Goals for Remainder of 2015

There are some things that I want to achieve and some things that I need to achieve before the close of 2015. I have already achieved the finalization of my divorce and being restored to my maiden name of Childree. The name on my books now matches, it seems I knew then that one day I would reclaim my name. 

What else would I intend to achieve this year?

Fun Goals

1. Decorating Shorty's backpack. Instead of purchasing a new one for the upcoming school year she has agreed to keep the one from last year. Provided of course we can decorate it. This will be fun project for us during the last couple of weeks of summer vacation.

2. Picture frames for some of her art work and posters for her wall. She would want to decorate her room, since we cannot make a permanent change we will put up items that are easily removable and decorate her furniture as we find the needed items to do so. We will also decorate the items we need to make her room more storage friendly for a small child.

3. Decorate the living room and kitchen with simple items. 

4. Play all the levels of at least one mindless game.

Personal Goals

1. Fit back into the pants size I wore last summer.

2. Buy a new charger for Shorty's tablet.

3. Have an awesome holiday season.

The most important goal is missing from this list. I wish to move us into a small house so that I can fix the yard up for Shorty. She would enjoy a fenced in yard to keep her safe and ensure that she could have enough space to put a small raised bed garden to care for. Until next time I hope that you are clear on what you want to accomplish and that you are making progress.

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.
