I am traveling this week, in Florida for a course in what might possibly be my next career. It is totally freaking me out that I might be leaving the role of full time stay at home mom. I have worn that badge with pride and it has become a huge part of my identity, but with Silas heading to full time school next year it is time for me to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. #holdme
I have never been away from my kiddos and hubby for this long. Thankfully my mom was able to join me, and let’s be honest, being in Florida when it is 7 degrees in Michigan isn’t the worst thing in the world. I am in a conference for most of the day but I soak up lunch every day sitting by the hotel pool. And driving “home” after the course I get to watch the sun setting over the ocean. But nothing is the same as being home.
Ryan and I are smack dab in the middle of binge watching White Collar on Netflix. It is such a fun show recommended to me by my friend Mary. It is a drama with the perfect mix of humor, a ridiculously handsome lead actor and story arcs that keep you hooked. It’s no Friday Night Lights, but I have given up on finding an adequate replacement. White Collar is more than entertaining in the meantime.
What I love about Netflix is that I can watch it wherever I am on whatever I want. I have the Netflix app on my tablet or I can watch on my computer. Ryan and I can even watch together from 10 states away. I am very grateful since I have tried to watch cable TV and my WORD is it just one crappy show after another. Seriously, how do you people stomach The Bachelor???!!!!
Let’s be real, Netflix also allowed my hubby to work from home today while mommy is in Florida and the kids have a day off of school. Apparently we are never to speak of how much TV the kids watched today, but I know our Netflix got a workout today. And I am thankful that it has a TON of quality programming for kids.
For us, Netflix is perfect for the whole family wherever we are!!
