Today is the last day I have to get as much as possible done for Thanksgiving. My daughter and son-in-law will be in late this evening. I want to have as much as possible done by the time they get here so I can enjoy the time with them and the rest of the family that will be coming over on Thursday.
I overslept this morning. I kept waking up with my throat a little scratchy during the night. I'm hoping it was just a matter of my throat being dry. I had turned up the heat a little bit trying to get the couches to dry a little faster. I don't want to get sick this week. Next week will be fine.
So, I will have to kick butt a little to catch up from my late start. But I can do this. I know that people really don't look at how clean a house is (unless it's a disaster!). But, as this is the first time in my life that I've lived on my own, I guess I'm just a little more anxious to have things looking good. Because it is my daughter's place and her furniture is still here, there's still a big Sherry influence. But, I've still been taking care of it and trying to add my own personal touches here and there.
I have been so busy trying to get things ready that I haven't really worried too much about the lack of money coming in. I'm still spending time every day applying for jobs. But I haven't spent as much time as I normally do. Next week, it's back to the grindstone. I still am very worried about the lack of money coming in, but I'm taking a break in order to enjoy the company of my daughter. The worry can wait til next week.
The only thing lacking this week is the fact that my baby and her boyfriend can't make it. But, I'm counting on being able to at least Skype with her while everyone is here. That way, it will at least seem like she's here. I try not to think about that too much - I just get down about it.
So, I'm off and running!
