i am a mom/wife/textile designer gone haywire. I love to sing(music/arts AA degree), craft, exercise, and be goofy. Just living life outside the norm. And the norm thanks me for it. Oh yeah, and I like me some haikus. . . . . . . . . . What are we up to currently? Aaron recently started medical school at Ross University on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, and the kids and I are along for the crazy ride :)

Twas the month after Christmas...............

Friday, January 1, 2010

Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house

Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.


The cookies I'd nibbled, eggnog I did taste.

All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.


When I got on the scales there arose such a number!

When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).


I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;

The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,


The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese

And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."


As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt

And prepared once again to do battle with dirt --


I said to myself, as I only can

"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"


So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,

Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip


Every last bit of food that I like must be banished

Till all the additional ounces have vanished.


I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.

I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.


I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie

,I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.


I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore --

But isn't that what January is for?


Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.

Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
