Tablecloth (100)


“Cheeseburger, fries, coke.”



“Anything else?”

“Honey bun, heated with cheese.”

“Cheeseburger, fries, coke and a honeybun with cheese. Got it.”

Hopefully the food would be better than the atmosphere. Eating somewhere with peeling paint and broken chairs wasn’t her first choice but it would have to do. She had brought her own tablecloth; the looks were priceless but at least it was clean.

Why is she eating somewhere with peeling paint and broken chairs? Is it the only place to eat in town? Why is she carrying around a tablecloth?

Remembering

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.

Saturday Evening Post

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.
