The Game is On

“You have the grand gift of silence Watson”—- this movie should be pretty easy to guess

So I have developed a… slight…. obsession with Sherlock the tv show.

I basically have this on 24/7

Which has actually turned into a general obsession with Sherlock Holmes. I have always been a reader, but after having kids it’s hard to concentrate on a book.

Toddlers are deadly to books!

What is also getting in the wayof my reading, is my desire to have a clean house or lesson planning for homeschool or creating my art pieces, blogging, making YouTube videos and everything else I need to squeeze in while Tobias sleeps. So I started LISTENING to books!!

I do realize that audiobooks have been around for awhile but I had never listened to one before because I was pretentious and thought that reading the book was better.

If you pay for Amazon Prime you get access to Prime Reading and they actually offer FREE audio books! So while I am doing one of the 1000 things in my life I can actually listen to the stories

It’s been great hearing the actual stories and compare them to the episodes!!

My husband actually introduced me to Sherlock when we first moved in together and at first I was like, ehhh… it’s ok. But as the seasons progressed and as I got to know the characters I fell in love! And my oldest son loves the show too, so it gives us an opportunity for some adultish conversation.

Because my husband loves me, he indulges in my obsessions and he took me to see the Sherlock Holmes exhibit at the state museum.

Creepy kids
We got to see props and solve a murder
It was a fun and interactive experience
My hubs got me a new coffee mug
I’m Sherlock Holmes! I wear the damn hat.

Do you have any shows that you love or shows that have inspired you to read?

The answer is Snow White!!

I am a re-married mom of 3 kids, 2 cats and 5 rats!! I have started an art business with my mom, I am a part time dog and baby sitter. My husband and I just bought a house and we are figuring out homeownership, marriage and parenting a baby (again for me... it's been awhile) together. This blog is just for fun to talk about our journey; the trials and tribulations of everything we have going on!
