95% of our weekend was consumed by ‘Making a Murderer.’ Yes, you read that right…95%! If we weren’t watching an episode, we were talking about it. I even dreamed about it on Saturday night.
In case you haven’t heard about it yet, ‘Making a Murderer’ is a newish Netflix docuseries. I don’t want to give anything away, but VERY broadly it’s about corruption, law enforcement, and the justice system.
Vishnu and I had no intention of watching all 10 hour long episodes this weekend. And considering that he only got home at 7 pm on Friday, was home all day Saturday, and had to work on Sunday, it’s quite impressive that we did indeed finish!
Here’s how the weekend of ‘Making a Murderer’ went down…
Like I said, Vishnu got home around 7 pm on Friday night. I had just started making this green curry, so we ended up chatting and cooking together (my fav!).
This is a delicious curry by the way! The only change I made was adding yellow squash and mushroom and omitting the carrots.
As soon as we sat down to eat, Vishnu asked if I wanted to watch an episode of ‘Making a Murderer.’ I immediately said yes. And the craziness started! We watched the first two episodes that night.
Saturday started off a little later than usual since Vishnu had the day off. We woke up, made breakfast, and started back up with the show again. I honestly can’t remember how many episodes we watched during each stretch, but it was definitely more than one and maybe even two!
You guys, by the end of the night, we were done. Eight plus hours of ‘Making a Murderer’ were consumed on Saturday! All I can say is it’s just that captivating and interesting and infuriating.
I did manage to squeeze in a long run on Saturday afternoon. I needed some fresh air!
Love my water views!
Sunday was a bit more productive! I woke up early with Vishnu so that I could drop him off at the hospital. A few hours later, I went to TJs to grab some groceries for the week (I only went above our $75 budget by a dollar or two!). I also cleaned the apartment from top to bottom, went for an hour long walk, made a Costco run, did some planning for my sister’s bachelorette party (we’re going to Austin!), and went through some work emails to prevent feeling overwhelmed this morning.
And that’s it. That was our weekend!
Bottom line – if you haven’t watched ‘Making a Murderer’ yet, do it soon. And don’t forget to set aside your entire weekend when you do!
