I can’t believe I’m typing this- but I had to work this past weekend. My job? Binge watching “Orange is the New Black” on Netflix. Yes, seriously!
Last week was a LONG week. Hell, it’s been a long month and it only just started, so when I got the assignment from Netflix to put the kids to bed, pull up Netflix, and unwind with one of the TV series in their library, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Especially since basically everything I watch on cable is on frickin’ hiatus leaving me sad and lonely in the primetime hours.
I know, I KNOW- I’m way late to the game; people have been raving about “Orange is the New Black” for what feels like forever now- so even though I had a choice between watching series I already love, I figured it was better late than never when it comes to OitNB. Why not? It can’t be worse than watching an episode of Friends for the 700th time. I love Friends, y’all, but seriously- there’s only so much Ross one person can take.
Look- I can’t remember exactly how it happened, but somehow we managed to blast through 7 episodes in one night; we just couldn’t stop watching! To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. Well… as pleasant as watching women in prison can be, anyway! We didn’t expect to love it, but we did- and I actually felt a LOT less stressed out at the end of the night. Especially since I’m not in prison.
Like with most shows I fall in love with, I fear the end- and OitNB only has two seasons out so far! What ever will I do with myself once I reach the last current episode?!?
OH! I know! Entertain myself with the other series Netflix has to offer! I highly recommend you do the same. It’s almost summer break (for some of us, already is)- we NEED our unwind time!
Here’s a list of popular shows on Netflix that they fittingly call “Mom’s Sanctuary”:
And here are some shows you may have missed and just might love!
Grab yourself a drink, curl up on the couch, and unwind with me and Netflix!

Y'know what's awesome? I don't even have to waste time trying new recipes because my kids will tell me they hate it before I start cooking.
@Julieannefiu I still sing WRAPPED UP LIKE A DOUCHE. I think they're lying about the "real" lyrics
I sang SO many embarrassingly wrong song lyrics with such confidence. pic.twitter.com/Ww5TaAxY3r
@AndreaPerez0217 Not that I'm biased, but I highly recommend ;) Hope you enjoy!
