'Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving...

'Twas the night before Thanksgiving
And all through the house
Every creature was stirring
Except for the mother
Who could have been stirring
Preparing and cooking
But instead was blogging
And facebook stalking.
The holiday cookies half-gone, quite delicious
The merry pile of unwashed, crusty dishes
(you like that don't you, delicious, dishes...)
The table covered with crap in all shapes and sizes
The laundry unwashed, nearly a crisis.
But fortunately this house is not hosting Thanksgiving
And the family is generally very forgiving
So she lets go of her high expectations
And hopes the lesson lasts for the duration.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody.


  1. Love it! It's so peaceful not to be hosting.

  2. Yes, love those dishes. Delicious. My favorite part.
