laundry and McDreamy

I guess it's time I do some laundry.  Right after I finish this post. 

Grey's Anatomy is back on tonight so while I am watching, I will fold the laundry that has been sitting in the dryer for a week.  Yes, a week.  Lugging the laundry to and from the garage is not that big of a deal, but I hate doing it.  For one, my laundry baskets are the rectangle shaped ones that sort of fit through the door, but I almost always slam my fingers. 

SR and I had an agreement that he would put the laundry in the wash and dryer and bring it to the bedroom, and I would fold and put it away.  That lasted a few months, but seems to have stopped.  So I'm back to doing it.  It gives me a good excuse to watch TV though.  It seems to be one of the few times that I don't feel bad about locking myself in my room to watch TV- because I'm also doing chores, see?  Win/win

Tonight we had hamburgers for dinner.  Another easy family favorite.  Since I am out of propane I made them on my griddle.  Yes, I know I get a fail for that- but I am not in the mood to get more propane and nobody really can taste the difference.  If they can, they never say anything.

It IS kind of gross when you make them on the griddle because I buy the store bought burgers and so when you cook them, that meat slime always forms from the fat and water and meat juice- or whatever that is.  I usually just tear it off and scoop it into the trash so if anyone comes into the kitchen and sees the burgers on the griddle they don't get immediately grossed out.  I like that I don't really have to defrost anything, just put them on frozen and they defrost and then cook.  Easy.  And you know how I love easy.

I am still out of onions so no onions on SR's burger tonight, but he didn't make a fuss.  I really do not like having to go to the store to buy one thing.  It's almost a trap.  I can't remember the last time I went in to buy ONE thing and only actually bought ONE THING.  There's always SOMETHING on sale, or that I walk past and think, "Oh I'm out of that."  Of course if I need it, it's not wasted money- but I like to have an idea in my head about how much money I'm going to spend before I walk into any store.  So if my plan is to buy an onion for $1 and I walk about spending $13 because I also picked up some 12-packs of soda- that is a failed trip. 

We spend a lot of money on soda actually.  I drink a lot of soda, at least two a day, sometimes more- but that is nothing compared to SR.  He has at least 5 or 6 a day.  If I cut him open, I'm certain he would bleed Dr. Pepper.  However I always try to get the best price, and that is .25 per can.  Occasionally it will go on sale at 4-12pks for $11 which is about .23 per can.  You would think that would last me a week or two, but between SR, myself and the one soda a day that Jerkface has, it lasts about 4-5 days.  I know, I know..... 

Ok- 7 minutes to Grey's Anatomy.  I swear I hope Meredith is not whiny and obnoxious this season.  Listen, you love McDreamy, you HAVE McDreamy.  Don't freak out every time things are not perfect.  NOTHING is perfect.  It's been 10 seasons, it's time you figure that out.
