Well, it's finally happened, the snow's almost gone
And I just couldn't wait, to get out to my lawn,
So I ran out the door, and went down with a thud,
As I slid on some ice, right into the mud.
Now, I'm sure some squirrels were laughing at me,
As I did not go down - too gracefully.
My hubby came out, and just started to roar,
When he saw me so dirty, he laughed even more.
So I slowly got up, with no help from him,
And did a quick inventory of about every limb.
When I knew that only my ego was bruised,
I guess my face showed him, I was not amused.
And  as he turned quickly, to get out of my way
That same patch of ice, just made my day.
Down he went, with less grace than me
But did I laugh....hysterically???
You bet I did, then I ran in the door
My lawn can wait, for a few days more.

LOL!!! Wonderful wit on display here!  
Love it!

Don't laugh at your poor spouse who slides in the mud
For you may go down at the same place they slud!!!!!

What a great poem. Laughing is the best stress reliever, but situations like that are iresistable!
