Not Now. I’m Watching My Stories

Since making the transition to “working inside the home”, I have gone and done it. I have turned into one of those women. Sure, when I had a job “outside the home”, I used Tivo to keep up with All My Children. Now, come hell or high water, at 11:00 AM, I’m parked in front of the TV peeking voyeuristically into the lives and loves of the residents of Pine Valley.
My mother used to watch AMC when I was a wee little baby (in fact, my addiction started even before my own birth, as she watched it while pregnant with me). I grew up on it. When we first got a VCR in, like, 1980, its primary function was to tape AMC. Forget After School Specials; in my world, we got our cookies and milk and cozied up to Erica Kane and her latest husband.
So here we are, 31 years later, and I still watch. And yes. I am that woman. When and if we finally have kids, 11:00 AM will most definitely be nap time. And when the kiddo is too old for a nap, she can go play outside. Because mommy is watching her stories.

    Kailey has her “quiet time” from 2:00 to 4:00 so I can watch One Life to Live and General Hospital 🙂

    I really hope I don’t start watching stories. The only one I would watch would be Y&R – but they’re all so ridiculous with people dying and coming back 7 years later, or leaving the show as person A and coming back as person B – not scripted that they were this person, havin a memory issue – but really coming back, as in written into the script, as a completely different character.

    Now…in my best smokers voice, with a cig in one hand and a can of beer in the other, with my hair up in rollers….
    “Go outside and play! Momma’s watchin her stories!”

    I love how you’ve adopted the “working inside the home” moniker. 🙂

    Ok, now I feel better about admitting that I use the DVR to record As The World Turns.
    This week one of the pivotal characters died and I was crying. Michael made the mistake of trying to understand the reaction by asking why I was crying about a character I didn’t even really like that much. Obviously he doesn’t understand the dynamics of a soap opera death. Of course it is a soap opera death so she’ll likely be back (recast) as soon as her husband finds a new love.
