So before guests show up at our house, there is usually a bit of work to be done. Earlier in the year, I wrote about cleaning up before a party. A party means that the common rooms need to be cleaned, straightened and vaccuumed.
A guest means that we need to totally clear out our second bedroom. Although there is also straightening, vaccuuming, and general cleaning involved, mostly it requires moving stuff. That's right, we merely move all the extra crap from the middle room into the back room, and voila! The room is beautiful.
|I wish any of the rooms in our house were this clean . . .|
Luckily, at the moment we have a guest for a month. Luca, a graduate student from Italy is staying at our house. This means our middle room is spotless and the back room is difficult to enter. We can only hope that when he leaves, we will finally start sorting and getting rid of stuff, thereby creating two gorgeous, neat rooms.
Yeah, like that's going to happen!
