Blogging Wives make Happy Families


Yes we all know that blogging is important because it helps us vent our thoughts and feelings thus helping us at times to avoid depression and also boosts our ego and gives us self-satisfaction to see our words in print with people appreciating and commenting on them.

        But I discovered a very new dimension to blogging a few days back ,that apart from all these therapeutic functions blogging also played a very important role in preventing family dissatisfaction!!!!

  Actually what happened was that one fine night just before going to bed I 
went into the land of 'introspection'and  felt that all this blogging and google-ing  on my part was being very unfair to my family and that they deserved more of MY love and affection.

.So I decided to curtail the hours of computer--oggling that  I was unashamedly indulging in for the past so many months.

BUT can you guess my dismay when the goings on inside my house uncovered themselves or rather I discovered them !! 

Here is a glimpse of what happened that day--- I was in the kitchen making my family's favourite breakfast pouring as much love and affection I could pour and even humming my favourite song when I overheard  this conversation in hushed tones--


Father and daughters on the dining table;; 


Father--"What's the matter? how come she is in the kitchen ?


Younger daughter-"aaj computer bilkul bund hai God knows why!!      

 Hubby to me ---Whats the matter ?aaj computer pe nahi ho!!

 Me with a romantic smile -Nahi I have decided to stop blogging .

 Chorus--- "WHAAT!! WHY?

 Me more lovingly and emotionally--"I am so sorry I have neglected you people so much. Ab I must stop all this I am so ashamed of myself" 

By this time tears  had started welling  in my eyes.

 Chorus---"No no we used to love to see you so busy and happy don't stop blogging We are absolutely fine go ahead  

 All this love and affection made me more determined to stop blogging and devote more time to them .

With tears flowing I said --"that's very sweet of you people but I know you want me to be with you all and not sit at the computer".

By this time they had lost their patience and had made up their mind to come out in the open  



Daughter to me---"No mom you go ahead  we are absolutely ok without your attention in fact Papa used to say -----"and she  bit her tongue
 
Me --"what did"" Papa used to say?""  

daughter became a bit nervous 

Father came to her rescue--"I said  that with you browsing and blogging life had become very easy for me      
                                    1.None of your nagging 
                                    2.No compulsory social visits which used to raise my B. P . 
                                    3.All your useless shopping sprees have stopped
                                    4.I no longer have to yearn to use my own car its there whenever I want it ........

 When the daughters saw all this coming from their father and me listening quietly they did not want to miss  the opportunity and  quipped in 


 "Mom do you know ?? how many times  we have used your sarees? got them drycleaned and put them back in the almirah?  Hahahaha !!  your favourite blue chiffon has visited the 'raffoowala masterjee'---so many times and you haven't even noticed the damage ,nor have you realised that the blue ceramic vase has been restored to its original shape with the help of 'fevicol'

  ME  sighing---hmmmmm!

THEY---------hahaha!!!

Meeting dispersed I thought of visiting the kitchen 

.Overheard  the maid  talking to the  cook ----"Aaj kaisi chai banayee ekdum pheeki n doodh na cheeni"

    cook-----"Kya karoo aaj beeebiji computer pe kaam nahi kar rahi hai baar baar idhar aa rahi hai "
 
I come back quietly .Don't know how to react Happy or Sad.



MORAL OF THE STORY

                              ----Blogging Wives make Happy families 

                                    1 They balance the budget

                                     2 Reduce hypertension

                                      3 reduce telephone and petrol bills

                                      4 make the servants happy

                                       
        ******            *******         ********         *******      *******   

               But one thing was certain,and that was a saving grace
                Tears swelled in my eyes. and  I  me  myself embraced
               Look at it how you want ,look at it whichever way      
                    They did think of me always and every day !!
