School is out. Work is slow.
All my days are spent alone.
I tell myself I'll get stuff done,
Like taking my dog for a run.
I'll straighten my entire room.
Then I'll dust and vacuum, too.
At noon, I'll make some homemade lunch
Or cookies with a perfect crunch.
I'll practice hard for worship team,
I'll fix the shirt with a broken seam.
I'll finish making Christmas gifts--
Cross everything off my to-do list!
Next thing I know, it's half past ten.
I'm in my jammies, still in bed.
To myself one more lie I say:
"I'll do it all some other day."
