On the twelth day of Christmas my true love gave to me....
Twelve days alone on a tropical island with a brand new laptop
Eleven hours of no one yelling Mom
Ten people to do my shopping for me
Nine assistants to wrap my gifts
Eight elves to decorate my house & get my cards out
Seven helpers to clean my house
Six caterers to cook dinner all month & make the Christmas cookies
Five minutes of peace
Four people to do my enless laundry
Three drivers to play taxi for my kids
Two accountants to pay my bills
And a long extension on my deadline
So what's on your wish list this holiday season? And have you been naughty or nice? Remember, Santa's watching :-)
Seriously, though, how on earth is any one person supposed to get all this done? Yet every year women across the world have done exactly that for whatever holiday they are celebrating. My husband works hard and does help out in many ways, but when it comes to the holidays, it's pretty much all on me. Even my kids get bored with helping out. They all love the way it looks in the end, but guess who has to put in the hours to make the magic happen.....Mom!!! Every year I say I'm going to go on strike or hire someone to do it all for me, but then I give in.
How about you? Are you the santa the elves and everyone in between? Inquiring minds want to know....
