Preparing for Spring Break

Next week starts Spring Break, which means that including the weekends the kiddo will be home with me for a total of 9 days! I can't wait!

I am planning to get her help with going through her toys and such while she is home. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for her to be outside a couple hours a day running out her energy. The time change initially confused her.

A couple days after the change an overcast sky managed to have it rather dark outside when she went to get ready to catch the bus. She looked out the window and an innocence only a child can muster asked "where is the day?"

Trust me, it was precious. I had a problem with the time change too. I almost made her miss the bus because it was still dark when I went to get her out of bed. I didn't realize it was as late as it was. It's made for some interesting mornings.

I am in the process of hunting down a couple of school supplies for next year so that purchasing them doesn't take such a chunk out of my budget. I have a few Christmas gifts bought, seasonal things bought at clearance that the short kid will find cute. We have to get some therapy supplies, so we'll be searching her room to see what can be used there. We'll be putting her toys away too.

OK I have to go find the therapy supplies I misplaced. Have a nice day. This is the last week I get to go spend an hour at the school twice a week before the break. Then I get my baby dude home with me for a whole week!

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?
