Hands down: Fear and shame.
Our friend Kris is bringing her daughter to college on Friday and is going to stop by, and since I live in a world where only one thing can be in order at a time, school has received all of my attention and the house has been a shambles.
A shambles ruled by kittens.
A shambles ruled by kittens who can make shredded tissues appear from thin air. Seriously – I clean up all the tissues, dump the trash, and two minutes later there are shredded tissues all over!
Anyway, we spent the evening making the house presentable in anticipation of Kris’ visit. I hope she’s not too weepy about leaving her daughter at Concordia, because I’m certainly not going to offer her a tissue.
