Is your house presentable for company?

January 29th, 2008 at 06:05 pm

Mine sort of is...but I think I have low standards...Discussing Games nights here, a friend was surprised that we are ready for any Friday, and frequently get guests on supposed 'off Fridays'.

We don't mind, any time we can play games and hang out with grown ups for free is cool with us.

Now truth to tell if you object to dust, sorry the kids are the only ones who dust, and not very well. or if you mind that the floor will be swept after I say hello, well it needs done after every meal, and dinner was just finished (and snack time is soon, so if you weren't here we cheat and do it after both...)

Or if you object to the stack of Christmas boxes on one chair in the living room..well I can't reach where they belong anymore (husbands stuff in my way) so umm sit on one of the other chairs please. If any of that bothers you, then no we are not company ready.

I would rather have company than feel worked up into needing a perfect house every time someone came over...just do give me 15 minutes of warning so I can make the kids clean up their mess and fill the dishwasher. Smile

    I keep my living room neat but that's all. We never use it and of course, we have no kids!!

    My house is barely presentable enough for the new (cheaper and better) cleaner! But I figure if you're going to be my friend, you better know and love the real me.

    I try to keep my house clean ...

    And then my daughter comes up behind me and moves everything out of where I just put it.

    Drives me NUTS!

    My living room and dining room always look presentable -- if you don't mind the traces of dogs and whatever my child may have dumped in the entry way. But beyond that, I've quit worrying about it. I always wonder about those homes you walk into that are perfect and there are children living in the house. In fact, I'm leary of sending my child for playdates in those homes. It's just not natural.

    compulsive debtor you have it there, I worry when I step into an immaculate house that my feet are too dirty, and I will touch the wrong thing! And i never want to let my kids in the door!

    even with daily vacuuming my floor still shows the effects of three kids by the time a guest arrives in the evening...

    Whether our house is presentable really depends on your definition of presentable. If you expect everything to be clean, every surface to be dust-free and see no evidence that there is actually a family living there, then no, it isn't presentable. If, however, you don't mind seeing some freshly washed laundry piled on the sofa or a couple of jackets hung on the backs of the kitchen chairs or a craft project underway on the table, then come on over.

    exactly...I think it is the perfectionists who can't have company half the time...the other half it is me right after a kid is born, I can't get anything done! So if you are coming, come prepared to clean please Smile Or bring food at least.
