It’s Guest Post Friday! Yabadabadoo! Today we welcome Jennifer from Playgroups are No Place for Children as a sister-wife. Except we won’t make her sleep with our husbands. (You’re welcome, Jennifer.) While Jennifer is breathing a huge sigh of relief over her reduced sister-wife duties, let me tell you, she is not only funny, but one of the most awesome people around. We know you will enjoy her savvy advice!
Dear Mouthy Housewives,
How do you know when you really do have a problem with spending too much time in front of the computer? If the kids mention it, is it a problem? If the husband hasn’t mentioned yet…then maybe not a problem? If the house hasn’t been cleaned in, oh–3 weeks, but hot meals still being served, semi-problem? If feeling guilty? Then, a problem?

Dear Headed to Rehab,
Let me get this straight. Your husband hasn’t mentioned that you’re on the computer too often, your house was cleaned sometime within the last month, you’re serving hot meals and you’re wondering if you have a problem with the amount of time you spend on the computer? Well the short answer is, “no!” The slightly longer version of the answer is, “Are you kidding me? NO!”
If you were spending too much time in front of the computer, your kids would be getting nothing but some kibble and a bowl of water for nourishment. Your house would look like something from an episode of Hoarders and your thighs would be permanently scarred from laptop burns. And you thought you had a problem. HA! Not even.
I think the real problem here is society! YES, SOCIETY. It’s society who wants to keep us wimmens in the kitchen and away from the technological devices. You’re obviously buying into this oppression. Were you exposed to lots of lemon scented Pine-Sol as a child? I suspect so.
I suppose there are other things you could be doing with your time, like cleaning your house everyday or sewing or, GAH, volunteering. Sure, they are noble endeavors, but can you imagine what your funeral will be like someday? Snoozefest, for sure. Hanging out on the computer all day exposes you to all sorts of fun and interesting people.
Now go relax with a little Facebook or Twitter. Enjoy!
Jennifer, Guest TMH
