This weekend, my daughter and her boyfriend will be visiting us from Michigan. Because it’s been a while since they’ve seen them, several of our friends are coming over on Saturday evening to get together and catch up.
I’d like to share a little glimpse into our household as we prepare for company. Remember, everybody who lives in my house has Attention Deficit Disorder.
It’s Wednesday evening as I write this. I cleaned the kitchen really well on Monday, but I doubt that it will last until Friday, even with daily upkeep. That’s it. I’ve done nothing else other than vacuum and dust.
Wait until Friday – when you will see me rushing around like a crazy person, cleaning bathrooms and doing last minute shopping.
In contrast, my husband has decided that this is just the week to:
- Clean out the garage
- Shampoo the carpets
- Climb into the attic to assess damage from the rains from Hurricane Ike
- Prime and paint two bedroom ceilings
- And possibly paint the bedroom, too – yes, the one she will be sleeping in
Did I mention he’s repairing the dryer?
Oh, and for the record – he got laid off on Friday, so this is partially his answer to not working – for pay, anyway.
I don’t know how much we will get done this week – I do have work to do as well – I just know that when our daughter arrives, we’ll both probably be too tired to stay up and visit.
Does this sound at all familiar to anyone else, or is it just us?
