Please, No Surprises

So I started getting everything ready to shampoo my bedroom carpet. I moved everything out of the way and vacuumed. I had just turned it off when my phone rang. It was my dad.

I hadn't seen him in a few years. He lives across the country and called to let me know he was at my brother's house five minutes away. He just wanted me to know he was on his way over. Gulp.

This is why I do not like surprise visits. Here I am, all my bedroom/bathroom furniture spread throughout the house. I'm wearing my comfortable yet not presentable stained and holey homewear. With vacuum in hand and jaw on the floor I explain to my dad I would have to see him later.

Although understanding he was disappointed. So, I decided to just hop in the shower and head over.

It was a nice visit (more later) but a VERY LONG day.

That To Do list for the week. Forget it. It's not going to happen now.

My family makes me feel demanding because I don't like these kinds of situations. I like at least a day's notice. Is that really too demanding? Really, I don't know. I want to know. Am I being rude?
