Saturday's Plans

Today is Saturday, or it will be when this goes live. The hope for today? Well that would be to make it to the library with that short kid, provided she feels well enough and get her a library card before her field trip next month. They are going to the library as part of the trip. It's all local so she'll be close and actually get to go places in this town I've never bothered to go, like the art museum. Of course that could be because I didn't realize we had one. What? This place is so boring you don't think of it having anything half resembling culture. There are some restaurants downtown that I'm tempted to try but parking is awful for them. 

Provided my will to get up and go to the laundromat was not good yesterday, I'll be forcing myself to do that today. I will not be taking all of the clothes though. Just the kids, some towels, bath clothes and a few of ours. I have to wash a comforter and that's going to take half the drying budget so they clothes gets to come home to hang out. It's not convenient to drive to through with wet clothes hoping that nothing goes wrong but it saves me a bit of money at the laundromat. 

I have to invest in an extra large washing machine so I can do the comforters at home without overloading the machine. I'm exhausted from all the back and forth but it might be worth it.

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?
