I hit play on the remote and watched for a minute or two. Huh? Wait a second? How come Stevie is in middle school? I swear last week ended with Nancy trying to get Conrad to come into the future. Hmm...perhaps I missed an episode. So, I checked on demand but nope, I was watching the right one.
I started the episode again, trying to really pay attention to see what was going on. I got about 10 minutes into the one hour long season finale and it hit me. this is it. this isn't the season finale, this is the series finale. wow. I think from that moment of realization on there were tears slowly trickling down. I was just really not prepared for this..
I've pretty much watched Weeds from the second season. I spent a day years ago watching all of season one to catch up (ahhh..to be young and live at home with your parents again..) and I was hooked. I've faithfully watched the show since then, for all 8 seasons, watching the Botwin's adventures and misadventures...and also watching the boys grow up. And by boys I mean Silas. Hunter Parrish. Who, by the way totally should have been cast for Peeta in The Hunger Games, but whatever, no one ever listens to me.

|hello! season 8|
Overall I think it was a good send off, and though from reading online many weren't too thrilled with the last minute or two when they just all sat there, I thought it was a lovely, bittersweet way to say good-bye. I was actually imagining that the actors were thinking about the past 8 seasons when they filmed that part...all just looking around, remembering, being together. So needless to say, the shock has not worn off and I think I might just start watching all over again from Season 1, yah know..with all my spare time. HA!
In other news, yarn wreath should be completed tonight. wahoo!!
UPDATE! I'm a total dork and decided to watch it again and realized that the final episode started off just liek the first one. I also really liked the reference she made to Shane about Pittsburgh and how she's very fond of him. okay..back to real life now. LOL
