A December Give-Away (with a bonus coping mechanism thrown in at the end)
Every now and then, my freelance work with Netflix means that a little treat shows up on my doorstep. I love that! This month, they sent me a goodie box for New Year’s Eve (more on that in a week or so), and two complimentary gift cards for a year’s subscription to their service. I’m going to give one to a family member, but the other one is just for you!
(That’s 365 day’s worth of streaming, by the way. A $100.00 value! A very good deal!)
SO. What I’m asking you to do is this: Leave a comment on this post, telling me how you’re coping these days, and I’ll announce the winner of the gift card on Monday morning.
I’ll tell you how I’m coping. I’m not, but I pretend.
Also? I mentioned, oh, about three weeks ago, that I was deleting the Netflix app from my phone. That lasted exactly one week ’til I cracked because you know what? I’m a stressed-out mom with too much to do before Christmas. Yes, the spiritual books DO help. They help TREMENDOUSLY when I have a mind. But when I’ve spend the past fifteen hours dealing with…stuff, when I’ve cooked & cleaned & chauffeured the masses; when I’ve sorted & washed & folded & refolded…
…because I really despise putting folded clothes away…
When I’ve gone hours and hours without a single uninterrupted thought…
And oh! How about breaking up fights all the time? That one really ranks high on my just-kill-me-now-it-would-be-more-pleasant list.
Anyway. ALL THAT TO SAY THAT I NEED MY MOVIES. Just one or two a
month week hour, s’il vous plaȋt, and like that I remain in control of my sanity. (Right now I’m watching Breaking Bad–again–because those addictions are worse than my addictions, plus it’s some of the best directing I’ve ever seen.)
I watch after the kids are in bed.
I watch with (sh!) my glass of wine.
So leave a comment, please! Fingers crossed that you win.
