If by chance you’ve taken a peek at my blog for this week
Sorry to say you have found very little, ’cause so much stuff caught me in the middle.
Hate to write all the stuff, of so many distractions, I’ve had enough!
Some are sad and some are good, but I got by the best I could.
Three days of baby sitting four precious girls who have me smitten.
Mamma Guppy had six small fry, I lost one – nearly made me cry.
Now when the girls come I must tell, instead of six only five still dwell.
Company arrived from Mississippi, thankfully Sammy made coffee.
Sister came from Chickasha, didn’t stay long then went on her way.
Three days I suffered an infected eye, made that way by a dreadful sty.
With antibiotic and hot wet rags, finally got rid of the ugly eye bags.
Had a war with an army of ants who cared not a whit about my raging rants.
I felt a bit of guilt ’bout my bullying ways, but I put an end to their living days.
Too much rain the sewer did fill, only one toilet working well.
Two toilet stools refused to flush. Company was coming – I did blush.
Ahh, the sun did shine and the ground dried out –
Swipe, swoop, swush,
Two cans of Frebreze and Lysol with a brush –
Now to the supreme test. Yes indeed, they do flush!
Is that the doorbell?
“Oh, do come in,” I say with a grin.
That kind of deceit is not really a sin!
