Twas the Night before Closing

rapainting back to white, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

Twas the night before closing, when all through the hotel,
Not a kid was stirring, but Husband was going to Nashville. (yeah, long story..)

The childred were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While visions of toys danced in their heads.

And Mommy finally relaxed with wine in her cup,
Packed the last bags and put them in the trunk. (well, husband did)

Kids enrolled in another preschool,
Shot records transferred<----what a silly rule.

Paint has been bought,
Rollers, tape, and brushes, the whole lot.

This weekend we'll be painting fools,
Changing to our colors, making it cool.

Cable and internet being hooked up tomorrow,
So now, other's wireless, I won't have to "borrow".

It should be fun, loud and crazy.
With so much to do, no time to be lazy.

Peace out.....

I believe in you Tommie. Sorry about hubby (that sucks)!

How exciting!!!

Waiting for the household goods could be such a pain. Seemed like it took a month from HI to CA. Happy painting to you two/ :)
