Working 9 to 5


I have been babysitting my youngest grandson while my DIL works. She was talking to me the other day about how hard it is to get things done at home, work, get three boys to sports, and make time for herself. LOL! It brought back those busy days I had working and raising a family. So I made this card to encourage her. So, for all mom's out there who are struggling to keep up with everything, enjoy this time it will pass far too quickly and you will soon realize that trying to be perfect is not necessary but enjoying the time with your family is!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: "Working 9-5" (Dolly Parton)
Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin'
With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5
Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it
9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fat promotion
Want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me!
They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter
You're just a step on the boss-man's ladder
But you got dreams he'll never take away
You're in the same boat with a lotta your friends
Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in
An' the tide's gonna turn and it's all gonna roll your way
Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind and you never get the credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it
9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

Now you have gone and done it. I will be singing this song all day long! I'll be pulling weeds so I'm sure I won't offend anyone! Love the design and those paper clips are a stroke of genius! Well done!

I love this bright, funky card - and those clips are genius! I started singing the song as soon as I saw your blog title - but I only know the chorus so it could get quite annoying quite quickly. Now all we need is somebody to add a couple of hours to the day too lol.

Thanks for playing along at Creative Moments, and celebrating our birthday at Aud Sentiments too,
