Monday, Monday Monday

While, it is a holiday though it will not be entirely. We have a check-up and speech for the kiddo. That'll keep her from going stir crazy, we took a field trip to the laundry and a couple of stores Saturday. She nearly broke me between the cookies, video games, and toys from the irritation machine. Oh well, she earned them.

A little research after her dad came home and told me his phone was broken led to a change that eliminates the equivalent of a single cell phone bill each month. My cell phone in the meantime, as I find an alternative carrier I can live with would be pay by the minute at 15 cents per text and 20 cent per minute for calls. The amount of calling and texting I do would be rather limited at the moment, in an effort to spend less than $22 per month (with taxes) and ideally less than $11 a month (tax included) as I decide on a new carrier, which will of course involve the purchase of a new phone. I would be knitpicking or rather examining various phones and carrier options to see what my needs would be.

It's not much but it'll sure help. Especially as we continue through the nickel and diming that is school. Last Thursday I found out that the next day the kid was going to be able to go see a movie and get popcorn. Cost: $2, I let her spend her Christmas money on it. She had fun, these little outings are important to her. They make her feel like just another kid.

So far her school year is nickel and dime, through the year they have little fund raisers that are to help purchase new playground equipment; some of the existing equipment is broken and keeping the children off of it is difficult. My child while she can read will not typically tell me if she would like to participate in the fund raiser which include things such as the ability to go against the dress code and wear blue jeans or hats for a small fee.

Well, it's time to go. Anyone want to recommend a phone company? Preferabbly one without a contract, flexible plans and roll over minutes.

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.
