So everyone cleans before having guests over. Tonight we are having a poker night, and even though I am sure my friends will just mess the place up, we were going to do some pre-party cleaning. I figured four hours before the party would be plenty... wrong. Here I am 2 and a half hours in, I'm exhausted, AND even though my house is cleaner than it has been in a long time... I"M STILL NOT HAPPY.
I think I get this from my mom... She was a clean freak! Every day we had a list a mile long of things she needed clean.
I think it also has something to do with the fact that this is the first time I have had people over since getting my dog, I'm nervous about the dog smell that I have been tirelessly working on getting rid of, or that he will misbehave, or pee on the carpet while people are here! and I'm just nervous my friends will think my house is gross and not want to come back...
I'm the first of them to move out on my own, so none of them really understand just yet the effort that really goes into keeping a clean home. It's hard! (As I am sure all of you are aware) Especially when you are working full time.
I guess we'll see!
Wish me luck.
