Rainy Monday

It's Monday and it's raining, so Rainy Monday it is. I am still sick, so I am staying in today I will go to the school tomorrow instead, and asked the speech therapist to call if she has a cancellation later in the week.


I would give into the urge to go lie down but since I have been coughing things up today I believe sitting up serves me the best. Instead of sleeping I am sitting at my desk thinking of the long soak in the tub I will indulge in once I have the energy to get up and find a change of clothes. Nice and hot with a scented candle and hopes that I do not set myself on fire.

I have managed to enroll in some more courses. They are all spaced out as to minimize stress and overlap while giving me something just for me. There is no chance of being sabotaged since there is no way anyone can cause problems that will derail my plans. 

Plans

The tax refund should be here shortly, and soon I will do the state taxes. The state amount is small enough it can wait. I have a few things to take care, then we all need a couple things and the rest is being set aside.

My entire budget is being redone to meet some goals I set, and I am beginning the process of typing up my latest WIP today. A couple of them went back to note form, and will be put in the word processor by the end of the week to see how much progress has been made on them. 

Well, my tub is calling me and I cannot resist it any longer.

Left

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?”
“Yes.”
“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.
