10 years Past Already!

I got a letter in the mail a few weeks ago telling me that my 10 year high school reunion is this summer. I can't believe it's been 10 years since we've been in school. I'm sad that we're not able to attend the reunion cause with living so far away and expensive to fly 3 of us there. But amazing how time flies by so quickly and how so many things that have happen since then.

*Devon and I both serving a full time mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. (Brazil/San Diego)
*Getting Married in the Logan,Utah Temple
* Devon a Domino's Pizza Man and Me a full-time Cashier at Macey's grocery store
*Devon joining the military (Air-Force)
*My father Elmer G. Larsen passing away (Feb. 19,2007)
*Being blessed to have a handsome baby boy Alexander who is now 2 yrs old
* Moving from Utah to Texas and Texas to Georgia
* Devon been in the Air-Force 1 1/2 years and Me a full-time mom

And lots more stuff in between. I was going thru some books and came across one of my favorite poems that I really liked in High School and thought I'd share it with Ya'll.
It is called.........."Homework! Oh Homework!"

Homework! Oh, homework!
I hate you! You stink!
I wish I could wash you
away in the sink,
if only a bomb
would explode you to bits.
Homework! Oh, homework!
You're giving me fits.

I'd rather take baths
with a man-eating shark,
or wrestle a lion
alone in the dark,
eat spinach and liver,
pet ten porcupines,
than tackle the homework
my teacher assigns.

Homework! Oh homework!
You're last on my list,
I simply can't see
why you even exist,
if you just disappeared
it would tickle me pink.
Homework! Oh homework!
I hate you! You stink!
