The Twelve Days of Staycation

I’m on vacation, which for me means staycation because I’m poor!  I did some internet searches on staycations, to figure out how to do it right, and it seems to me that most of the suggestions cost more than an actual vacation, so I’m just making it up.  Anyway, I thought you might like to know what a little blind girl can find to fill up her staycation time, so I wrote this little song for you, gentle readers:

 

On the first day of staycation, my true love gave to me

a ticket for the dry-cleaning!

 

On the second day of staycation, my true love gave to me

two lightbulbs to change

and a ticket for the dry-cleaning!

 

On the third day of staycation, my true love gave to me

three Hunger Games books

two lightbulbs to change

and a ticket for the dry-cleaning!

 

On the fourth day of staycation, my true love gave to me

four loads of laundry

three Hunger Games books

two lightbulbs to change

and a ticket for the dry-cleaning!

 

On the fifth day of staycation, my true love gave to me

    • Thanks so much! I’m glad I was on vacation when I got Freshly Pressed. I don’t know how I would have responded to all the awesome comments otherwise! If only I could have worked it into the song….
