Aroused (100)

Phoenix had worked for months to achieve a new identity. Now it seemed the efforts had been in vain. She could not stay here and risk being found out, her life depended on moving on.

The sheriff’s curiosity had been aroused by a single letter. It would not be long before he figured out she was a fugitive; it was time to move on; she could not take the time to tell anyone goodbye.

Why is Phoenix a fugitive? Who sent the letter that made the sheriff suspicious? Was the letter sent to the sheriff or did he find it accidentally? Would staying put Phoenix's life in danger or simply send her to prison?

The word is aroused, this offering comes in at 74 of the 100 word limit. This offering is brought to you by the Flash in the Pan challenge from the M3 blog; click on the underlined words to find 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.
