Random Confession. It's good for the soul.
I am kind of an open book on this blog, and always have been. I am not sure I have anything to confess that you don't already know. So I guess the only thing I can say is that I am a t.v.aholic.
I was raised in a home where nightly television shows were our entertainment. We watched a lot of t.v. as a family, everything from Little House on the Prairie to Beverly Hills 90210 to Knots Landing. We would eat dinner, clean the kitchen, and then settle into the family room for t.v. time.
Not much has changed, except I DVR everything so I don't have to watch commercials anymore.
I like to get dinner done and cleaned up and be on the couch to watch t.v. by about 6:30 p.m. at night. I have loads of shows that I watch! There are a few things we watch all as a family, but for the most part we all watch different things. I happen to watch most of everything with everybody. It's just what I like to do.
Here is a list of shows that I watch (possibly a complete list, although I might be missing some shows):
Call the Midwife
Worst Cooks in America
Game of Thrones
How to Get Away with Murder
Law and Order: SVU
Secrets and Lies (new)
Parenthood (just finished the series finale)
Once Upon a Time (on Netflix)
Orange is the New Black (on Netflix)
American Crime (new)
The Big Bang Theory
The Night Shift
That's about 22 hours of television a week, minus commercials (yikes!), and not counting any movies we watch on the weekends. Oh well. It's my thing. I don't ever watch any daytime television, however. In fact, unless the kids and I are watching a video for school or they are watching a cartoon they have DVR'd on their lunch break, we don't even turn on the t.v. (except early in the morning when Macie is watching cartoons before we start schoolwork). Eli cannot stand for the t.v. to be on unless someone is sitting down actively watching it.
So there you have it. I love to watch television. I confess.
