And all through the house,
The creatures are making messes, three kids and my spouse,
The stockings aren't hung, they've been tossed on a chair,
We have yet to see Santa at River Park Square.
There are ornaments scattered across the floor,
No wreath, lights or boughs hanging on the front door.
Thanksgiving pumpkins still adorn my table,
To say I don't procrastinate would be quite a fable.
I've neglected my duties writing for the blog,
But it hasn't been parties and drinking eggnog,
That have kept me from keeping up writing to you,
It's a plethora of projects that are making me blue.
Why, every year, do I hand-make my gifts?
There's never enough time and it's giving me fits!
For the record I declare, I officially hate pinterest!
So many great projects to capture my interest.
Our cards are not sent, the tree is not half trimmed,
Still, I will not let my spirits be dimmed!
I will work until midnight to Bing's Christmas music,
I will drink loads of coffee and most likely get sick.
I will wrap up the presents, keep on a smile,
Bake cookies, wear ugly sweaters with style!
I may neglect blogging to enjoy some time with my kids,
I'm glad you checked in today, very glad that you did.
If you don't hear from me very often these days,
Know that I wish you the happiest of holidays!
Glad tidings and blessings and merry, merry wishes,
I'm off to change diapers and wash up the dishes.
