fall has arrived and the new episodes of Grey's Anatomy have begun. I think I was a little disappointed tonight. Amy and I will have to discuss all the nuances and subtle plot undercurrents before I can make a final decision :-)
I'm just not sure what they will possibly do now that Meredith and Derek are going to try to live happily ever after - defying all the odds. Actually I am in the middle of rewatching Season 2 on DVD. Season 2 where there was much angst between Derek and Meredith as he tried to make his marriage to Addie work. And guess what? You may find this hard to believe but I was actually hoping that Derek and Addie WOULD work it out. That he would decide he loved her more than he loved Meredith. That he would forgive Addie and THEY would live happily ever after. I bet you never would have guessed that is the ending I was hoping for considering my romantic nature but really I liked Addie. She was strong and powerful and smart and beautiful and NOT whiny - where as Meredith WHINY. WHINY WHINY WHINY. "Pick Me. Choose Me. Love Me". Remember that? Pathetic - the girl was pathetic and besides what did it get her? He didn't pick her, choose her, love her - he picked his wife. Sure it was temporary but at least the guy tried - and he had my support - he must not have known that part :-)
Anyway, compared to Season 2 tonight's episode seemed to be a little lacking. Maybe I'm biased though since I just watched the Bomb Episode with adorable Kyle Chandler and the scene at the end when Derek comes to Meredith's house to make sure she is okay and she tells him all she could think about was that she couldn't remember their last kiss because she didn't know it was going to be the last kiss. But Derek - he remembered - and told her - but still didn't kiss her - just turned and sadly walked away (0kay, so maybe I got a little romantic about that scene and wasn't hoping for Addie any longer - it was my turning point :-)). But still - ANGST. So much ANGST. What are they going to do without all that angst???
I know I know - rambling when I should really be getting ready for my crazy busy weekend. Seriously I am only working a half day tomorrow then I'm going to help in the school lunchroom at noon then I'll come home and prepare for the party, go back to school to pick the girls up and take them to dance and then leave them in my parent's care, blah blah blah. And Saturday isn't much better, birthday parties, taking up the gifts at Church and a fund raiser in the evening. I'm going to need a nap on Sunday :-)
Have a fabulous Friday.and if you are in my neighborhood feel free to stop in. There will be plenty of food and drink and you know what they say - the more the merrier!
