School finally ended for my kids last week. Does anyone else feel that the end of the school year is a lot more hectic than the beginning?? There was so much going on that I felt like I was being pulled in 5 different ways. I feel like a huge weight was lifted off my chest. Well at least for a little while. Part of me knows that I have tons of work to do to catch up from the madness that is the end of the school year. Another part of me knows that I AM EXHAUSTED!!! Sometimes you have to listen to your body and rest. This can mean taking a bath, taking a nap, sitting in your favorite chair with a book, or vegging out on the couch and watching a movie.

I admit that I am a bit addicted to Netflix. Some might think that I’m on a mission to watch everything on there. I stream movies or shows while I work. I love marathons. And I love to check out the new movies and even little known movies on the site.

Here are a few great titles to watch on Netflix when you want to have a mom moment! (Sorry Kids!)

1. Orange Is the New Black: I have not watched this one yet, but it is on my list! I see a lot of buzz about it on Facebook. I will definitely be watching this very soon! It’s about life in a women’s prison.
2. Scandal: This show needs no explanation. If you have not heard of it you have likely been living under a rock. 🙂 I am a junkie! I never miss an episode. The great thing about watching on Netflix is that you don’t have to wait a week in pain and agony like the rest of us. You can just keep on watching… WITH NO COMMERCIALS!
3. Pretty Little Liars: This is another one that I have not watched yet. I must check it out.
4. Sherlock: I LOVE SHERLOCK!! I am anxiously awaiting the new series. The day that I saw that Series 3 was available on Netflix I almost turned a cartwheel. LOL! Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant! And Martin Freeman does a great job of showing us that he can play more than just a big foot hobbit. 🙂 Although he is a great hobbit.
5. Breaking Bad: The is a great show!! I have not seen the whole thing yet. However, I must! I have watched episodes here and there with my fiance’. He is hooked! The actors on this show are phenomenal.
6. Parenthood: Looking for a great family drama? Parenthood likely has something that we can all relate to.

1. Weeds: I remember when this was on and I never watched it. I’m not sure that I want to now either. Suburban mom selling drugs? Hmm… LOL!
2. Call the Midwife: I’m not too familiar with this one. As the name would state, it is a show about midwives.
3. Freaks and Geeks: If you like teen comedies, check this one out. Apparently it has quite the cult following!
4. Shameless: This show stars William H. Macy. I am betting that makes it a great show to watch. He is an great actor. He plays a single father to 6 that apparently has quite the drinking problem.
5. Top of the Lake: I give a HUGE thumbs-up for this show. I just watched it a couple of weeks ago and it is great! The characters are unique, crazy, and troubled… just like life. Definitely check this one out. It also does quite a job of tugging at the heart strings.
