Quilt With Us

A friend sent this to me and I thought it was pretty humerous and would share.....

The Week After Christmas
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

'Twas the week after Christmas, and all through the house Nothing would
fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibble, the eggnog I'd taste All the holiday parties had
gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk - more a lumber)

I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared; The gravies and sauces
and beef nicely rared,

The rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt And prepared once again to
do battle with dirt,

I said to myself, as I only can,
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

So, away with the last of the sour cream dip, Get rid of the fruit cake,
every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished, 'Til all the
additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie - not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie, I'll munch on a carrot
and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore But isn't that what January
is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot -
Happy New Year to all
and to all a good diet!

Have a wonderful 2010!

FUNNY! that was the one advantage to the kids not coming home for the holidays... I didn't do all the baking that I usually do - and I didn't gain any weight from 'testing' the goods or eating the 'leftovers'.
