Mom’s Obstacle Course

sarcasm
Wake up in the morning, ready to go
got lots to do, can’t start off  slow.
With only twenty-four hours
I’m gonna need some super powers!

 

Race downstairs, laundry in my arms
before I even hear the sound of the alarm.
Throw the pile of duds in the washing machine,
but forgot the shirt that was stained green.

 

Before returning upstairs, I spy a package nearby
so I scope it up with a very loud sigh.
Toss it in kid’s room, then stand in the hall.
Wonder why I was up here–oh! bugger all!
Jog downstairs, now what was I doing?
guess I better start the coffee to brewing.
Pour a cup of coffee, eat a bite of toast
oops, maybe I better defrost that roast.

 

Look for the crock pot, see the dog food instead
fill the pooch’s bowl so she can be fed.
Would like to read the recipe for tonight’s meal
but can’t locate my glasses, what an ordeal!
Find ’em atop a stack of mail,
get a paper cut and break a nail.
Nothin’ like sorting through bills
for good times and a  financial  thrill!

 

Laundry, errands, cleaning, and chores
with so much to do, I’m never bored.
Leaping and skipping from task to task
never remember what I did last.
I’m a multi-tasking flunky, who needs to cut back.
Errands and chores are nothin’ but overachiever’s crack!
Must take some time to enjoy a healthy fruit snack.

 

The day is over, I still have lots to do
tomorrow’s another day of chore deja vu.
