It can be anything from something I want to buy to some random issue/symptom the kids have. At the moment it's that my dd is really short - but it could also be a tb programme of type of diet or whatever.

I love nothing more than to curl up in bed in the evening with my iPad and Google/Pinterest the hell out of my current obsession.

My dh thinks is odd is it unreasonable to obsess over things?!

I do this too blush

Currently I don't have anything to obsess over - and I'm miserable. smile

I think that's normal! If it doesn't interfere with your happiness or distract you from DH or the kids then keep going, it's good to have something to focus on. I sometimes think I binge watch too many shows on an evening, but I love it and what would I do instead? Read a book, play a game, browse pinterest etc? It's all the same, getting lost inside our head for a bit and a break from word/kids. If you enjoy something and it's not harming anyone then carry on.. Does DH want more time with you or just want you to be doing something other than this?

No I don't think he really cares it's more of a running joke than a problem. He works late anyway so he wouldn't be here in the evenings to do anything else!

I'm soo like this, too! I also have a short dd, but don't think that's related grin

I do this too! My STBXH called them my 'fads' but now my new career is based on one of my 'fads'...
