This post was written by me as a member of the Netflix Stream team, for which I receive a complimentary Netflix subscription.
My husband travels a lot. Most often when he's out of town, I work after I put the kids in bed so I can spend more time with them during the day. However, I do like to enjoy a little personal downtime on occasion rather than working.
Over the weekend, Brian was out of town and all three of us girls had the stomach flu. It was seriously the worst virus I have had in a very, very long time. I spent a lot of time snuggling my girls and taking care of their needs while trying to keep it together given how sick I was.
I was trying to get them to sleep as much as possible once the vomiting stopped, so I set them up in their room with DVDs and Netflix. It worked like a charm and they both got lots of sleep.
I wasn't feeling up to working much, so I tuned into Season 2 of Orange is the New Black. I watched the first season last year while Brian was on tour, so I was excited to indulge in the second season.
It was very relaxing to sit back and not worry about work or the fact that the dishes and laundry had piled up with everyone being sick. I made it through the entire season! I haven't watched a whole season of any show that quickly in a while. If you haven't watched Orange is the New Black yet, you should check it out on Netflix.
If you've already seen Orange is the New Black and you're looking for something to watch, here are some of my other favorite shows that are currently streaming on Netflix (some newer ones as well as some oldies):
