Listless (75)


The evening sun was sinking quickly, Anna paced quickly back and forth. The waiting was torture; he did not deserve to be here. She should have been on that plane. Richard took her place, and now she waited for news that she was not sure she could take.

She grew listless flipping through the magazines. The doctor finally came out and the look on his face made her certain that the news was not good.


Did the plane crash? Why did Richard take her place? Is the news as bad as she thinks it is?

The word is listless, and the limit for January is 75 words. This post comes in at exactly that. Click the link to see Red's guidelines.

Remembering

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.
