What will I do when this is all done?
First and foremost, have some fun!
See friends and family, go out to eat,
Have a party — what a treat!
Hit the mall, check out the sales,
Let my credit card go off the rails.
Have my stylist do my hair,
Maybe go blond — do I dare?
Put on makeup, brush on blush,
Take my time, no need to rush.
Put my contacts in my eyes,
And hope I haven’t gone up a size.
And I certainly need a mani/pedi —
My poor nails are more than ready.
Go to the library, yes, I’m a nerd.
Share the best jokes I’ve ever heard.
Take a vacation, go see a movie,
As they said in the ’60s, that would be groovy.
Get the house cleaned, from bottom to top
As long as I don’t have to touch a mop,
Walk through town, pet a dog,
See my friends at synagogue.
Walk on the beach, sit in the sun,
Oh I can’t wait till this is done!
