Thanks to my mother in law who sent me this cute little poem this morning. She must be onto me!!!

Cleaning Poem

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

He told me to get off my fanny,
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 good 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 it -
I was into it all night.

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.

Oh, my stars. There are more of me! The computer desk, the legs of the monitor and the keyboard are the most well dusted items in my house!

This is great.

Isn't that the truth. Sometimes I look at that little clock in the corner and tell myself 10 more minutes and your getting off...20 more minutes go by and I say to myself 10 more minutes and your getting off...20 more minutes OH YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!! HA!
