Contemplative (150)

“When are you leaving?” Ryan asked unsure if he wanted an answer.

“I don’t know,” Maria quietly replied.

Puzzled, Richard asked, “What do you mean you don’t know?”

“I mean that I have no idea when I am leaving, at this point I have no idea where I’m going.”

Ryan decided it best to leave Marie alone at that, walking out he could not help but wonder if he was a factor in her staying longer. He could hope after all that they had been through.

Hours passed before Ryan returned to find Maria staring out the window appearing contemplative. He was well aware that time spent mediating was healing.

Why is Marie leaving? Why is Ryan so concerned with her leaving? Does Ryan want her to go? Will Marie stay?

The word is contemplative the limit was set at 150 as part of the M3 Flash in the Pan series. This post is only 110 words. Check the link for the details.

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.

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.
