Sherrinda, I'll be praying for your book ending to come swooping down on you.
And, yes, I'd definitely have a problem if my hubby gave me such short notice. Do men just not get it it? Do they not see!!!!?
Sadly, I'm a horrible housekeeper and hubby has learned through the years to give me plenty of notice for such occasions. I get so embarrassed some days just answering the door to the delivery man. My girls refuse to put their shoes away and since we don't have a mud roon, in the front foyer they lay strewn all over the place, and I refuse to pick them up after asking so many times.
I'm thinking I'm going to like the university years when the girls come home for short visits, but leave their messes for their roomies to tolerate.
I so wish I could write at night. I'm horrible after 9:00 pm at doing anything on the computer. It would solve some of my problems though.
I hope the showing went well. Good luck getting into the writing.
I think it's great to have goals, and they help us, but we can become slaves to them and feel undo pressure to acheive, acheive, acheive.
Can you push your date back a week, so you don't feel so stressed? It's not like you are being lazy or procrastinating. This is an unforseen event.
Just a thought. I will pray for wisdom.

Oh girl, I feel you. We had our house up for a bit, and my hubby is a realtory, and he'd call me and say someone was coming. SO stressful. I was like you, running around crazy. Though no teens, so your boat stunk more. LOL
I hope you get a chance to finish. Put those teens to work! 🙂
Eileen, thank you! It makes me feel a wee bit better that someone else struggles with having a perfectly kept house! Not my forte, for sure! Thank you for the prayers! I am going to need them!
Marybeth, yep! I have already told the kids we are getting up at 9am (I know, it's not early, but it is early for them!)and we are tackling the house. We will work till it's done. I have boxes ready and we will get it done so I have some time the rest of the week. (hopefully…if all goes according to plan!)
Tara!!! Yes, I need to look on the bright side! It is encouraging to see how my mind was working through, trying to find a possible way to work on BOTH! Does that mean I'm focused?? lol
Heather, well…I don't know if I CAN write at night. I don't usually, because I usually have to be at work at 7:15am during the school year! But I am going to try and we shall see. 🙂
Katie, thanks friend. I too am a huge procrastinator, hence the mess I have to clean up. Keep up the prayers! I can soooo feel the end is near!
Jeanette, you are right, I should push back the date, but the problem is, I want to work on revisions the rest of July and hand it over to my dad (he's a professional editor/author), because come August I will be working huge overtime hours and won't have the energy to write anything!!! So, we shall see what God enables me to do. 😉 Thanks for your sweet encouragment. I really love the encouragers I've met through the bloggersphere. ;0
Lynnette, thanks for the cheer! I have more hope for my book than the house at this point! lol
Sorry I'm late hitting the blogs today! Had one of those days! But now things have settled down and I can breathe and relax a little!
I didn't think you had to sell your house? Are you moving closer to your church after all?
I think selling a home is one of the most stressful things a person has to go through, especially in today's economy. I'll be praying for you!!
And BTW, I love seeing you on twitter! Some of your tweets have been so fun and just make me laugh!
Oh my goodness! Your house sounds so much like mine (except cleaner…)
I can so tell that I've been wrapped up in my writing lately, because laundry is behind, my kitchen floor is begging me to sweep it and my carpet… let's just say it has revolted and is no longer cooperating with me.
Thankfully we aren't selling our house right now. LOL. We'll need new carpet before we EVER do that! LOL
Hi Faith! Thanks for the well wishes! I appreciate it!
Jody, it's a long story….
I know it will be stressful, but I know God will make things happen in his timing, so I am trying not to stress too much. As for Twitter, I have had some fun. Little blurps can make the funniest conversations, don't you think?
Krista, I am sure your house looks much better than mine. Seriously, there is so much wrong with this house, I have given up on it! 😉
