I think it's due to the fact that when the kids are in school our lives are so busy with so much day and day out and by the time my head hits the pillow, I'm pooped, I don't have the energy to keep my eyes open to watch anything.
Summer is like my catch up time, time to sit back and get caught up on all my shows so here's what I've been indulging in.
*Little House on the Prairie Season 1*
I'm sure I don't have to tell you about the wonderful Ingalls family and the sweetest TV show ever.
It's been years and I mean years since I've seen the series and actually I don't even remember them anymore, so watching them again from Netflix has been a mixture of surprise and excitement.
You can't help but smile big when you're watching it but it also makes me yearn for the simpler times and how they made do with everything they had and yet were always smiling and happy. I love that
* Harper's Island*
Do any of you watch this series on CBS? I know that Jen does and likes it as much as I do.
I have said before I'm all into paranormal and ghost shows but one genre I also enjoy is horror and thriller and I think this show has a little of both.
Imagine a wedding party on an island and right from the first show the guests begin getting killed off.
I tell you, usually you can get an idea of who the killer is but this show is so well written that you just don't know. Every single episode leaves you shocked and confused as to who it could be, there have been a few that I thought were it, only to have them get killed or ruled out.
If you missed this special on ABC, I suggest you go back and watch it, but be forewarned because it was one of the most shocking and terrifying shows I've seen in a long time.
I watched it with Curt and we both sat in silence not quite sure what to say, all we could do was steal quick glances at each other and shake our heads.
It brings home the fact that we have been so careless with our planet and just what those actions are going to do to the planet and our life in the future. Please watch if you get a chance.
*Star Trek Movie*
Ok was I the only one left wanting more and wondering why it seemed like the movie was just way too short?
No? Oh good because I watched it and then sat there thinking "there has to be more to this".
What an absolutely AMAZING movie. We're pretty big Trekkies here at home I mean, anytime Star Trek The Next Generation is on the TV we have to watch it, no matter how many times we've seen the episodes.
I really enjoyed this movie, I thought it was well done and the young Capt. Kirk and Spock are really cute too LOL
Special effects and stunning sets and great actors, I loved it and I am hoping they turn it into a series or at least make a few more. Anyone else?
So that's just a little peek at the kind of things I've been watching, but now I'm going to have to take a two week break as we get ready for our vacation to Texas.
We're happy to be taking a break and a nice road trip but this means I need to dive into list making and packing.
That's where you'll find me.
Oh but don't worry, I'm taking my laptop with me and that means YOU all along, I'll take photos, I'll check in and post as much as I can and share our vacation every step of the way.
For now, I'm going to go and start on those lists and lay down for a bit, I'll just say, women stuff if you catch my drift *wink wink*
Have a blessed day!
