Additional Housekeeping

Friday afternoon I got word that today was the day that the owners/general managers, whatever they are would be here today. That mean extra housekeeping. Points are deducted if things aren't just so when they get here. Daily housekeeping, and not just straightening is actually required to live here in order for them to feel that this place is safe. This leads to an interesting scenario with an autistic child in tow.

It took a lot of effort to get Shorty to act like a child and stop massive OCD behavior. The behavior is still there in the form of not being able to touch her stuff; she is like me in this way. It makes putting her toys away while she is awake an interesting endeavor to say the least. 

All the trash had to be taken out, no dirty clothing in the bathroom floor and no clutter. Instead of bringing things in from the storage closet I put more things into it. The rearranging of furniture was postponed, and instead of moving my clothing I put toys and paperwork into the drawers that I had designated for them to go into. 

I am still short on shelving so I decided to make alternate stacking arrangements that will work for my purposes. I also discovered condensation on the floor, and how to fix it. It seems I have to keep the windows closed to prevent it. The entire floor gets wet since it completely tile, another reminder that I need rugs. 

The baby's rug should be placed back in her floor and left there to prevent it from getting to cold in there for her. 

Until next time may housekeeping not be an nightmare for you.

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?”
“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.
