I rush around for days and days
A million things on my list
What to buy, what to bake
Decorating bit by bit
The moment comes that I've been waiting for
A surprised face when the paper rips
Everything seems worth it then
All the planning, the work, the trips
Then comes the real hard part
The day after all of it
I wonder where to start cleaning
Where do I put all this shit?
The fridge is full of leftovers
Every surface is covered with presents
The garbage is overflowing
With paper and boxes and remnants
The noise in here is deafening
What was I thinking getting that toy?
The cats eating the tree again
Where's the laughter? Where's the joy?
The moral of this story?
Now thats a damn good question
Next year we should just skip it
But that's just my suggestion
Hope you had a great holiday. We absolutely did. Seeing my sons face on Christmas morning is just wonderful. Being with my family is truly amazing. I had Christmas at home, Christmas with my in-laws and Christmas with parents all in one day. I have one more Christmas to go on New Year's Day. We are very lucky.
Getting ready to watch some great bowl games! FSU plays on Thursday and RU plays on Friday! I know what bowl game Tara will be watching on the 2nd! Anyone else?
