Weekend is Here Once Again and I'm Exhausted.

Today was spent mostly in the bathroom with Theresa, now that she's got the idea of potty training she's trying really hard not to have an accident. This means that she'll sit on the potty for an hour at a time to ensure that she was through using the potty. She's trying so hard and I'm so proud of her. While cleaning training pants is among my least favorite things to do it makes it a lot easier to potty train. I noticed that when I stopped taking her out in pull-ups she started staying dry longer while we were out and making more of an effort to use the potty when she's actually on it. The biggest problem? I seem to be one of a very few people that can tell when she has to go to the bathroom. That could end up creating a slight problem until I can help her to verbalize before the fact.

I have a bunch of laundry to catch up on. It's supposed to be 52 degrees tomorrow which means that all the laundry will be hung up inside. I have to dig out the clothesline to hang another one indoors because there isn't nearly enough room to dry all the laundry on what I have now. I lost my drying racks a couple years ago because they broke. I wouldn't mind training pants that have the plastic already attached but as you can see I'd have to order and order them.

Well, I've lost my thought completely so I'll be going now.

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?”
“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?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
