The inhabitants of the house were all fast asleep.
By eight o'clock the mommy was up in a flash;
She showered, dressed and emptied the trash.
Unloaded the dishwasher, then fillled it once more;
Threw in a load of laundry and washed the floors.
Vacuumned and polished and changed the sheets;
Then unloaded the dishwasher (again) in a heat.
Organized the frig, pumpkin pie a la whip
Turkey and stuffing, and a cracker dip.
Eight hours later when the cleaning was complete
She laid on the couch and propped up her feet.
And some heard her exclaim as her head hit the hay....
Thank goodness Christmas won't return for 364 days!
