I'm not the only one who does this!
So, some of you probably know by now that I'm not the best housekeeper. I'll usually look for other things to do first before I clean my house, unless it really starts looking bad - then I get busy. (We don't live in filth - we just can tolerate a little mess.) I like to know when people are coming by so I can make sure it doesn't look like a disaster when they walk in. If I've procrastinated and realize I don't have enough time to really clean like I should before company arrives, I've done the mad dash to shove all the toys and clothes behind bedroom doors and shut them. That fools people, right? I've gotten pretty good at "fakin it", and I didn't know if I was the only one who did this, but then I read this article, and I had to smile in recognition. So if you do have a chance to spend some time at my house, and you even get past the closed bedroom doors, and things look pretty decent behind them, well you should feel pretty special, because not everyone gets the "every room clean" treatment, not even us most of the time.
