Yeah, this is how I feel, Overwhelmed!

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.
