Slowing it down

So, it has been more than a month since I made my way back to the United States from Russia and things have slowed down a bit.
It seemed that as soon as I got back, the schedule was full-bore with tons of playoff games and the finish of the regular season. I barely had enough time to catch my breath. I touched down in Boston on Monday, Feb. 24, and Tuesday, Feb. 25, I was back in the office and then back at basketball that evening, with the Prospect Mountain girls in the playoffs.
However, the last few weeks things have been slowing down a little bit. One by one, teams were eliminated from the playoffs and soon enough the season was over. The time between the winter and spring seasons usually isn't that long, but with this year's major snow coverage, it appears we might have a game or two before schools graduate in June. Therefore, I have been taking it easy, relatively speaking of course.
I covered some youth hockey with the Seacoast Hockey League and then hit up the She-Wolves Women's Hockey Tournament. These tournaments all took place on the weekends, so that left me with some time off during the week.
That time has allowed me to get to bed at a decent hour. It has also allowed me to start to catch up on the many television shows that I try to watch every week. I have way too many shows that I watch, some that I've been with for years (Survivor, Grey's Anatomy) and others that are fairly new (Nashville, The Blacklist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine). But one way or the other, I try to find a way to catch up and with the break in weekday action, that has been my opportunity. I caught up on probably the best show on television, Parenthood, earlier in the week and got started on a number of backlogged episodes of Nashville yesterday as well.
The only show that I make sure to watch on the night it actually airs is Survivor. I do everything in my power to avoid spoilers while I'm out and about on Wednesday and then watch as soon as I get home.
Needless to say, I am almost caught up, but sadly, every night seems to add another episode or two to watch.
