For many of us, I'm sure the answer is CLEAN.
Why the hell do we do this?
Company = more bodies = more foot traffic = more dirt
Company= more food = more stains = more dishes = more garbage
Company = more bathroom utilization = yucko toilets
Company = more children = more chaos = more toys strewn about
Which all leads to an even messier house when everyone leaves!
Do I sound like a totally antisocial wench?
I'm really not.
In fact, I love having people over. I love getting together with friends. I love entertaining. Hubby and I both do.
But I hate that I spend hours and hours cleaning before company arrives, only to have to start all over again (and then some) the next day!
This drives me crazy. And it's totally frustrating.
Yet God forbid anyone come over and my Trenches are filthy. I would never be able to live with that. *shudder*
So I continue to clean Before. And then clean again After. *sigh*
