'Twas the Night Before Wednesday - A Poetic Tribute to WFMW
‘Twas the night before Wednesday, and all o’er the house,
All the family was busy, organizing themselves.
"Pick up twice your age! Stop all this stewing!
It works for Kim C. (with all her EIGHT kids)! She knows what she’s doing!"
Towel hooks were hung, as Owlhaven said to do,
And toothbrush racks cut for the Raising Five crew.
Baking soda was added to the large pot of beans
Because Michelle said if we did it, we’d let off less steam.
Sheets were all folded with the pillow case just so,
Toiletries were organized in a pot by the window.
And gardening was done with oh, so much care,
But who could do it like Carol, with such good-looking flair??
The grapes were all frozen, and bananas, too,
(Tips passed along by I can't remember who)
A specialized cleaner to clean dirt and poo,
And butter dish was bought because Nettie said to.The medicines were organized in cute little bins,
Short ones and tall ones to put everything in.
More hooks were hung - but what in tarnation?
Org Junkie said it was easy - a great backpack station!
The carpets were cleaned, stains were erased,
Grocery items bought - buy two, just in case!
The word lists of Scrabble were studied by the ton,
In hopes that some day Katherine could beat Blest with Sons!
The tips just came rolling in faster and stronger
And soon the Raising Five family was disorganized no longer.
By midnight (a few months later) the house looked so much nicer,
Just in time for another visit to Rocks in My Dryer!
So hurry up, ladies, get in your post!
Happy Wednesday to all - got a good tip for roast?
