You know… that Blog?

Sneak peek, and Weekend Funnies

Written By: Jenn - Mar• 14•10

For the next installment on my “An Interview With…” series, I’m featuring a very very special… Group. Look for that on Sunday, March 21st. This interview will reveal a few things about me in their words… ACK, and about these 3 very special people in my life.

I am very excited about this interview, and even more so because it takes a lot for these three wonderful people to pour their hearts out to complete strangers! You and I both know they’re doing it simply because they love me, and I’m sure my readers will share the love too!

My bloggy/haiku friend Shakira has started her own meme! It’s called “Weekend Funnies” and all you need to do is post something funny to share. Seems simple enough! I’m catching the tail-end of it this time, since I was AFK* a lot last week and didn’t have time to prepare anything for it. I’ll try to do better next time!

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity I keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I’m pretty sure I’ll lose my mind.

I pray I find a little quiet,
Far from the daily family riot.
May I lie back and not have to think
About what they’re stuffing down the sink,

Or who they’re with, or where they’re at
And what they’re doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)

To cuddle in my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another goldfish–dead!)
Some silent moments for goodness sake
(Did I just hear a window break?)

And that I need not cook or clean
(well heck, I’ve got the right to dream)
Yes now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep,
But as I look around I know,
I must have lost them long ago!


* AFK = “Away From Keyboard” for those who aren’t sure of that one ;)

    Cute!! I grabbed a sleeping oppossum out of our chicken coop once. He was napping after eating all of the eggs. I won’t do that again — they can be rather grumpy (vicious) if you wake them up suddenly.

    Are those baby possums? Just goes to show that ANYTHING can be cute, since I think the grown ones are a tad creepy. Love the poem, too!

    Jenny, please FORGIVE me for not seeing your entry last week and for my tardiness in saying my thanks. I have been so busy with Jasmine, she is deciding on a College/University and I am so new to hosting, it is not easy at all. Please do forgive me.

    I am not CONFUSED with the McLinky and hope to do better soonest.

    Love you!
