please call first.

Today was a good reminder at why I need order and structure in my day.

I decided not to get Zachariah up at his usual time and because of it ended up being a half our late to meet a friend. completely barfy.


I decided not to follow my complete "schedule"... EVER.. to have the bathroom cleaned and laundry folded and the floors mopped etc. So when at the last minute I invited two people over for supper.. to completely different realms of people.. a friend and her two little ones and one of my exchange students. I was out of my mind stressed out because on top of making sure I remember everything I should get at the grocery store I knew I had five minutes to get home and turn my natural disaster of a house into a place that wouldn't cause guests to throw up their hamburger. Running around looking for the toilet scrubber handle.. never found it.. and still glad no one had to use the facilities... using a papertowel to get the large pieces of nasties off the floor.. no time to vacuum the rug... If I would have just been on top of it it wouldn't have been a big deal. And I'd be more comfortable having people over spur of the moment and trying to bless them in some way.

It all turned out fine in the end. But maybe next week I'll try to channel Alice.
