And Now, A Poem…

Winter Break is coming to an end
The reality of work is just around the bend
My job is great
There is nothing to hate
But end-of-vacation blues are hard to mend.

This break has been calm and serene
Sometimes it’s nice to not be seen
There was sleep and travel
And watching the Cowboys unravel
And all the fuzzy things the holidays mean.

Still trying to finish a book
Kindle broke, should probably get a Nook
I wanted to read three
I guess it wasn’t meant to be
Because vacation goes by like a quick-glance look.

January is cold, but it isn’t all gloom
Since our favorite TV shows will finally resume
Midseason programming is usually trash
But I’m counting the seconds to NBC’s Smash
And football will thankfully be over soon!

There’s one thing I don’t get into much
New Year’s goals, I don’t have a bunch
My resolution is the same
As I always proclaim
Start brushing my teeth at work after lunch.

So on we go to 2012
Best wishes for all to be happy and well
May it be wonderfully fitting
For, I don’t know, a June wedding
And maybe just a little less Adele.

The End.

Happy New Year readers! Thanks for all your blog love and support. May going back to work tomorrow, if you haven’t already, not totally suck.

  7. Awesome poem, Caryn! Love it and it’s SO right-on! I feel the same way, heading back to campus tomorrow. At least campus will be quiet without the students back yet (ha ha).

  8. Loved this! I seriously need my tv shows back! I’m addicted to REVENGE and THE LYING GAME. All these bad movies and reality crap are making me crazy. Meanwhile, I’m also delighted the kids are back in school. December is dead to me.

    • Hi Nina! Thanks for visiting the blog and for the comment. Everyone keeps telling me how great Revenge is. I might have to Netflix it this summer. I can imagine it’s nice to have the kids home, but also just as nice when they return to school. πŸ™‚
