Will Margo figure out Craig's plans? (Soaps.com)

As The Week Turned
December 8 – December 12

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade.
— Shakespeare

Oh, as great as Shakespeare is, even if Jack or Janet quotes this particular poem, we know that their eternal summer is going to be really short-lived, don’t we?
Oh with the blog!

The Wedding Plans

We touched on this a little bit last week – how Janet needs to get a grip – so I won’t dwell on that aspect. But, seriously, the woman needs to get a grip! Not with the wedding plans now, but what bride at 24 hours and counting tells her groom he can still back out? What woman does that? I would never have said that to my husband and if he had said something like that to me we wouldn’t have been drinking champagne two minutes later. First she wants the big wedding to impress her family. Now she’s telling Jack he can still go back to Carly? This girl needs to figure out what she wants and fast!

There was a huge furor about Carly showing up at Janet’s bachelorette party. On the one hand, I agree with Janet fans. Why would she be there? Obviously the place was closed down for a private party; Carly could have figured out what the party was for – and probably would have been told about it by Henry beforehand anyway. So why would she show up? And, having shown up, why would she stay? On the other hand, it is her bar and if Henry didn’t say anything, it makes sense that she would show up. I’m still not sure on the sticking around part, but at least she has a reason for showing up.

Then there is the whole Jack-begging situation. Carly, sweetie, you need to let the man go. We know you love him (and could Maura West and Michael Park been any more on than they were on Thursday?), but he’s moved on. Telling him that you still love him and crying on his shoulder is just playing in to his ego. I say get yourself a new man, Carly. Take a cue from Emily and see if you can distract Dusty from Jennifer/Josie for a blip or two. Or go out on a limb and pick up a new guy! There have to be more than Snyder men running around Oakdale these days!
