Is There a Hospitality Gene that I Missed?

So, I need to figure out how to get rid of my husband and daughter.

I don't think I need to contact the mafia, however...

I just want to clean the house.

I found out that my brother in law and his family are coming into town next weekend.

Yesterday, I began panicking. The good news is: I toook a few deep breaths (people say it helps, but I think it's overrated) and I'm not panicking anymore.

I've advanced to...

Oh yeah, I understand. I cant clean with people in the house... I always ask Matt if he wants to go see a movie. You have my sympathy!

Hi! Didja get it clean enough? I hope that you got it CLEAN enough! I hate that stress!

Hope all of yours are well!

I think I'll see you on Tuesday?

Peace and chicken grease!

My husband and daughter make good helpers. I make a list of what I want done, because we all know that a woman's idea of "clean" and a man's idea of "clean" are two veeeeerrrry different things. I lay the list on the table, everyone picks a task, and we all work together to get it all done. Crossing off items on the list really helps us feel like we are accomplishing something and it makes it crystal clear what needs doing. After it is all done, we go do something FUN! Works for me!

Good luck and enjoy your company!!!
