I’m so happy that my parents are coming down to visit in December. I have a lot to do though. My house is a mess….eek! It happens when you are a family of 5 that all work from home with jobs and school. We are ALWAYS here. Our house is very lived in.
So in preparation of my parents coming we have a schedule of things to get done around here. I’m talking decluttering, deep cleaning….all of it. Wanna help?
One of the things that I need to get done is area rug cleaning as well as the carpet in general. Morgan fostered two cats recently. They were kenneled, but I still feel like the carpets need to be cleaned because my mom has asthma. I used to have a rug cleaner, but it was bulky and hard to use, so I got rid of it. I think I need to look into having someone come in and do this for me. We seriously need the stairs leading up to the second floor done, as well as the 2 bedrooms that the girls use. I imagine it will make it look a lot newer once it is done, not too mention it will probably smell a lot better up there!
That is probably the only think I will need some help with and I’ll be looking into hiring someone to see how much it costs. Other than that it is just general decluttering and organizing. I found some apps for my iPad and plan on making lists and breaking it down in to little chunks. If the girls and I all tackle one area at a time I bet we can fly right through it.
So are you like me? Would you freak to get things done and in order before your parents come? Eeeeeeek!
