First of all, I should tell you that I do not watch TV. Well, I do watch American Idol. And Modern Family. And The Middle. But that’s it. My kids, however, seem to have that TLC channel on all the time lately. So I’ve seen brides shop for wedding dresses in “Say Yes to the Dress”, heard families discuss their “Strange Addictions,” hurried into my scrap room/studio to re-organize when “Hoarders” comes on, and trimmed my household budget after watching “Extreme Couponers” lug their 10-pound binders to the grocery store.
Mind you, I’m not watching these shows intentionally. I’m a reluctant bystander working in my kitchen which is in full view of our family room and tv.
Then “Sister Wives” showed up on the screen. My older dd, DQ (DramaQueen), explained the concept of these 4 women married to 1 man and sharing the same home. Yes, honey, I’ve heard of polygamy before but am astounded that this is on the air…on THE LEARNING CHANNEL (TLC) of all things. What are we LEARNING?
In truth, I did not watch a single minute of this show….but I still thought about it. And you know what happens when I start thinking! ha ha! I began to envision life as a “Sister Wife”….and hey, it didn’t seem so bad.
In my polygamist marriage, there would be SIX sister wives. I, of course, would be Head Wife #1, who assigns duties to the others. Here’s how I see their household responsibilities:
|SISTER WIFE #2 – Cleaning|
|SISTER WIFE # 3 – Cooking|
|SISTER WIFE #4 – Laundry|
|SISTER WIFE # 5 – Driving|
|SISTER WIFE # 6 – You know what I mean|
And that leaves me. Sister Wife Numero Uno. When I’m not off traveling the world and exploring other exotic cultures…
…then I will be at home in my studio, enjoying life…
And scrapbooking every minute of it!
I’ll be interviewing potential Sister Wives shortly and let you know how things turn out 🙂
