Holiday Poems




'Twas the day before Christmas and all through the house

Gina was running around thinking, my god, haven't I finished it all yet?

The baking couldn't be done for a new garbage disposal we had to get

and install, which took pretty much all day.

When they finished, I looked at the clock I said to myself, "No way!"

I haven't got time to even start what I need to do.

So then Gina said to everyone, "Well, it looks like no cookies for you!"



And that, my friends, is why I don't write poetry more often.

I love you all.

I wish you a happy, joyful, and merry Christmas indeed!

Merry Chistmas, Gina! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.

I've really enjoyed reading your blog over the past few months - and hope there'll be lots more to read in the new year (with or without poetry).

Merry Christmas, Gina. I hope you and yours have a relaxing joyous day.

I liked your poem and wouldn't mind seeing a little more of them in the future :)

Also, thanks for the Calvin and Hobbes- you know they are my favs :)

It's Christmas Day here! 12.10am. I am still up madly wrapping and stomping footprints everywhere...

Have a wonderful Christmas babe. I know that Santa will bring you something extra special cause you deserve it.

Ho Ho Ho!!!

Gina -

From my family to you and yours - we wish you a very, very Merry Christmas. I hope the day brings you lots of love, laughter, joy and memories for a lifetime.

I am so tickled that I "found" a new bloggy friend.

Hugs -

Merry Christmas to you Gina.. Hubba hubba.. and especially Mr P.. whose innocence {about the holiday..lol} is why we do what we do

gmcountrymama said...

Happy holidays to you to! I didn't get everything done either, but hopefully we will still have a great Xmas cookies or not.( I had to buy oreo cookies from the machine at work tonight for Santa because I made cream puffs for tomorrow but my daughter insists that Santa only eats cookies!)

Cherry said...

It's ALMOST OVER!!!

Seriously though, I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Christmas celebration, even though it is sans cookies. (What will you leave for Santa?)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! That poem looks familiar...

Ginger said...

Hope you had a great holiday despite the small disasters!

Patois said...

But at least it was in italics. That makes it poetry, right?

Steph said...

Hope that you had a great holiday and got everything done in time! :) (and that the new garbage disposal is working!)

I hope your Christmas was great. How many days until next Christmas? I can't wait! ;)

A belated Merry Christmas and a very current Happy New Year to you Gina and your family. I've so enjoyed your blogging more than any gift I have or could receive.
I've been busy attending to sick people, buying more than I should have, and drama...always drama! It makes the merry more merrier...right? Yes, I thought so.
Good luck to you in 2008! Oy, I cringe when I see it written. ;)

You silly girl! I was expecting a mushy Christmassy post and got this. I laughed so hard I spewed water out of my nose!
