So in addition to all of the Arisia prep that I've not been able to get all week, and in the midst of the shuffling chaos of multiple houseguests, and after a week of slacking a bit in general because my body has not been kind to me (and I'm still feeling Lyrica-withdrawal sick) - I have to clean my house top to bottom tonight/tomorrow early morning.
Note: This is in fact illegal. We need 24 hours notice.
Also note: I told them we were going "out of town" Friday.
So. They've been warned that the house is chaotic. But still. I am frustrated and upset because I keep getting hit with tight deadlines and random shit today. Cannot catch a break. To recap:
* Ran out of meds
* Flat tire
* Muscle relaxant denied by doctor because I missed an appointment (which is rescheduled for next week)
* Allergy meds denied by insurance (because they no longer cover nondrowsy allergy meds, because you can get OTC Claritin - which does not work on me)
* Girl Scout cookie orders due actually today (we thought it was next week), but I got an extension til Sunday
* Massive emergency housecleaning required
And I still need to time myself reading and do my sekrit writing project. An do half-sheet flyers to tuck into my chapbooks. And pack. And get Elayna to pack.
*curls up in a still-sick ball and whimpers*
At least I will have chapbooks (thanks to saraphina_marie) and flyers for the party and Ravens in the Library (thanks to swashbucklr) and the food for the party (thanks to mgrasso for the ride) and decorations (thanks to emilytheslayer). I have my science panel covered (dry ice FTW), the teen boundaries panel prepped for. I have the ingredients for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for my reading (hafta bake tomorrow, too). I have space in the Hot Chicks with Books room. I have donations from s00j, sunspiral, and The Late Dr. Lady for the S00j benefit. I have a massage appointment for Saturday. I have plans and backup plans. I do have quite a lot done, thank goodness.
*reviews con schedule* Wait, the drum circle got bumped to midnight for a fucking circus dance? That's some fucked-up shit right there. *grumbles*
Anyway. As I've said elsewhere, this madness is largely due to the fact that I have not only a lot on my plate, but a lot of very different things on my plate. This amount of work in one area, I could handle. But I have about eight big things going simultaneously, and... that is a lot for anyone, and it is especially a lot for me, what with my difficulty processing multiple items. Once I get to the con, it will all be fine.
