Well, I’m almost finished packing for me and the boys. We leave on Friday, and wow, are my kids excited! 2 more weeks of vacation (the Colliseum!) playing their video games (the Trevi Fountain!) and no homework (Museums!). Hmm– guess what they think they’ll be doing (and guess what they’ll actually get to do!).
It’s always a crunch of last minute doings when I go away. This time, in addition to some serious art deadlines which I’ll share when I get home, we had some clothing issues to deal with. To wit: I own dedicated California dudes who live in yucky tee shirts and shorts almost all year long. So, off to clothes shop for the heathens (with some new purchases jumping into the car for me, too!)
I got the usual whines (Moooommmm, do we hafta wear button up shirts) but managed to appease the dudes by making their new shirts a bit groovier:
I was also called upon to re-fashion 2 short sleeve button up shirts: one got a stencilled skull, and the other has another monster stamped strategically so as to be eating the innocent polo player insignia.
I hope these shirts are now acceptable wear. I really do need to quit painting and go pack the suitcase!
Ciao ciao, amici! Arrivederci!
