The Interruption of Everything is a 2005 book written by Terry McMillan.
Plot summary 
Marilyn Grimes, a 44-year-old mother of three has spent her time deferring her dreams to create the perfect suburban life for her family: her grown-up children, her live-in mother-in-law, an elderly poodle named Snuffy, and her workaholic husband Leon. She also keeps in touch with her friends (Paulette and Bunny), her aging mother, and her foster sister while juggling a part-time job as an amateur crafts maker. This is a story of a woman who has too much on her plate and nothing to feed her desires and dreams.
