or so I keep telling myself! Last night I completed sanding down the once painted-shut closet door to Mom's closet; priming and painting will take place this weekend, marking the end of the painting in Mom's house! I found out the Social Concerns committee in our parish will be open on Friday so a huge pile of bedding/towels/etc will be heading up there on Friday when I'm off clearing out at least half of the chaos currently in my childhood bedroom (essential because surprise-visiting aunts will be sleeping in there). The rest of Friday will be devoted to my house; putting away laundry and books will bascially eliminate all living room chaos in my house so once I vacuum, I'll be ready for company (on the surface at least). I finally feel like the light at the end of the tunnel isn't an on-rushing train, and my sister is helping with the party planning which takes a load off my mind.
I've been reading other blogs but not commenting as often as I should- everyone out there is doing a magnificent job and I look forward to getting back to the normal cure once the family arrives. Thanks for all your support!
