Just for the Record

I just wanted to write down for my own benefit that at this moment my WHOLE house is clean.  That includes all the laundry, all the dishes, dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, moping, and 3 bathrooms.  I wanted to write it down because I am sure that it is only a matter of minutes before that changes.  This is all in preparation for my mom coming tonight.  I just figured out why I have to have a perfectly clean house when my parents come.  It is because the child inside of me feels like my mom is going to come in and check all the nooks and crannies to make sure I did it right.  Like when I was a kid having to clean my room, even though she has never done that and I know she doesn't think that I can't help it.  But I do enjoy having it so clean for a time.  Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me?

My house was clean before my company too. It didn't last long. It is nice, if even for a fleeting moment! :)

I clean my house when my parents come, too. My dad was, or should I say is very clean. Last time he came to visit he clean my microwave.

Having 4 kids has taught me to let go sometimes. I just can't do it all. However when company comes I clean.
