Flash Fiction: Figures

The calculations were enough to make him cringe. His ex-wife had taken almost a third of his inheritance in the divorce cutting his lavish lifestyle to nothing. His accountant had shown him the figures but he had to go through them himself to believe it. He had never imagined that she would betray him. The audit was going to be a nightmare.

Why is he being audited? How did he not notice a third of his inheritance going missing until the accountant pointed it out?

The word is figures and this post comes in at 62 of the 75 word limit set by the M3 blog for “Boys and Their Toys” which is the theme of the next flash in the pan book.

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.
