Holiday Vacation Not Actually A Vacation

The school week ends at mid day on Friday to start the Christmas vacation. It is not a vacation for us. We have dentist, doctor and speech appointments. I rarely get a vacation that is a vacation, and even rarer a day off that is not due to illness. In between Christmas and appointment my youngest child has a birthday, the oldest birthday has already past and my step child's is in January. Meanwhile I had neither gas nor postage to get my oldest her birthday present, and Christmas is slim for her. Sure she has grandparents that will buy her tons, she's a hard little thing to buy for. The baby has people that are buying her stuff, and she's sure to love it because they know her better than her grandparents ever imagined knowing her.

I do believe that I have everyone where they should be. There has so far only been one Christmas/Birthday card, whatever it was returned unopen to people far to ignorant to comprehend the meaning of the words "no contact" but there ignorance is not fully my problem. I'm just bitchy determined enough to file charges if they persist in contact.

Well, ranting about them isn't getting these pages organized, allowing me to copy old post and move them hear to get rid of excessive blogs.

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.
