stressing

Just a quick note to ask for a few prayers... it's certainly nothing important, but a few things are stressing me out heading into tomorrow... First of all, we got in late tonight, and my hubby reminded me that tomorrow morning - between 9-11 a.m. - an appraiser is coming through our house (for re-mortgaging purposes). I had totally forgotten, and the house looks like - well, like it always looks after a weekend! Though Todd's response was "Who cares?", being a housewife, I care, and would feel terrible and ashamed having someone come through my house looking like it does at the moment. So I'll have to get up early and do some quick cleaning.

Secondly, Bryce was very excited about going to see a movie with some friends of ours tomorrow evening, and now it looks like it might not happen. It doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but to a 7 year old who has been wanting to see this movie for months, it's a huge disappointment if it doesn't happen, and I just feel bad for him. I'm not looking forward to spending the day explaining about how things like this just happen, and sometimes can't be helped, and not letting him get an attitude or spend the day moping. I know this is all part of life, it's just that he was so excited, and has spent the past few days telling everyone about going... Like I said, certainly not a big deal to an adult, but not exactly the makings for the start of a good day.

And finally - and this is my big stresser - I'm slated for jury duty in Norristown on Wednesday morning. I really don't want to go - I'm totally freaked out about getting myself there to begin with (I've never driven anywhere near Norristown and am not one who is up for an adventure like that!), have nothing to do with my kids for the day (although they provide free child care - oh, goody, just where I want my kids to spend the day! - NOT!!), plus we would lose a day of school, which we just can't afford to do at this point. I have to check in after 4 p.m. on Tuesday to see if I need to show up on Wednesday or not (and I'd have to be there by 8:15). The whole thing pretty much has me tied in knots.

So anyway, I guess maybe I just needed to vent a bit, and would appreciate your prayers for my mundane little problems, which feel like mountains to me at the moment!

Ya know what? I am totally convinced that an appraiser DOES look at the condition of your home!! I believe it tells them something about how the upkeep is on a home. I've gone through that a couple times in my life, and I've always done what you did, Jess! NEAT & TIDY!!!

I hope you found a way to destress a little! I know that it's hard these days to balance it all.

Hopefully tomorrow will be an easy day of NO jury duty!
