Our life is pretty good. I'll be the first to shout this from the roof tops.
But today I put our life here in a holding pattern, desperate to escape for a spell.
The count-down is accomplished.
Bathrooms scrubbed, dishes clean, floors swept,
Etsy "vacationed", bills paid, mail held,
neighbors notified, tenants reassured,
cat re-assigned, trees watered,
truck cleaned, bags packed,
and sheets changed
for the night we return, to a clean house,
rested minds, refilled hopes,
and a new year.
Have a wonderful Yule, and may you enjoy
a lovely, prosperous, and creative 2012!
