I can't wait 'til it gets here but I'm just not not ready!
My shopping's not finished no presents are wrapped
My credit cards' cancelled and my bank account tapped.
(Not the only rhyme that came to mind there...)
The ornaments, tinsel,
lights white, green, and red
The house is all empty, I'm
alone in my plight,
And measured and sweated and went through gyrations.
Through blisters and burns I hummed Christmas songs,
And just around midnight the heat was back on!
(Not bad for a computer geek who almost failed shop class!)
'Twas 4 days before Christmas, the problem's not licked,
The leak that was bypassed, still must be fixed.
Another day spent on my hands and a knee,
And there in my den stands that bare Christmas Tree!
(And looking more Charlie Brownish every day.)
'Twas 3 days before Christmas, thank God I have patience!
I still haven't shopped or hung decorations.
The sinks' full of dishes, no cleaning's begun,
And the Kernville Newsletter still isn't done.
(I'm still not sure I actually volunteered for that job.)
But no matter, it's Wednesday! My favorite weekday,
For on every Wednesday my kids come to play.
Tonight I'll work late, and tomorrow be busy,
But nothing else matters while my children are with me.
(Hear that? That's not Dasher prancing on your roof.
It's me doing the "Happy Dance"! Woohoo!)
