So Christmas came and went
and I attended all parties but one
for after driving 250 miles for parties and overnighters
On Christmas day, I was just about done
Hacking and coughing,
not sleeping at all
Saying no to the 5-year old who won’t quit asking,
You could say I’m having a ball
So let me clear up my lungs
People think healing’s just a snap
But at least I can say I met Santa
even though I never got to sit on his lap
There were gifts aplenty
though I’ve long lost count
Santa’s been generous, it seems, this year
Even though his gifts all go on my account
But the 5-year old doesn’t know that yet
and maybe he never will
I just hope he knows he’s staying on the Naughty list
because next year, I won’t be able to foot the bill
So I hope your Christmas was grand
I know mine was okay
I missed one party, so it’s not all bad
Even if the party I missed was on Christmas day.

Poor Girl! I was lazy lazy lazy today…long winter’s nap and everything! Perfect.
Yep, I need to get this cough looked into. It’s always what gets me in the end. Darn asthma…
So glad you had a lazy lazy day today!
I had a wonderful LEGO day! I got tons of Legos, got to see Bo5A (LOVED IT), got everything I wanted and didn’t need, plus gift cards to buy more stuff I don’t need. Lots of Tolkien books too. Hope you are feeling better soon. ❤
Happy Holidays dear ! Wish you an incredible new year full of contentment and joy !
