Are You Ready For Company?

Tell me, how would this scenario play out at hour home? – A friend calls and tells you that she has unexpectedly gotten some free time next week and would like to come visit for a couple of days.

What is your first reaction?

§  A       Joy – You are truly excited to see her.

§  B      Unease – You are excited to see her, but you are a little anxious about getting the house ready in time.   

§  C       Horror – You are in a full panic because your house is so cluttered that there is no way to get it ready for company in just one week, let alone a month.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your answer could always be choice A? Even choice B wouldn’t make you lose sleep. However answer C would throw anyone into a tailspin. Life does get busy and we can’t always keep up with the clutter the way we should, unfortunately if we don’t catch up with it regularly we end up facing a mountain that seems impossible to conquer.

So if you are at the point where you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start – ask for help. Chip away at it slowly, with patience and persistence you will get the home you’ve always envisioned. Most importantly though – once you’ve achieved your “level of being organized” you need to remember that regular maintenance is a must to keep you from backsliding.  

So get started today and don’t miss out on life’s impromptu visits!
