Cleaning For Thanksgiving!

I KNEW there was a reason my house was so messy!! Since I am hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow for my in-laws, I'm off cleaning today!! I also still have to do some last minute shopping and try to bake some orange cranberry bread and a pumpkin pie cake tonight!!

I just found this poem and wanted to leave you with it :

Cleaning Poem

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I'd been 'puttering',
And I had to answer "yes."

He told me to get off my butt
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick...
I was just admiring my work...
I didn't mean to 'click.'

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site
That I got SO way into...
I was into it all night.

(Sigh)Nothing's changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney.

Love it! Of course, a shiny mouse would be an improvement here.

Hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving! (Despite the fact that you had to clean.)
