ain't it the truth...


If it weren't for the occasional visitor,
this house would never get cleaned...

Can you relate? I can. We have a houseful of family arriving this week for the wedding festivities this weekend. As a result we are giving the house a good once over. I used to run a pretty tight ship when the kids were young. My house was spic and span back then. Now, not so much. These days I tend to put off the heavy duty cleaning until necessary. "Necessary" meaning -- until someone visits. Fortunately, we have visitors fairly often. Otherwise, I would be in trouble. Our first arrivals are due tomorrow. By Thursday night all of the family will have arrived. So excited. So very excited. Not only is there a wedding at the end of the week, but it will be the first time in over two years that our immediate family will all be together. Let the festivities begin!

I agree with your "necessary" comment. That's what I use visiting teachers for, force myself to clean my house.

Good luck with all the wedding stuff!
