The sold sign was packed away a long time ago, now buried under the mountain of boxes that is our tangible lives from the last 10 years. We have just four more sleeps in this house that welcomed us home from our honeymoon, provided distraction through infertility, sat quiet and neglected while I spent most of my waking hours in the NICU, filled to the brim with cloth diapers, baby gear and baby cried. Three sets of feet took their first steps on these floors, and corners have been dented by a head that required stitches.
Yes, this last month has been busy. All of 2015 has been busy, in fact, and the light is at the end of the tunnel.
I can’t wait to return to a normal routine with my family, and while we pack up our lives and move to the next county, we’re clinging to the little constants we haven’t had to pack away, one of which is Netflix.
Left to their own devices – which if you’ve ever moved with three 4-year-olds, you know is going to happen whether you like it or not – ETC have come to find their own favorites on Netflix. Toby loves the Lego shows, especially the Ninja ones; Eleanor is a huge fan of My Little Pony; and Callista can’t get enough of Color Crew, a show she claims teaches her how to color. I don’t necessarily agree with the shows they pick, but I love watching their preferences develop.
I had a solid week of Brit binging – all Hugh Grant all the time. I watched Notting Hill and the two Bridget Jones movies and … I guess that’s it. Do you SEE what moving is doing to my brain? Three movies equals a solid week. Because it took me that long to get through them. Oof.
Then I found Clueless. Ah, Cher. I can always count on 1990s humor to pick me up when I’m feeling blue or stressed, and it doesn’t get more ’90s than Cher & Co. And Paul Rudd. Oh, Paul Rudd.
On my to-watch list for the upcoming month is Daredevil, the new(ish? How long do we call something “new” on the Internet these days?), Netflix original series from Marvel, which I soaked entirely too long in the tub while watching one night. I haven’t had the attention span for it since, but I am anxious to see where the show goes. I’m a total sucker for movies based on comics – interesting considering I never got into comics.
Did you watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Have you watched Daredevil? What else am I missing while I’ve been buried under boxes?
