2305 – Sunday Digest: The Week in Review

2305 – Sunday Digest: The Week in Review

Do you ever just need a moment to yourself. Of course I found a way to make it backfire on me. I’ve been back in the office for a couple of months now but working in my own office in isolation. The workload isn’t much different from when I was at home so I’m not sure why I was needed back so desperately. That decision was out of my hands but we make do as necessary.

Anyway, last Sunday I left a couple of hours early and stopped for some food at a local restaurant to take in the Leafs/Capital (hockey) and Chiefs/Bengals (football) games, simultaneously. I sat in the corner alone with my mask on except when eating. The bill was surprisingly reasonable, certainly on par with some fast food joints I may have stopped at and eaten while driving and the quality was way better. The problem is I may have forgotten to mention it to my partner who believed I was still at work. Of course, me being oblivious left the receipt in my work pants. Needless to say, she found it and rightly so, I’ve been relegated to the doghouse. Nothing foul was afoot and it seemed so insignificant at the time, but it was still a breach of her trust.

Truth is I just needed a moment to myself. If I’d told her, I’d have had to pick her and the kid up and bring them along or I’d have been asked to bring home an expensive takeout order, not that the cost was a concern, I just didn’t want to be saddled with a chore and expectations. I just needed a moment, lost in the noise and in my thoughts. I was wrong not to tell her but a part of me thinks it’s time we’d have been apart anyway.

It was nice to have a little more normal week on the blog, here are some of the highlights…

Five Word Weekly Challenge

Lots of great responses this week…

Linger With Me is a beautifully romantic poem written by ladysighs.

The Monster in the Back Room is a cheeky monster tale written by Joanne the Geek.

Life’s Real Purpose and Adulthood is a harrowing tale of monotony, life’s grind and taxes by Chel Owens.

Dishes a tale of newly realized freedom by Paula at Light Motifs II

Gossip Girls is a poem about not liking gossip unless of course, it’s about someone else by Sadje at Keep It Alive.

Four Line Fiction Challenge

They said if you build it they will come. Not so much for the inaugural Four Line Fiction challenge but if I’m anything it’s not a quitter. Perseverance is said to be the trait of champions. I provided the only entry this week…

Out Of The Cold, was my contribution to this new weekly challenge. Hopefully its more than me next week.

More highlights from Greg’s Blog…

The Nightbird | Written for Shay’s Word Garden.

My First Computer | Written for WordPress Daily Prompt

In Between | Written for Denise’s Six Sentence Stories.

Another Person’s Trash | Written for Carrot Ranch’s Story in 99 Words.

11. Revenge: The Bonding | The eleventh installment of the Revenge Series written for Sammi Scribbles Weekend Writing Prompt.

Around the Blogosphere…

Here are some other great clicks this week…

Follow 9 | Liz H. at Valley of the Trolls | Another installment in the Follow series. Liz always has compelling serials to follow.

Inside the Tree | Bridgette Tales | A story that draws you in and won’t let go until the very end.

Hollow Man | Fandango at This, That and the Other| A poignant piece about chasing material success at the cost of everything else.

Her Crime Murder | Diana Coombes aka Writer Ravenclaw | A tale of murder and daring escape!

Homo sapiens | Hobbo | Someone mentioned the late great Hobbo this week and I went back and read a bunch of his work. It seemed appropriate to add one here. If you haven’t read Hobbo’s works I highly recommend you have a gander.

Just keep clickin! There was so much other great stuff out there this week but not enough time or room to fit it all in here.

Next week…

One week until the Super Bowl for all you football fans. For me its just an excuse to eat chili and chicken wings! Chiefs and Eagles fans will be going crazy.

Look for another Five Word Weekly on Monday and the second installment of the newly minted Four Line Fiction on Thursday. Hopefully this weeks image gets the creative juices flowing. At some point during the week the next installment for the Revenge series will drop using the prompt word key.

Have a great week,

      You are right Sadje. I am not sure what happened. I piece together a draft of the Sunday Digest as the week unfolds and a couple of links appear to have vanished. Lost in an unsaved draft or deleted in error. They have been re-added now.
