Twas the day before departure,
And all through the house,
Bags, clothing, cameras
Excitement to see THE MOUSE.
The washer was going, the vacuum too,
A pile of homework to bring with, EWWW!
The children were jumping and bouncing off the wall,
"Where are my mouse ears, where is my shawl?"
While I stress about shoes and weather to come,
My husband relaxes and sits on his bum.
The dog is all clean and ready for doggie daycare,
Will she behave, will she eat, how will she fare?
Just one more day of school and activities after,
Then it's off on a plane to the land of much laughter.
As the temps drop here, I will get the 'to do list' done,
I will run here and there, to get to the land of the sun.
If I were Trump I would have hired a jet for you all,
With all of us there, we would have had a ball!
This trip, however, is just for us four,
Stay tuned, sit tight, I'll have stories galore!
