We had some family over for an impromptu round of drinks last night. Our place was a palace of filth. There has been no time to clean the last few days.
Then again, my house is rarely clean. I hate it. I would say about 5% of the time, my place is as ready as can be for guests. Generally when we have drop-ins, I am wondering if there is just one sheet of toilet paper left in the bathroom and I stay busy attempting to keep people out of the kitchen before they see a sink full of dishes and other horrors. The only good news is that since I have been trying my Drink of the Week program, we now have a nicely stocked bar. I figure if I can get 'em drunk, they won't notice the dog hair everywhere.
Is your place generally ready for company? If you were out with a group of friends and everyone suggested to wrap up the night with a few glasses of wine at your place, would you be ready for showtime?
