My Life on TV!

I'm a great wife!  No, really!  Let me demonstrate with my words......

David calls me yesterday morning (he left early for a meeting) on his way to work, just to tell me how much he loves me and other sweet things he always says.    I ooohhh and ahhhh and then somehow the conversations turns to this......

Me: I'm stressed!  I can't get anything done.  Everyone comes to me needing this or that and the things that I actually need to get done, don't.   I never have any time to myself because the house is like a revolving door - someone comes, someone goes, someone needs something, blah, blah, blah."

Poor husband listens and agrees and "knows how I feel" and finally (to his delight, I'm sure) we hang up and go about our day.

Fast forward several hours and we take our usual place in front of the TV for dinner (yes, that's right - we are not the Waltons!) and we choose to watch The Middle with Collin. 

Every week we agree that the producers of this show must have hidden cameras in our house, because they nail us, most of the time.   It's uncanny!

So, here is the perfect example of my life, as demonstrated by this TV show, that is obviously spying on me.......


Frankie Establishing Office Hours

(I couldn't share the video here, but this link takes you there.)


Basically, Frankie (the mom) keeps forgetting things and realizes that her brain is fried because everyone else keeps storing their stuff in her brain, instead of using their own!  I have said these exact words to my family!  And, in this clip, the family reacts the same way mine does, when I try to call a "meeting"!   Moans, groans, and rolling of the eyes.  Yes, we have it all!

So......she sets up "Office hours" which means that her kids can only come to her during the hours of 5pm and 6pm for their needs.    As her family adheres to the rules, she becomes more alive and actually gets her memory back.    Of course, at the end, it turns out to be a disaster also, but it is still hilarious and so true!

One day I'm going to find those cameras they've hidden in my house! 

Oh, and did I mention that my husband is very similar to the dad on that show?

See!  I know they're watching us!

Well, it makes for good TV, so it's all good, right?

  1. LOL, we are not the Waltons either, but sometimes we pretend to be and say, "Goodnight John Boy" and "Goodnight Mary Ellen" to each other. :-)
