So blog day has arrived, and I am skidding in at the last second. Then again, that seems to be the way I’m running nowadays. I just turned in a book last week (yay!) and have been catching my breath ever since. In fact, I was in the car with my husband and son, and I sighed and said, “It’s just another manic Monday.” Of course then I had the song running through my head and started singing. My son gave me the strangest look. It seems he’s never heard that song. Like ever! Could it be true? Are there actually people who’ve never heard Manic Monday? If you’re one of those souls, get thee to the nearest You Tube and look it up. Seriously. Go and listen to the actual song by The Bangles. It’s awesome. I even pasted a link here for your convenience.
And in the spirit of running far behind this year (and while looking at my own very, bare Christmas tree), I made up my own little ditty to the tune of Manic Monday. Only it’s Manic Thursday. Because that’s the kind of day it is.
The tree’s not done,
It’s just sitting there all unadorned.
The baubles and lights
are in boxes looking so forlorn.
I haven’t shopped
Cause I just haven’t had the time
But the days are getting shorter,
So I guess I’d better stand in line.
It’s just another Manic Thursday…
I know it’s corny, but the original song has been stuck in my head for days. Anyway, I hope your Mondays are not manic and that your shopping is done and your cookies are all baked. If so, share how you stay ahead of the game, so I won’t find myself so far behind next year. If you’re like me and running as fast as you can to catch up, come and commiserate with me!
