So June is almost over. How on EARTH did that happen??? If there is anything summer makes you appreciate (besides sunshine, days at the beach, and sleeping in), it is alone time. Because if you are a stay at home, alone time ceases in the summer. It is all kids, all the time.
Tonight someone asked me what my kids’ summer bedtimes are. They were shocked when I said between 8 and 9. But I will tell you why we don’t do bedtime any later.
Because I desperately need some time for just me or just me and the hubby every night. Because that is “Friday Night Lights” time.
It used to be “Scandal” time. We finished that up at the beginning of June and mourned the fact we would have to wait until fall for more Olivia Pope and Associates. Seriously mourned.
I crowd sourced what our next show on Netflix should be and overwhelmingly the vote was for “Friday Night Lights”. So now I curl up at night with Coach and Tami Taylor and the Dillon Panthers. And when I go to bed I think about whether Lyla should be with Jason or Tim. And if Matt and Julie will make it.
I know some people find me time with crafts or a good book (actually I make sure to fit one of those in every night too), but I like to throw in a little TV too. If you do too, here are 10 my favorites to stream on Netflix right now (I can personally vouch for the first 4, but all the others are on my “must watch” list):
- Freaks and Geeks
- Orange is the New Black
- Breaking Bad
- Pretty Little Liars
- Call the Midwife
