THE SAGA OF PAINTIN PLACE PART 1

He's home! He's home! My son is home for spring break!

He promised to help me with some projects! I have so many things I want to do (as you well know ha!). I can't wait to get started!

Sooooo, let's play where's Monkey Head Fred (my nickname for him, he's on the fence about it....wonder if it's cause his name isn't Fred ha!

Let's see if he's awake yet. Shhhhh you have to be berry berry quiet...


...looks like he's awake and I see that persnickety Miss Priss is hoarding him all for herself!


Me: G'morning my darling son!

Monkey Head Fred (grumbling somewhat incoherently): Not fully awake yet.

(Ms. Priss is giving me the evil eye ha!)

Me: You ready to get started on some projects?

Monkey Head Fred: in a bit....

Me: Whenever you're ready to get started. Lots to do!

Monkey Head Fred (a bit snippy): stop taking my picture please.....and we are NOT painting the armoire!

Me, grumbling under my breath as I walk away: ...how about that aero mattress accidentially on purpose springs a leak..then Monkey Head Fred won't have a bed....


Monkey Head Fred: I heard that!

Ms. Priss: Yeah! nap time!

And the saga continues....

Will the armoire ever get painted despite Monkey Head Fred's protest?


will Tina find a way to motivate Monkey Head Fred?....


Will Miss Priss get her nap?



Tune in next time for another episode of...Paintin' Place!

Cheers!

Hi Tina,
Monkey Head Fred, now that is some nickname. I call my son Feffer and he just grins.
I think Kitty is being very protective. How sweet. She misses him.
As for painting the armoire, yep, the cash might do the job!
Great post. I'm glad your son is home and you can spend some time together.

hugs
Sissie

Oh does that look familiar! When our youngest, still in college, returns home - - - he sorta moves into the couch with his laptop, JUST LIKE THAT. Only my nickname for him is "Weegie" which is of course short for Kyle LOUISE - - -

Hi Tina!

You could always threat......er.....convince him to help by "suggesting" you put this post on his Facebook page.

Martha said...

Ha, ha, what an adorable post, Tina! I think your son's project is sleeping, sleeping, and more sleeping!

Tina,
Monkey & Priss has the magic legends are made of! Remember The Owl & The PussyCat? Me thinks there is a spring break saga brewing about! I must say Priss looks eerily similar to Princess, my sister’s long lost fluff who had a most disagreeable disposition.
I’ve been pondering your cabinet since my last visit and wondering if you’ve settled on a color yet? I will play post catch up and see if the answer lies within. I have several projects on my To Do List, but this afternoon watching The Tudors entire season 3 was more alluring.
I must congratulate you on your recent appearance on My Romantic Home. I’m not the only one who knows how to spot talent. Your tiered project was brilliant!

Super cute! Can't wait to see how it turns out...

Icy BC said...

Really fun post, and the pile of money should help Monkey Head Fred and his Priss to the project in no time!

grannyann said...

Shaunna said...

Hi Tina, My son just went back to school but the scene was pretty much the same here--lots of napping.
I guess these boys are still growing! Enjoy your time with "Fred"!!!!

Sue said...

It's always great having the kids back home....but does he know he was featured on the blog?....Enjoy his time home....they leave way too soon....Sue.

Enchanted Rose Studio said...

Sue - he knows now! ha! He's not a happy camper. He said, "I don't want you taking my picture when I'm laying down! I can't believe you posted those pics!" Wonder if he'll start speaking to me tomorrow. *snicker*

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

You are so funny Tina, taking pictures of him while he's sleeping and the nick name is hilarious. Well I do hope your able to get some projects done. By the way the armoire is very nice..... are you painting that white?

Take Care, Until next time-

Cindy said...

Isn't it great to have your son back, even for awhile! Your geourgeous kitty definitely is hogging him, haha. She probably can't believe he came back to her.
Good luck with your Spring projects!
