House of Cards has taken over my tv

My wife loves a good Netflix binge. She likes watching certain shows but after those are over its Netflix time. If we start a series all of the nannies like they come over to eat dinner with us then they all watch with us. We are on Season 3 of House of Cards. I had heard about it a little but I didn’t know what it was.

It’s too dark for me. The characters are always screwing people over, being bullies, and lying to push their own agenda. Wow, sounds like the trolls Lol I just realized that. Probably why I don’t like that show much. My wife says this is what lawyering can be like if you let your moral compass go. She has not. She works very hard to prosecute people for breaking the law. It’s been her life long dream and she’s living it. Good for her. Seeing her watch this show and try to figure out the next move is why I watch it. She enjoys talking about it even after we flip it off for the night. At that point I am ready to do or discuss something else but if she likes it, okay.

Have you guys seen that one? I know that Season 5 is going to start soon that’s why she’s bingeing. We should have it done by next week. We can only get in 2 or 3 episodes a night. We start watching after the boys are down. Alex is my pop up baby. I get him down, everyone is chill, then he pops back up and wants more cuddle time. It takes me about 45 minutes to get him down. Sarah is adjusting his nap schedule a little. They are still taking 2 naps a day but now they are short naps. About a half hour. She doesn’t want them to sleep too much so they are up at night. It’s worked out with some minor adjustments. The show is very plot driven. All twists and turns that you never see coming. I’ve figured out by now if something has a dark, murderous plan behind it, Frank is obviously the one that put things in motion.

The acting is very, very good. I hope the 2 leads have received many awards. They are believable. They have done a great job making the characters their own. I like politics but it’s not something that I have enjoyed lately. Trump has pretty much ruined all hope. I really do believe he will be impeached or quit before they get to that point. When things get tough, he whines some more than gives up. That’s who he is. It’s been a waste of policy. So many great things could have been done by now. He stalls all progressive movements and only cares about things that cost us all more money. This guy is a dumbass.

House of Cards has invaded my house and we can’t stop watching. I hope it has a happy ending but I don’t see how. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I have had 2 out-of-town trips this week. Both quick and successful. Yesterday was my wife’s luncheon that she warned me a hundred times do not be late for. Guess what. I was late. She was fiery pissed at me and I was told we would talk about it when she got home. Oh boy did we. It wasn’t a fight it was more of a very calm You can not do that again discussion. I told her we hit traffic and I literally ran in there and sat down next to her. I apologizes while the speaker was talking and she grabbed my thumb immediately and hurled it backwards to let me know I’m in deep shit Lol When I realized I was going to be late I had my secretary hand deliver 2 dozen roses to her office while we attended the luncheon. That way she would get back and realize I knew how badly I had F’ed up. The card was a very huge apology of sweetness and I’m sorry I will do better. She appreciated it and that’s probably what stopped it from becoming a big fight.

This is another reason why I will be retiring after this year. My wife needs my support. She has a lot going on the next year and a half before we move and she wants to finish strong. She has not yet decided if she will continue being a career lawyer or she will begin a new legal career in Paris. She is looking into it. She is very excited to move. She’s going to miss everyone but she said it will be the adventure of a lifetime and as long as I promise to move us all back if needed, she’s looking forward to it.

Guess who doesn’t want us to go? My nannies. When my wife and I decided we are going to move in 2018 I offered them all to join us. They have school and I knew at some point we would be losing each one. Sarah has been the most vocal about why are we moving. She doesn’t want us to go. I told her it’s what we want for our family. She gets it but she doesn’t like it. I promised to fly her over to come visit a few times a year. It’s not me she’s going to miss its my boys. She is so attached to them I really don’t know how we are going to do this. But we need to do it before they have the cognitive memories of everything. That way all of their memories will be of our life in Paris.

My last huge update is that…no I’m not ready to share that yet Lol We have big news but I’m going to wait just a little longer! It’s all good, don’t worry.

Have a great, what day is it? Thursday! A lot of people are having last day of school stuff this week. I’m happy for all of my friends’ kids who are finishing up and getting ready to enjoy their summer. Good luck with that. I pray every day for all of you. I’m glad to see how many loyal readers and friends I still have coming here. I appreciate you all staying around. It’s not a big flashy life story but I’m working on that.

Happy Thursday!
