~TIP"S TO GET READY FOR COMPANY~

You ever have one of those weeks where you didn't get a thing done ?? of Course you have... My Daughter Gina and her boy friend our coming today for the weekend...Oh NO!! I have been on this dang machine all week instead of cleaning and cooking...


So the first TIP I have for you is take a HAPPY Chill out Pill.....



Carry out the Cat !!!



Make a List....This is very Important !!!




Move the car...




Fix a Gourmet Dinner...
Take the frozen store bought cake out...So she thinks I been baking....


Change all the light bulbs in the house to VERY low wattage so she can't see the dust...And last but not least spray Pine-Sol by the door so she thinks I have been cleaning all week !!!

Hope all of you have a GREAT weekend...me I need to get my to do list done....Oh the things I do as a Mother !!! the list goes on and on....
Hugs and Smiles Gl♥ria

Connie said...

At least ya got your priorities right, chick!!! I say if they see dust then you can do 2 things: ask them if they saw that wild funnel of dirt swirling outside just before they got there OR hand them a rag and tell them you've been cooking all day for their coming over and didn't have time to dust before OR thrown caution to the wind and tell them to heck with it all, you've been blogging and got life's priorities straight after all.....

Connie ;-)

This was hilarious! You must have read my feeble mind, I was just thinking that I've gotten nothing accomplished because of blogging, then I said what the heck! I love your "designer" cat carrier, wonder if we'll be seeing Miss Paris Hilton carrying one of these anytime soon? Thanks for the belly laugh! Hugs, Kathy

LOL! thanks for the chuckle!

Glenda said...

Do you remember seeing someone (not you of course) write their name in the dust on a dirty automobile. Well, I tell my guests that it is alright to write their name in the dust at my home, but please don't put the date.

I'm so far behind that I think I'm in first place, without realizing that the ones coming up behind me have already been around the track once and that I'm actually dead last.

Enjoy the visit.
