'Twas the Day After Christmas

'Twas the day after Christmas
and all through the house
boxes, wrappings, and bows
were littered about.


The stockings still hung
by the chimney with care
but goodies and gifts
were no longer there.


My one child was nestled
still snug in her bed;
she had stayed up too late
should've been sleeping instead.


And I in my PJs
sitting at my computer,
felt bad for my husband,
the workday commuter.

He had opened the office
always diligent it seems
so that people with new cars
could cover their insurance needs.

I knew in time
my vacation would end,
86 essays and grades
on me would depend.


But until then I'll sit here,
create, play, and pen
poems and greetings
for all my googleblog friends.


And then I'll find time
for some afternoon jogging;
scratch that, instead
I'll relax with my new "Artful Blogging!"

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas
and that your New Year will be a blessed one!

Fun...We used to have our Christmas tree in that same corner, but I inherited an awesome leather chair and ottoman this past year and it only fit in that corner so we had to find a home for the Christmas tree.

Cute poem!

The scrapblog book came from my very old Cameron Park Zoo Scrapblog. I think you can see it here:

Hope that shows.

Take care

Love it!

We had a 'clean out the boys' closet' kind-of-a day after Christmas! Nothing like new stuff to make you decide that some of the old stuff is gonna have to go!

(I must be feeling pretty sassy this morning, seeing as how I used the word 'gonna' in a lit teacher's comment box....) ;o)
Blessings!

Very fun poem and I loved the pictures. I did not know there was a magazine called Artful Blogging. I will have to look for that! So funny you got an ipod too. I sign up for the NPR song of the day, it gets email to me and I can listen to "new" music. There are some great artists out there that you don't here on the top 40 stations. Now I can find them on itunes and download! Have fun with your ipod.
