Take me please

Is anyone else watchingWife Swap on ABC? This has turned out to be one of my favorite shows of the season. In case you haven't seen it, here is the basic idea. Two wives trade places and take over the other's home for two weeks. They agree to follow the rules written by the departing wife for their new household ,how they parent, shop, do the house work, and manage their budgets and their social life. But then, in the second week, everything changes. The new wives take charge. They introduce their own set of rules and get to run the new household their way. Most of the shows become very explosive and I don't think I have seen an episode yet where the rules are followed. Believe it or not most of the time it is the husband who breaks the rule and not the children. The fun part of the show is that they seem to match families that are completely opposite in every way. I have found myself wondering what it would be like to swap families; I think my crazy life would drive someone else away in just a day never mind two weeks. They would take one look at the boxes and run.

I've seen that show a few times and I always end up wanting to smack the husband that says that he doesn't need to help around the house because his job is just to make money.
