New town, new season, new baby, and lots of tv.

10 Apr

I have a typical tale to tell. We recently moved to a new town, it’s spring time FINALLY,  I’m a new stay at home mom and it’s a new way of life.  I LOVE being a stay at home mom.  I’m not gonna lie.  It’s SO fun.  I had to bow out of work in my 8th month of pregnancy.  That last month ½ was INCREDIBLE.  NO WORK…Sleeping in… watching my programs on the tele, spending time with absolutely THE BEST husband, pedicures, shopping,  take naps with the pups….. then the baby came. Change but in the best way! I’m very lucky to be able to stay at home with my little one and watch ALL of the ways she changes every day.  Mostly, I’m really thankful that I don’t have to have anyone else watch her right now.  I think I would be a basket case if I had to leave her with ANYONE other than maybe my Mom or MIL/FIL.  No one is worthy to be in her presence as much as me or my husband.  She’s so fantastic. AND she is so smart. Seriously, I know parents are bias… but OMG, she is the smartest baby on the planet.

With this new lifestyle, I’m having to find a new “groove” in my day to day living.  I have ALWAYS held down a steady, good paying job.  The fact that I don’t have a “job” to drive to and execute every day is a different kind of living for me.  I’ve been trying to treat my new lifestyle/role as my job (because it IS a job—the best job).  I’m tackling lots of cooking, learning how to clean (sorry mom, it never took as a youngin’) and keep my child entertained.

In the midst of all my daily chores, I record A LOT of tv. Ever since I was introduced to the DVR, I have recorded and kept up with an impressive list of shows.  I have been saying FOR YEARS that I would be an excellent tv program critic.  I love my programs and I love a good story—especially when I am taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride.  I love even more awesome talent acting and Here are the shows I am currently watching/evaluating at the moment:

Some may say I waste a lot of time on these shows, or some may say “you have a 6 mos old child, how can you spend your time watching all of those shows?”  Easy.  I’m a multi-tasker and I LOVE TV series—it’s like one big extra long movie.  Love it or hate it, it’s what I do.

Binky catastrophe in the nursery- gotta go!
