Day 23 Assembly Required

Assembly Required

I have my gifts
I'm old enough to finally
and applaud them.

But one thing I'm not, "handyman".
Hammering a nail  
I hit everything but the nail.

So here it comes
the cabinet I ordered
and have been waiting forever for.
In a flat cardboard box
weighing a ton, 
opened, its just a bunch of boards.
Are you kidding me?

This is why I have a husband,
but he is out of commission these days.
This is why I have a son
but he lives 500 miles away.
I have a granddaughter who has inherited
her Dad's talent but she just left for Utah
and Super Cross.

So I sit and stare.
