Tuesday's Ramblings

It's Tuesday and I'm rambling again. We had a good speech session, I watched and wrote a bit because she was doing so well. Tomorrow she goes to preschool for half a day. She'll be home just in time to eat a little bit of lunch and to go to therapy. I realized today that I have $6 in cash for gas and $6 in my bank account. It's only the 16th and we have 7 more days of therapy to get to.

I bought pull-ups last night and that small pack has to last as long as possible. My husband for the moment gets paid next week, out of that he has to pay at least one week of his child support that is behind to stay out of jail and put gas in his car to get to work the next week. We a couple things here but some of them will just have to wait.

My two rescued cats are almost out of food once again. They are going threw twice as much since they're outside. The neighbors cats seem to be coming to eat. I think I have to figure out how to get the food concealed so that just my two can find it. I want a new home or at least one the roof doesn't leak on and that's on a foundation because of the storms we have here. I can't stand tornado watches or warnings. I don't care to act out the scene from "The Wizard of Oz" where the house flies through the air.

I wanted a house that was paid for when it was built, I have a feeling to do that I'll have to downsize a great deal. At the moment we'd be in a three room shack to make it a reality. I need new furniture anyway, although I'm not ready to be limited to a couch, kitchen and closet size bathroom.

I was looking through some old pictures and I miss the days that I cared enough to put my makeup on, do my hair and could afford to buy nails just to take the picture. One day maybe I'll do my make up again, but before I invest in anymore I need to get new glasses along with a new eye exam. That may have to wait until the rear brakes on my truck and the $1,000 plus dollars worth of debt that we ended up in have caused. I know my divorce has to wait I'm making sure that he takes care of the mess he caused if I have to put up with him another year. He just doesn't know the divorce is off, only postponed.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
