Cleaning Machine

I started in depth cleaning last night but got a late start due to car issues. It was making a very funny noise so I called my brother about it. I took it out the the shop and he determined it was the air conditioner clutch. He removed a part and told me what to order so now I don't have air conditioning, but at least the engine isn't squealing. So I continued cleaning - vacuuming all the cobwebs, cleaning the shelves and brick by the fireplace sweeping etc. I did that until about 1:00 a.m. Then I was up again at 6:30 a.m. going at it again. I really shouldn't leave things until the last minute - but I typically do better work under pressure. I went to the grocery store at 7:30 this morning to get laundry detergent (and donuts) and then went to Sonic for a large coke. I got the living room done and almost the kitchen and entry way. I really just need to clear stuff and then mop the kitchen and entry way and I'll be done with those rooms. In about 45 minutes I need to take a shower and then go back to the store to get stuff for Josh's after prom party. Then I have to go to the school and leave my sub plans for Tuesday. After that, I'll have to go to Mass tonight since I'm leaving for Austin early tomorrow morning. Then I have to continue cleaning. I have to tackle Josh's bathroom (disgusting) and the spare bedroom. My room is still pretty clean other than needing to vacuum and put a few things away.
Why am I doing all this you ask? (O.k. maybe you didn't ask, but I'll tell you anyway.) The appraisal on the house will probably happen sometime next week. Since I'll be gone until Tuesday evening, I have no other time to do all this. Also, I have family coming in next week for Josh's graduation. My aunt & uncle and my sister are coming in from Albuquerque. My brother will attend as well. My dad can't come since he had to go to Mississippi for a job.
Well, I've taken long enough of a break. I better get back to work.
