The Girl In the Whirl

I got this poem from http://chocolateonmycranium.blogspot.com/ and wanted to share it with you cause it gave me a good chuckle.

The Girl in a Whirl
by ‘Dr. Sue’
(a.k.a. Vickie Gunther)

Look at me, look at me, look at me now!

You could do what I do

If you only knew how.


I study the scriptures one hour each day;

I bake,

I upholster,

I scrub,

and I pray.



I always keep all the commandments completely;

I speak to my little ones gently and sweetly.



I help in their classrooms!

I sew all they wear!

I drive them to practice!

I cut all their hair!



I memorize names of the General Authorities;

I focus on things to be done by priorities.



I play the piano!

I bless with my talents!

My toilets all sparkle!

My checkbooks all balance!



Each week every child gets a one-on-one date;

I attend all my meetings (on time! Never late!)



I’m taking a class on the teachings of Paul,

But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all …



I track my bad habits ‘til each is abolished;

Our t-shirts are ironed!

My toenails are polished!



Our family home evenings are always delightful;

The lessons I give are both fun and insightful.

I do genealogy faithfully, too.

It’s easy to do all the things that I do!


I rise each day early, refreshed and awake;

I know all the names of each youth in my stake!



I read to my children!

I help all my neighbors!

I bless the community, too, with my labors.



I exercise and I cook menus gourmet;

My visiting teaching is done the first day!



(I also go do it for someone who missed hers.

It’s the least I can do for my cherished ward sisters.)



I chart resolutions and check off each goal;

I seek each “lost lamb” on my Primary roll.



I can home-grown produce each summer and fall.

But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all …



I write in my journal!

I sing in the choir!

Each day, I write “thank you’s” to those I admire.



My sons were all Eagles when they were fourteen!

My kids get straight A's!

And their bedrooms are clean!



I have a home business to help make some money;

I always look beautifully groomed for my honey.



I go to the temple at least once a week;

I change the car’s tires!

I fix the sink’s leak!



I grind my own wheat and I bake all our bread;

I have all our meals planned out six months ahead.



I make sure I rotate our two-years’ supply;

My shopping for Christmas is done by July!



These things are not hard;

It’s good if you do them;

You can if you try!

Just set goals and pursue them!



It’s easy to do all the things that I do!

If you plan and work smart, you can do them all, too!



It’s easy!” she said …



… and then she dropped dead.
