Coming Down the Home Stretch

My house is a mess, the dishes are piling up, the kitchen floor’s gone unmopped for nearly three weeks, I haven’t dusted in at least that long, and the socks on top of the pile of unfolded laundry in my bedroom is getting altitude sickness. My stack of mail and bills are resembling the leaning tower of Pisa.

Clearly I’m in The Deadline Zone.
