Can I do it?

My oldest friend mentioned coming in for my birthday. And she'd like to stay here. In my sty. Gulp.

This gives me a little more than 90 days to get this hovel in order? Can I do it?

Here's what's in my favor:

1) My oldest friend has clutter issues, too. So I know that she won't judge my finished effort harshly.

2) It has to be done. I'd really like to get new drapes, to have the place painted, to clean my carpets. But there's so much STUFF in the way. So I can keep prodding myself by saying, "It has to be done. It simply has to be done," in order for me to get what I want.

3) I am deadline driven. I have worked on deadline for 30 years. I don't miss them. My clients never suffer, no matter what. I just have to channel that professional energy into my personal life.

If you're a regular visitor, you know all the many, many issues that work against me. It'll just make me sad to list them here.

Wish me luck!
