‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, painting all through the house
No furniture to speak of, except the one yellow couch.
Our stockings had been packed in the truck with such care,
We just hoped things didn’t get broken in there.

Winnie and Haley, all stressed,wouldn’t sleep in their beds
Hoped they had visions of the Rockies in their heads.
And Mike in his heady hat and I in my vols cap,
Had been prepping for the move, we just wanted to nap!

Our skis were awaiting, season passes were ready,
Just needed to make the 25 hour drive nice and steady.
Away to Denver we were driving, bought a house in a flash,
The mile-high city was calling & we were making a dash.

The townhouse had rented and I told my work,
I’ll continue remotely as an added perk!
Our friends and family we’ll miss so much so,
We’ll try not to cry as we ski in the snow.

Our Denver adventure is finally here,
We can’t wait for what awaits in the new year!
So while this holidays weird, we’re like nomads alright
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
