I like watching TV, movies and crocheting at home. That’s how I do it. My goal is to make my home comfortable for me and my family. I like the following dramas, Empire, Scandal, Being Mary Jane and The Have and Have Nots. I also love anything on HGTV and DIY. My latest is Netflix (I know I’m late). My daughter begged me to get a Netflix account and yes, I’ve watched every episode of Orange Is The New Black and patiently await the start of season three in June.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights are my evening shows. I get comfortable, get my iPad out and it’s on! Facebook and Twitter timelines starts really rolling. I DVR all the shows because sometimes I miss something important for trying to keep up with my social media while watching. There are times though when I don’t check social media until the show is over. I understand why Netflix or Hulu is so important now, uninterrupted episodes.
Lately on my Facebook timeline are people who disagree with the love and popularity of the hit show Empire on Fox. Comments range between we are buying the propaganda and we shouldn’t watch the show because it portrays black people negatively. I remember when The Cosby Show was in its heyday, we complained saying that’s not how black people really live. I’m letting go of the responsibility that we need to make America see black people for who they really are. My life is not like the fictitious show Empire or The Cosby Show, I’m a middle-aged woman from the Midwest with a husband with a combination of six children and four grandchildren. That describes more women than the ones on TV. I know the difference between reality and entertainment.
I will not comment on these type of posts because most of them are former church members and their comments are very judgmental and the discussions go on for days, and they are entitled to their opinions. I don’t have time for that. One thing I’ve learned and am still learning….stop judging. I know it’s hard, but I make a conscious effort to practice it everyday.
Enjoy life and if it’s watching Empire, The Steve Harvey Show, Fixer Upper or crocheting and blogging….do you and what makes you happy.
