Cleaning House

I did a bunch of cleaning up around the house today in anticipation of the small gaggle of friends we’re having over tomorrow afternoon. Besides the fact that we want our house to be nice-looking for our visitors, I have a conference to go to on Sunday and Stef will be going up to Maine. Anything we need to get done this weekend really needed to get done today. Unfortunately, I didn’t get around to the groceries or the laundry, but I’m sure we’ll figure that out as time permits. There’s still time tomorrow morning, after all.

I didn’t get any writing or reading done, which was disappointing. I know that I’m going to be a hurting puppy when the next deadline arrives, especially considering I’ll be heading to New Orleans with the part-time gig the day after I have to send everything in. Somehow I know I’m going to make it work. Just don’t ask me how.

The house looks nice, though. I’m glad I took some time out to hang the last couple of things that needed to be hung and clean up the office and vacuum and all that. It’s going to be a good time regardless of who shows up. We’ve had a couple of last minute cancellations, but I think there are still some people coming.

Anyway, it’s getting late and I’d prefer not to be entertaining with circles under my eyes, so I’m off to wind down and get to bed.
