Editing mix-up

Well, crap.

I got edits for my first solo venture with a new to me publisher a few weeks ago, with a due date in May. I responded confirmation with a minor note and never heard anything back. Because of our trip and how busy I was being on my own, I decided to put off starting until we got back. Then I got sick, so that's been slow going, right?

Today, I got an email from the head editor saying she made a mistake on the due date and meant to put *March* instead of May so how soon can I get them in (since technically I'm now late)?

*headthunk*

I told her the end of the month, of course, because I want to be as professional as possible. I just wish I'd started sooner in spite of everything just so I was further along now.

*races off to edit*
