Okay. That isn't really my house, but it's sort-of (not really) close is messiness?

And I need to clean it. I say "need" because just three days ago we were notified that littlepartner's mother had plane tickets and was going to "surprise" us today (Friday) with a visit. So I have... about three hours to finish at least hiding all the mess/drugs/sex toys and vacuuming and cleaning up and doing the dishes and laundry and... oh my I'm totally freaking out.

I did a good deal of work yesterday, but I was off in Philly for work Mon to Wed at which point I collapsed after making the drive home to Boston.

Oh, I'm also working because I work from home. But that also makes me default cleaner/launderer/seamstress/cat-vomit-cleaner.

So please please please GT, motive me to be done with this so I can be less stressed! Also accepted will be confirmations that surprise visits from parents with three-days of notice are totally not okay.

Also, I've already moved from being immensely upset over this "surprise" to begrudgingly giving up my weekend without too much of a peep to someone else's really shitty decisions.

HELP!

EDIT: Headphones in, Against Me! blaring and I'm about to start on the kitchen while screaming along!

EDIT2: I still have an hour and I'm almost done! Also I have swapped to Flux of Pink Indians and Crass from my big speakers because I'm the only one home and I can listen to abrasive music at loud volumes!

EDIT3: I DID IT! I AM AWESOME AND I DID WAY MORE THAN I THOUGHT I COULD! THANK YOU ALL SO VERY VERY VERY MUCH!
