars, your feet on the ground, and a bowl of jello under your pillow, just in case you get hungry at night.
