FOUR DAYS until Becca, Tom and CJ get here! I’m so excited I could pee my pants (literally, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much coffee this morning!). I haven’t seen Becca since she left for Arizona umpteen billion years ago. But I’m also in a panic now, as my lofty intentions to clean the house a little bit at a time fell all to Hell, and I’ve got a major exam this week and a paper to write, and an extremely messy house to boot. But I work best under pressure, so I should have the house at least presentable (and the Christmas tree finally down) by the time they get in late Saturday night. I’ve been putting in overtime at work, and next week’s a holiday, so I’ve tentatively arranged to take Thursday off as my last vacation day, Friday is a holiday, and my extra hours hopefully will allow me to leave early Monday-Wednesday. I’m so happy and excited I’m practically bouncing in my seat (this is making my boss look at me funny)!
