The Nightmare Before Christmas. . .

The Nightmare Before Christmas. . .
Last night I has a nightmare about Christmas and it was terrifying! It was around 3am which is normally when I do my best thinking:) I was going through a list in my head of things I needed to order and how I was going to gradually start increasing my supplies in light of Christmas. . .
That one little word--Christmas--sent me spinning. I immediately daydreamed myself into last year and the insanity that happened my first Christmas on etsy. I thought I would share a little peek into my head. . .
It twas the season of Christmas and all through the house
all the people were stirring the resin and glue.
90 pendants a day sealing, gluing, painting, sending
the good little elves kept on plugging away.
Working full time as a teacher by day,
chemical burns up her arms fighting the itch away.
Tins were a flowing red, white and green
while daydreams of New Years danced in our heads.
Stuck in bubble wrap our fingers all gluey
Racing to the postman just by 5:30
It was so busy, so crazy, so nuts
so unprepared was this little Christmas elf . . .
Not this year--she awoke with a scream!
No, not this year, our fingers will be clean
This year we'll be ready with tins all aglow
This year no beating down the postman's door.
This year--I'll be screaming, Happy Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!
Phew--catastrophe averted. I was in no way prepared last year for what happened during Christmas season but I am EXCITED for this year. This is my full time job now and I LOVE it. I can't wait for Christmas--this year I'll be ready:)
