A Happy Friday to you all my dear blogger friends. I am majorly excited today as you can prolly tell.
My friend Elaine is coming to visit us this weekend. We will pick her up from the airport tonight. I am really excited. She is a lovely person and even though we go long periods without talking to each other we seem to pick up where we left off with ease. Elaine’s an even bigger chatterbox than me and I can already see my husband’s desperate plea for silence. However this is not going to happen. At least not until Sunday night. Elaine enjoys good craic and so do I and we will use the short weekend to catch up over one or more bottles of wine. She is one of my favorite Irish friends and she is definitely not a party pooper. I love hanging out with her. There’s never a dull moment.
The weather is godawful and she really didn’t pick the best time to see Bavaria in all its glory. The snow has almost melted away, it is foggy, damp and cold. Okay maybe she will feel right at home seeing as she’s calling Ireland her home. We haven’t made any plans yet as to what we’re going to do but I am sure I will take her into town so she gets to see Munich while she is here. Now if you all keep your fingers crossed and hope and pray with me collectively that the sun will come out, I will be forever grateful.
I hope to post some pictures of whatever it is that we're going to be doing.
Anyway I totally digressed and forgot what I wanted to say. Do any of you get into some sort of cleaning frenzy before guests arrive? I always get stressed out. Working full time and all hobbies aside we only clean once a week. Mostly on Saturdays. Meaning that this was almost a week ago. So right after work and before heading to the airport I have an hour and a half to clean six rooms and two cat litterboxes...Thankfully the hubby will help out as he usually does. Gosh I love him even more for it.
How do you do it? Is it just me that get's totally freaked by cleaning? I swear it stresses me to the point where I want to just throw down my mop and bucket and run like Forrest Gump. Enough whining already. I will survive as I have every other time we had visitors. I just want it to be clean because I can't stand being in somebody's house and step on crumbs or touch something that is sticky or be in a dirty bathroom. That freaks me out. I wish I had a more relaxed approach towards it so I would not stress as much. Seriously how do you do it and do you have any tips?
