there's no way in hell your mother will ever live with us
I did it! I finished the project which is due tomorrow with many hours to spare, without losing any nights of sleep and without any freak-outs... well, except for yesterday's, but that was not really about the project, so it doesn't count. And the good news is that, tomorrow, after I drop the papers off, I will be totally and completly free to do anything I want, which, right now, means manual artistic work! I so need it right now. It will help me feel so much better, I just know it.
