Back to Work!!


It has been two weeks since my computer tore up. I have it back temporarily at the moment and am able to work. In fact I began the process of lowering bills already. My mother has had it for two weeks and finally said it was working well enough that I can use it. It is humming but it connects to the Internet and it stays on. I have to make up for the last two weeks and if I am online I find myself easily distracted so I decided to work offline while I catch up.

I even lowered my Internet bill for the time being. My mother purchased some groceries and gave me some money since I had been out of work and did not have a payday this past week. I put the groceries away figuring that we could make them last a few weeks and then I began the budgeting of the money that she gave me. First thing was to get my television out of the pawnshop, $62.50. (My youngest had been promised the Peanut Festival on Special Citizens Day)

She had a blast dragging me on rides that made me feel older than I realized I was as I got dizzy every time. Her father (my soon to be ex) watched and laughed the whole time. She ended up with a $5 frog when the man held the balloon so that she could just pop it with the dart. Somehow I we missed lunch because I was tired and dizzy causing us to sit down and lose track of time. Oh well.

I also invested in a portable Internet device and purchased one GB of Internet for $20. I figure that I can use that much easily and get a lot of work posted while I wait for mother to pick my computer back up to finish fixing it. My keys are sticking but I saw a keyboard for $10 that would be easier for me to use than the flat keyboard that is on it. There is an option for $10 Internet that would have me spending approximately $40 a month, $50 a month would get me unlimited access but I can not afford that right now. I spent more than I should on the device but I had to get back to work.

It took almost $60 to fill the tank on my Rodeo to get us back and forth for hopefully the next two weeks. I changed my phone to 20 cents a minute and placed $10 on it to use in an emergency. It was better than leaving it off I just had to disable incoming text messages to make it work. I don’t have to pay the bill again until the 8th of February so let’s hope I can stretch that $10 out some to make it easier for a while.

I refigured my basic expenses and I have a better understanding of what I need to do. That is a post for another day. I have to get back to work ASAP. I’m running back and forth from the housework to the keyboard to make sure I don’t get bored sitting in one spot.It has been two weeks since my computer tore up.

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?
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.
