Family Intervention

I saw this on Pinterest (another addiction).  It just fit. :) Photo belongs to failbook.com

My husband stayed up until 2:45 am playing Civilization on his computer this weekend. I was teasing him that we needed to have intervention for him. So the boys asked what intervention meant. The conversation went like this:

Me: An intervention is something you do when someone you love is addicted to something and you want them to stop. So we should sit Daddy down and have a Civilization intervention with him.

Chase (8): Hmmm. So we need to have a Facebook intervention with you then Mommy.

Charlie (7): Yes! Mom, I think you are addicted to your laptop.

Everyone agrees with head nodding.

Me: Hahahaha. You kids are so funny. But I'm not addicted to those things. I just really, really enjoy them.

Chase: Mom, you know what you always tell us about pointing out other people's problems when you have a problem of your own?

Me: Laughing. So hard. You guys give me an awful lot to blog about.

Charlie: Don't you dare blog about us!

Chandler (11): Guys.  She blogs about us ALL the time. You just don't know it.

Chase: See? There's another she's addicted to! Blogging! We need to have a serious intervention with her guys.

All I could hear from Matt in the other room was chuckling. WHILE HE WAS PLAYING CIVILIZATION ON HIS LAPTOP.

My name is Tasha Lehman and I am addicted to the internet.

SO SUE ME.

Coming soon: Why I love Facebook and don't care who knows it.

What do you need an intervention from?

PS - They forgot to mention chocolate so I get to keep over indulging in that, right?

    I'm pretty sure that I need a Twitter intervention. And probably a sofa intervention, too. I never used to be lazy, but I was sick for the past three weeks (yes, it was terrible) and now I'm having a hard time getting back into my normal routine after three weeks of lying on the sofa feeling sorry for myself while my three year old brought me chapstick to make me feel better.

  8. If you laugh throughout, then BLOG about it afterwards, AND post it to fb I'm pretty sure that it can be assumed that the intervention was a complete bust...:-)
