SO LONG SIMPLICITY




So long to the days of simplicity, to the days of carefree attitudes.



Goodbye to fall adventures. Picking pumpkins, their pungent smell enveloping us as we carved them.




So long to the season of thanks, as we remembered our family and loved ones, and stuffed ourselves until we felt like bloated little piggies, wishing we had John Deere’s hotline for a forklift rental.


So long to sleeping in…



Letting our hair down...





Dressing up for special occasions and wearing whatever you want...




(Hey—she takes after her mom.)





Goodbye to all that joy. Now, Americans everywhere are ringing in a new season, the season BEFORE Christmas: THE SEASON OF CHAOS.

In fact…that reminds me of a song….



Deck the malls with maxed out Visas
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-wha ha ha!
My bills look like the tower of pisa,
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Crowds that make me claustrophobic
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Frenzied shoppers, where’s the logic?
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.



See the parking spot before us,
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Can’t they see I was here fir-st!
HA HA HA HA HA,
HA HA HA HA!
Follow me in merry measure.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
While I long for parking treasure.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la








Getting hit by passing shoppers
Fa la la la la, la la la y-ow!
Where’s my comfort food and slippers?
Fa la la la la, la la la la
On my foot another blister
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Finally found it! “Back off, sister!"
FA LA LA LA LA, LA LA LA LA!








May your season be filled with bountiful glad tidings, and hopefully you’ll survive!



*Thanks Annie for your lyric help :)
