Ecstatic (75)

Streamers and balloons dropped from the ceiling as the class walked in. Mrs. Wright stood back with a smirk; it had taken months to put the celebration together. The awards were hidden behind the curtain, concealed in innocent looking cartons.

Students were whispering, wondering, until one of them pointed out the banner over the stage. Screams of excitement filled the room. The group was ecstatic as it became clear to them.

Why are there awards hidden behind the curtain? What is the celebration for? Are the students expecting something they'll enjoy?

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
