...my new job and what else is new?
The girls still aren't sleeping and I'm about through.
Some laundry is drying, the rest folded with care;
So tomorrow I won't be wonderin' what to wear.
No money has come in yet but some has gone out;
It costs some to make some, my husband's found out!
I bought some new pants and new shoes for my feet.
A thermos for soup, and some good snacks to eat;
Right now I'm exhausted, but I can't close my eyes;
There's no more sleeping in, so early I must rise.
I've dreaded this day; staying at home's a good fit;
I enjoy being home; I scrapbook and I knit!
But good things, they say, must come to an end;
I'll contribute in a new way; to the bills I will tend!
So I should be excited, I'm starting a new phase;
I'll have a new 'purpose,' and a "real job" that PAYS!
