…I’ve been watching Army Wives for the last couple hours – and I think I’m addicted.
It’s been a lazy Sunday for me. I was very productive in the morning. I went to Zumba toning class with a friend and had a nice brunch. Afterwards, I came back home, put my pajamas on after a nice warm shower. Once I got real comfy and had Netflix playing, I thought I would watch the first episode of Army Wives. Season One is on Netflix and I’ve been seeing a lot of stuff floating around the Internet about the start of Season Seven, so I thought it would be good to see what all the fuss is about.
Before I became an Army wife myself, I was an Air Force brat. I’m very familiar with military lifestyle and even with that, I was never interested in watching the show. I always thought it would be an over the top dramatization of military life. Now that I’m following a lot of Army spouse-related sites and blogs, I’m hearing all about the all-new season. I figured I should at least watch the first-ever episode.
Well, four episodes in, I think I’m officially hooked. It will be awhile till I catch up to season seven, but now I feel compelled to watch!
The show does tend to highlight a lot of the really dramatic components, but there are a lot of relatable elements – and that’s what I think is drawing me in!
