About $350/month..wow. We have to take two cars to work because of our kids drop off and pickup times. We have small, fairly fuel efficent cars..but we live in Hawaii. The best gas price I've seen in the last year is 3.96/gal..averages more like $4.
My daughters 4th birthday is coming up and I was considering getting her a U Draw for the Wii. We've had the Wii for a while, but for the most part she's ignored it (probably because her brother is nearly constantly playing Lego Star Wars/Harry Potter/Batman).
So is the U Draw appropriate for her age? Is there any real difference between the Ubisoft one and the THQ one? Are the games cross compatible? Any games that rock/suck for it? Again, we're talking about a 4 year old girl..so obviously the Disney Princess game is getting into the mix.
Oatmeal with fruit in it...but, be prepared. Know where the nearest clean restroom is from wherever you will be for a few hours afterwards. The good news is that your body will get used to it, the bad news is that the first few weeks will be.... extremely regular. EXTREMELY.
Aside from that, it might help to know your specific issue. I have high cholesterol. My "ideal" diet should be low in fats. I was advised to cut bits of fat from my meats and eat leaner cuts. Choose fish or chicken over beef and pork. Do you have health insurance? Your insurance should cover a visit to a dietitian, especially if your doctor recommends it.
I wish I hadn't let me wife talk me into buying it for the kids. The only use the Wii has had in the last year or so, is my son playing Lego Star Wars and De Blob 2. I had a gamefly membership for over a year..I think the only games I've had any interest in on the Wii are Donkey Kong, Mario Galaxy 1&2 and Mario Kart.
The Wii will be my last transaction with Nintendo.
