I’m a Cheater. There, I Said It. #StreamTeam

I cheat.

A lot more than I would like to admit.

I give myself extra points on my Weight Watchers app for cleaning my house because my kids are extra dirty.

I Google phrases like “another word for beer” for my other writing job so I sound smart.

And I watch shows that I know my husband would like to watch alongside me alone because I cannot wait.



 Side note- Mike and I watch This Is Us every week. Some weeks are good and some are bad but recently it was REALLY good and he was out-of-town on business. You know what I did? I watched it ahead. DO NOT TELL HIM. Then I acted like I hadn’t seen it before. DO NOT TELL HIM. I know this has nothing to do with Netflix but it’s for reference, see? Because there is nothing on Netflix beyond Gilmore Girls or Stranger Things that I am binge-ing and I don’t lie to all of you here.


I know I am not the only one. I know you all are sneaky little boogers watching your shows ahead with the blanket over your head with a tub of chocolate chip cookie dough.

Or you are waiting until everyone leaves for the day and watching in broad daylight with the window blinds open?

You are one saucy minx.

Netflix even made a cheating tutorial for you.

Suuure, they have time to make videos but no time to get 90210. I read you loud and clear.

My favorite cheat is Gilmore Girls and Stranger Things.
Even though Mike doesn’t watch Stranger Things.

But if I was gonna cheat, it would be Stranger Things.

It would also be 90210.

That was a dig.

I’m not bitter.

I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.

    I maintain fidelity by having shows that I don’t share. There are definitely couple shows (currently The Man in the High Castle, because we like to make ourselves feel even creepier about our current political situation, I guess) and me shows (almost done with Parenthood, which I mostly binged my way through). Glad to know I’m not the only one who struggles. 🙂

    Another word for beer….lol!! Hulu, Netflix, Amazon. I’m a run around too. TV tramps. Your humor is my favorite. I relay your content to my family and entertain us all. Happy Saturday!

    You made me laugh out loud. I love your sense of humor. My daughter just walked in and said what is SO funny. 😉 Happy weekend!

      I binge watched it this summer while he was in another room watching baseball or some junk.
      Like, finished it in six-ish hours binged it.
      He started it with me the following week but our eight year old daughter woke up from a nightmare and we haven’t gone back.
      So I am going to make him watch it before the next season because I can’t watch it alone again.

    Australian Netflix is different so I had to google This Is Us to see what the fuss is about – I almost choked on my own tongue! MILO VENTIMIGLIA! sweats I have the hugest man-crush on him.

    Oh yeah, and while we’re on the topic of cheating I once photoshopped dog poop out of my outdoor pics and hit post. I was THAT LAZY I didn’t pooper the yard before taking the photos. Zero regrets.

      So many things to say. First, my almost 17 year old daughter wants to visit Australia so badly. I do too but that plane ride……man.
      Second, have you ever watched Gilmore Girls??? One word: Jess.

      I love you Kate. I feel like you might be my Australian soul mate.

      • Kate Hollingsworth

        First: come to Australia. Do it. You and your daughter can crash on my couch 🙂

        Second: Jess. Oh Jess I love you so very much. The way he lingered at the window in the latest season … oh mate, he’s gonna make such a good baby daddy.

        Third: the very first time I read one of your posts I thought “this crazy lady is my spirit-turtle,we must be friends immediately”
