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!

Vodka might rhyme with Friday, but what rhymes with Tuesday is "SHUT THE HELL UP AND LET ME HAVE MY COFFEE!"
Am I a "housewife"? Technically yes. Do I do "housewife" things? UM. NO. I fail. holdinholden.com/2014/08/i-am…
