Wife Swap

(how often do people actually use this word?) taking a sick day at home from praying to the porcelain god all night, I decided to watch a little television. I came across this show. I must say, I. AM. ADDICTED. If you have never seen this show, the concept is the producers choose 2 families that could not be further apart in lifestyles and the wives live in the other families house for 2 weeks.

For instance, they had a family that was all about etiquette and a family that had no rules or manners. At the end of the 2 weeks, the etiquette family let down their guard and relaxed a little and the family with no manners learned some and life was more harmonious.

It is amazing the resistance these families have to trying a new way of living, especially since they only have to do it for 1 week.

The nice thing is, that each family actually learns something and feels that it was a good experience.

It teaches a good lesson to all of us that it is not good to be too extreme in one way or another, to be flexible with life and to be open minded to others.

Yeah, I have seen that show a few times. Makes me giggle. BUT you are right, we all do have alot to learn from each other. That is why I like blogs, I learn alot from all of YOU
hope you are feeling better
Now that I am moved and settled, hopefully I can get back to normal (oh wait, never was) and visit my blogger friends more often

This show is like my worst nightmare come true or like house guests who never leave but when they do, they leave messes in their wake !
