My name is Maureen, and I am addicted to Pokemon.
There! I've admitted it! Embarassing as it is, I am what my sons refer to as a Poke Mom. Several years ago we went camping up at Steamboat Springs and my kids had their GameBoys and Pokemon games with them, and gave me one of their old systems and games to try to play. I was hooked. I have just about every version of Pokemon that's come down the Pike, and I love them all.
For my birthday the boys enabled me further in my addiction. AJ gave me his old DS (the spring broke so the lid doesn't stay up on it's own, but what do I care??) and then he and Kevin went out and bought me a copy of the Pokemon Pearl version.
The situation is serious. For the past two days I have done nothing but play that blasted game, and I love it. I only seem to take breaks to eat and hit the potty. I'm thinking of getting one of those beer can hats with the straws that go down to your mouth and loading it with a couple of diet cokes so I don't have to make trips to the fridge. Is that sad?
Like I said, it's serious. So I decided to pull myself away and get started on the outline for my next book and check out what's happening in blogville. I had a fabulous birthday. My best friend Tara took me to dinner where the best part of the evening was being in her company and talking up a storm. My husband took me to lunch before he had to go off to work, and my sons gave me all the birthday hugs and kisses I could have asked for ....
and of course, the latest Pokemon game .....
