Default I'm looking for the stamping poem........

I can't remember the name of it, but it basically starts out where Sunday the wife started stamping, and it goes thru the week and by the end of the week the husband hasn't been fed, no housework done etc etc. I used to have a copy of it, but now I can't find it. Can anybody help me out? TIA!

I can't find my copy of the poem that you want, but I do have this one I got a couple of years ago. It's by Peggy Crowe.

ODE TO RUBBER

I think that I shall never see
My life return to normalcy.
A life where rubber had no part
But now whose mentions thrills my heart,
And keeps me thinking all the day
Of how I can find time to play.

A life where I am free to think
Of other things than stamps and ink.
And life was calm, and life was quiet,
But I saw a stamp, and I HAD to buy it!
And the rest, as they say, is history---
I don't have stamps....my stamps have me!

It's not the same, but I thought this was cute.

Not too sure but is this the one you are looking for

She learned to stamp on Monday
Her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner,
So we went out to dine.

She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely
But she forgot to dust.

On Wednesday it was birthday cards
She says that chalking's fun.
Shading, blending, and watercoloring --
But the laundry wasn't done.

Her card swap was on Thursday
Using green and blue and red;
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed!

It was shaker cards on Friday
Using techniques she just adores,
But she never seemed to notice
The crumbs on all the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
My wife can stamp the hours away;
The house will still be neat.

Well, it's already Sunday,
And my forehead's feeling damp.
I cursed, I raved, and I ranted --
The MAID has learned to stamp!
