Greetings all! Today’s Monday Mission, hosted by my favorite NOLA resident Painted Maypole, is to write your post in the form of a holiday song. So, get your bobtails in action and sing to the tune of Jingle Bells! And then, when you’re finished, check out the other participants at her place.
Kids home for two weeks
Heaven knows the carnage and the havoc that they’ll wreak.
Don’t know what to think
This much family togetherness is driving me to drink.
Cooking and cleaning
I just cannot catch up
When I get it clean,
The kids just mess it up
They just won’t go to bed
Even though it’s ten
I’ll try to threaten them with coal and see what happens then.
Holidays are long
Today my therapy will be to write a silly song.
Could be worse, I fear
At least I’m not getting a cow head* as a gift this year.
More on the Cow Head tomorrow….
