A Gol Dang Nervous Twitch



Today's a busy busy bustling day Three days before the big one A bunch of last minute stuff to take care of Wonder if I'll ever be done Panic has a real tight hold on me Did I buy enough cranberry sauce Is the turkey big enough for all these folks Got my toes and fingers crossed Hope the weather certainly holds out Could be more of that freezing rain If it does get real bad, it's better to cancel Driving can be a dangerous game Well here's hoping it all runs smoothly And all goes off without a hitch Seems I developed a strange new affliction It's a gol dang nervous twitch <3 <3 <3 © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack! Jack! Jack! It's Cathie that's getting the twitch! She probably needs her shoulders, and neck rubbed... to releive the tention from the stress... Do you get sympathic pains?... LOL... My washer parts won't be here for a week... And Hubby is spending a week in training with tests to retrain him for the next project.... I guess we're all sharing that wealth... so to speak.... But we're having fun with Dragon warming our feet. The secret is fire retardant booties... And he warms our cocoa.
