Thursday Thoughts

It's been a busy week. I survived a trip to the dentist. It was a routine check up/cleaning but oh my gosh do I despise having my teeth cleaned. Thank goodness I don't have any problems that need to be fixed.

I visited with my mom and she did the ironing when she was here. I don't like ironing. I am a slow ironer. I am not a good ironer. I put lots of unwanted creases in things. Oops. Mom is an excellent ironer. And fast. She zipped through 4 pants & 5 shirts in the time it would have taken me to figure out how to position a pair of pants so as to not add an extra crease down the front (and then I probably would have anyway).

I also got to visit with M. I hadn't seen her in a year. So nice to catch up.

In other news this week, I'm attempting to survive the noise from the gas line upgrade. Oh my gosh the noise. It started last week and it has been all this week, the sounds of clanging pipes, jack-hammering, construction vehicle beeping, oh the beeping, the loud rumblings and droning noises, the shouting, the restricted traffic on the street, the flag man standing right outside our house, staring into our front window as he directs traffic. So much loud noise. Earlier today I resorted to earplugs.

Instead of blog stuff, my computer time has been all about vacation planning and new purchases research. We knew that this year we'd be looking at 2-3 "big" purchases and we'd hoped to put them off until late summer/fall, but recent developments have forced us to consider earlier than planned purchases. So, lots of research. Thus far I've managed to just confuse myself with possibilities and ratings and now I am thinking, hmmm, we can put this off another year, right? The answer is, sadly, not really.

What We're Eating:

  • Quiche Lorraine & salad
  • Meatloaf, pierogies, and salad
  • Dessert: Blondies

What We're Watching:

  • Spring Baking Championship. A contestant I really like was eliminated and the one I really don't like is still there. Boo.
  • The Americans! What did Phillip do??!!!! And Paige - what is going on there? Did she have to do that in the bar?
  • McMafia ended. I guess there are plans for a season 2? It was a good show and I enjoyed it, but it was almost too much of a slow, low key, simmering burn that ended with not much of a bang.
  • I'm not sure what I'll do with myself tonight. Scandal is done. HTGAWM ended its season. I gave up on Quantico a long time ago. Station 19 isn't really grabbing my attention. I have only Grey's Anatomy now on Thursdays.

What I'm Reading:

  • I got through 2-3 magazines, but there is still a pile of 4-5.
  • No books this past week.
