On the Twelfth Month of Payments My True Love Gave to Me...

One year ago today escrow closed on the house. 
This little song about sums up the last year.

Twelve hundred boxes,
Eleven feet of tarp,

Ten zillion friends a helping,
Nine buckets painted,
Eight paws a planting,
Seven miles of cardboard,
Six months of swimming,
Fine, golden things!

Four muddy feet,

Three shade trees,

Two dirty gloves,
And a partly dead, ugly bare tree!
