Twas the Weekend Before Christmas

December 17, 2019

Twas the weekend before Christmas and things are a mess

I’ve been putting off what needs done, I willingly confess


Packages to wrap litter every room

If I don’t get my butt in gear, we’re surely doomed


Menu? What Menu? You mean I have to cook?

I was just settling in to work on my book!


I got the tree up and decorated and that was a win

But I waited so long it's almost time to take it down again


This whole thing used to be so much easier

Might have to do with me being a lot geezier


I do miss the old days with a house full of family

When rarely a year went by without a calamity


Most of the family has gone their separate way

Creating their own memories and traditions for the day


We have lots of photos (the real kind, mind you)

To remind us of the past - good, bad, and crazy - it’s true


And now another year is nearly done

but all in all it's been a pretty good one



Here’s wishing a very Merry Christmas to everyone

May the New Year bring health, happiness, and a ton of fun!
