I know I've been sporadic lately and I'll tell you why and it's a little story.

Before I was married, I went to visit my little sister who also wasn't married. She was in college and played lots of video games. I was with her for a week and we literally didn't leave her house for practically the entire time because she got me into playing a fanatic. I was fixated!

Eventually I came back to reality but knowing I hadn't won the game yet, I bought an N64, the Zelda (Ocarina of Time) game, and beat the game.

It's been in my storage room collecting dust...until now.

My niece has been here since Sunday and I was feeling bad for her because all she was doing was playing with SP - Candyland, legos, play-doh. All the stuff that's fun for about 30 minutes. But I'm talking hours. And I wasn't obligating her to do it but she said, "what else is there to do?" Hmmm - what else would a 14 year old WANT to do?

So out came Zelda - and she's hooked doing way better at it than I ever did but while she plays, I've become hooked again too. I love watching her play and since I remember lots, I can help her. We've been up until 1am for the past couple of nights and I can't tear myself away!

Aww! That's really sweet. Good luck with Zelda... I could never beat the game because I was so scared of the spiders and creepy, evil creatures. So basically, I liked riding Link's horse in the little stable area.

Ha! I'm a total Zelda junkie. We played both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask on N64 and then bought them for Gamecube, and I also played Twilight Princess on Xbox 360. Zelda is my favorite game series!

You are a fun aunt. I think it is great that you are spending time with niece. And finding stuff that she likes to do.

We have Wii Zelda and my family says it is the most addictive one yet. :)

On the other hand, I am sucked in by Mario Carts, Luxor, and Wii Fit.

I am like this with Donkey Kong Country. Me and Josh fight over that game. I'm always like, "But wait! I just about finished that level! One more turn!"

You are such a teenager at heart. My kids love Zelda, I can't figure out the controller..
