OK, I will come clean. I have been terribly distracted for the last few weeks and I have my dear daughter to blame. Darling daughter sent me a link on Face book for Farm Town, a virtual online game in which you become a farmer and tend to your fields. As a farmer, you are required to plant seeds, water, build fences, harvest your crops and try to get hired by your fellow farmers to earn more money.
At first, I pooh poohed the idea of harvesting my potatoes. After much whining from my daughter, I proceeded to check it out. Big mistake! I mean BIG MISTAKE!
Now, I have never been a geeky game nerd. Nintendo or Atari just were not my thing. Simply put, I cannot detail the charismatic traits of this game.
In two short weeks, I have gone from a level one farmer to level 25. In short, I am on a mad pace to reach the final level, 36. As I tell my husband, there are worse addictions, I suppose.
Check it out if you dare…Farm Town
PS…do not blame me if you become addicted!
