Thursday Thoughts

This weekend is a 3 day weekend! That unofficial start of summer! Time for grilling and being outside. Last weekend we bought flowers (the usual petunias in white & purple) and transplanted the herbs and veggies we started in the dining room. Googer did an amazing job caring for our little plants while we were away. They look great! This year we bought a few herbs, too, to supplement the ones we started from seed.

Tonight is Game #7. I don't know if I can handle the hockey stress. Still trying to get over game 6.

We're still dealing with the 2 big mishaps from vacation. Despite having access to the park ranger police report, the car rental company has been asking SP for a statement via email. Problem is, he's not getting their emails, as he told them when they called, so he didn't know they wanted a written statement. They even verified his email and he still isn't receiving their requests. Grrrr.

As for the airline that broke my wheelchair, well, I have realized that nothing will make me OK (less angry) with what they did. I've had my chance to yell, berate, complain, vent, whatever you want to call it, and they've apologized but I do not feel less angry. Perhaps this is because every time I have contact with the airline, they have the facts wrong? Like emailing me about my electric wheelchair when it's manual and I've never said otherwise. Like asking if my seat belt extender was fixed when it's a brake extender and seat sling that were broken. The sheer level of incompetence leaves me exhausted and wanting this whole thing to go away and if I just give up any hope of any kind of compensation, it will, but it irks me that just because of dumb luck for them, they won't have to pay anything for rendering useless my personal, custom designed wheelchair on the first of 3 legs of flying.

Meals This Week:

  • Sloppy Joes 
  • Salad with shrimp (not grilled this time, just frozen & thawed, ready-to-eat tiny shrimp)
  • Dessert: Blondies

What We're Watching:

  • Everything. We were gone 2 weeks. There's a lot on the DVR.
  • We're letting Fargo, Genius, and Silicon Valley pile up for summer viewing.
  • Except for Gotham, we are caught up on everything else.
  • Really excited for the season finale of The Americans next week. What was Tuan thinking? And what's going to happen with Oleg?
  • Amazing Race. Can the teams form an alliance to get rid of that super annoying, whiny, high strung Brooke girl? If she cannot do something in 2 seconds, if it requires effort, sweat, time, she starts crying and whining. I do not know how her team mate can stand her.
  • Curious to see where Scandal and Grey's Anatomy go next season. I think next year is the last year for Scandal - ? I think it's time. The show has become a little too crazy and convoluted.
  • It was great to have Cat Grant back for the last 2 episodes of Supergirl. The show needs her back full time.

What I'm Reading:
Magazines. They piled up. I have a library book, too. I am slowly making my way through the magazine stack. Sadly, some have 2 issues stacked up.
