I'm a member of the XWA: it's like AA but different.

XWA stands for X-box Wives Anonymous.

So I'll start this meeting off appropriately by introducing myself.

Hi, my name is Samantha and my husband LOVES his X-box.

Hi Samantha.

I'm not sure when my husband's love for his X-box entirely began because you see it was in his life before I was.

All I know is that he has a serious commitment to it.

So serious in fact that tonight my husband will make not one but two trips to Game Stop because Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes out today...well tonight at midnight to be exact.

He is on his first trip right now to pick up his receipt. ETA: He's back and has now waived his receipt at me on 3 separate occasions.

Then he goes back at midnight to trade his receipt for the game.

He's so committed to this game that he has his homework for today and tomorrow done. So he can spend every free second playing his game.

I'm about to lose my husband for who knows how long. It is seriously a good thing we don't have kids right now because if we did, they would lose a daddy too.

I'm losing our big screen tv to his playing because that is where the X-box is in our house.

So for all of you that have husbands who are obsessed with COD, I salute you as a fellow sister. And for the rest of you who have not taken a turn with a new game day this year, let me know when it's your turn. I'll be glad to attend your meeting to support you.

Until then, I'll be in our bedroom watching Christmas movies, reading your blogs and pretty much living the single life until probably sometime next week.

Happy Monday.

I feel your pain, sister!!! We don't do COD here, but my husband is still obsessed with NCAA football. In fact, I am in the bedroom watching TV (on the small TV) while he is in the living room playing as I type!!! Sigh!

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
