M-I-L Visit Tomorrow!


My mother-in-law is coming tomorrow for her annual visit and bringing a friend of hers.

The bathroom is starting to resemble a science experiment. Eek! Much cleaning needs to be done and Hubby has (conveniently) disappeared.

Our old bathtub long ago lost its finish so the porcelain is now soft and porous. Everything sticks to it and stains. Requires three different applications of toxic chemicals to get it looking clean.

M-I-L says company is always good motivation to clean the house. She's right, but dang I hate doing it. I don't see those grimy baseboards on a day-to-day basis, but when I know company's coming they're glaringly nasty. Oy Vey.

I've also noticed the two definitions of 'clean'. Having company over changes perceptions of what clean is. My goal is to keep things 15 minutes from true clean. Nice goal, rarely accomplished.
