I FORGOT My own name

Seriously, I got so stressed out this week that I literally forgot my own name. I was not amused then and I'm not amused now. My expenses are getting higher and my income is getting lower. I can not manage to keep enough time free to work or to figure out my savings plan. I did figure out one thing however.

My Rodeo can be junked instead of fixing it or trading it. It won't be that much but that money can be used to go toward the move. That takes care of the new light deposit with the city and possibly a crate for the dog to travel in and stay in over night. He is a good dog if not an expensive one. Although $10 a year for Rabis shots is not that bad at all. Three animals means $30 a year for them. That's not bad at all. I can use that figure to redo the budget entirely for the year.

Rent is going to be a strange adjustment after all these years. The last time I paid rent was approximately two years before my five year old was born. That's been about seven years ago I think.  Weekly rate hotels, a portion of the rent to live with friends. Little things like that because I was trying to make a living away from here because my options had been exhausted here or so I thought.

The lowest rental amount that I have seen so far is $200 a month. That's lower than monthly light bill right now. That's $2400 a year. I could have saved that a month back when I made decent money instead of just covering expenses. The order of things is simple, get the money to move. Reopen my savings account to have a place to put the money while I wait for all of it and somewhere that we can all go easily. I may have to go with a one bedroom and section off the living room. Although I found a 2 BR house for less than the one bedrooms.

Too much over $200 and we'll experience a large problem. I have the idea that I can actually make the bills provided I cut out some expenses. I have to get some sugar since we're all out. The animals need food. OK it's time to finish up so I can do more budgeting, planning and packing.

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.
