I can't believe it's Friday! Although it's fantastic the weekend has finally arrived, I've got to tell you, it's a bit anxiety inducing. This is the last weekend I'll be spending at home before my mother arrives.
(yup, that was the record scratching)
Holy $%&* my mom is coming to visit!!! You need to realize that my mother has never stayed with me before. She's actually only ever visited me on a handful of occasions, for a few hours at a time. Therefore, the approaching 8-day long stint has been giving me cold sweats for at least a month. (I recently found out my sister is also coming, officially, boo-yah!) (yes, I said it, boo-yah)
She won't be here for two weeks but next weekend I'll be out of town and currently my weekdays + Sundays are completely dominated by dance rehearsals right. If it's not done this weekend, I don't stand a chance against anything that can't be shoved into the back room closet.
Any advice/tricks/tips you have to offer by way of:
1) Cleaning--what are some key things to hit/remember that make a big impact?
2) Keeping things in order for two whole weeks--How do you stay on top of it?
3) Quick styling tips--seem shallow? totally. But I mean, my mom is coming to visit... name one thing that would induce more pressure to make myself and my place look totally put together ...
"ooohh, this old thing?" *rips price tag off, wads into ball and eats when mother turns her back*
If my finances allowed I would have probably redecorated by now; however, that's not exactly realistic.
What do YOU do to prepare for family to visit?
Happy Weekend Friends
Wish me luck and loads of productivity!
