In Honor of the Military Wife

In Honor of the Military Wife

Tween fixing dinner and homework today
the pipes burst in a waterfall spray
my kids school called, she was in trouble
'get here tomorrow on the double'
my son fell and hit his head
to top it off the goldfish is dead
the stair lights popped and went to black
I stepped on a toy and threw out my back
The dryer broke, the car is squeeking
(I just KNOW that oil is leaking)
My daughter sobs" I miss my dad!"
Comforting her makes my 2 year old mad
he whips a car at my ear
(for THAT a small pop on the rear!!)
they eat, I bathe em, I put em to bed
"I need water" they both said
A drink, the potty, tucked back in
this, of course, once AGAIN
My back is sore, in need of a rub
I grab a towel and head for the tub
There, with Calgon, a book, and some wine
I think to myself."Things will be fine"
But when hubby returns to relaxation
I'M leavin I'll NEED the vacation!!
