Move in day for college students - happening all week.
If a parking space in metro-Boston's what you seek,
Out-of-towners will discover what the natives know;
Do not pahk yah cah in Hahvud Yahd, for they will tow.

Kitchen Reno - Day 37

cabinet installation
Not our kitchen but you get the idea.

From the tunnel of our reno we can see a light;
We've begun to hope that everything will be alright.
Almost all the floors are laid, the cabinets installed,
Waiting on the counter-tops - the templater's been called.

After that, the new appliances should all arrive.
Kitchen renovation has kicked in to over-drive.
All those months of preparation, now the end's in sight...
Or else it's a train behind that fast approaching light.

Kitchen Reno - Day 28

The kitchen from the sunroom after the plumbing had been removed

Hi...  I know it's been awhile and - no...  I haven't died
Renovations mean that there is no place left inside
That is not a cluttered mess... We need a Sherpa guide
Just to find our way upstairs (Okay.  Perhaps I lied.)

It could be the fumes from all the paint that we've applied
Or that workmen everywhere leave me nowhere to hide.
 Now the rhyming circuits in my brain are all but fried.
It's too loud to concentrate.  I haven't even tried.

If you came here looking for new rhymes and were denied,
Please forgive this interruption. Here, where I reside
Major renovations are a pretty bumpy ride;
There's been so much going on I've let my blogging slide.
