get your engines started

There's nothing quite like a pending visit from the mother-in-law to inspire the necessary motivation to get the house clean. As long as I don't expire in the process.

This is what I'm saying.


  1. LOL! Yup...that kind of visit always inspires me to get things tidied up around our place.

    That picture totally explains why I dislike housecleaning so much. It always backfires in my face too. I made the mistake of dusting my ceiling fans the other day and I guess I should have worn a mask because now I have a lovely cough and even lovelier head congestion to go with it. Who knew cleaning could be so hazardous to your health!?!

  2. the worst is, when you're renting a summer apartment and your inlaws drop in for a visit and you have no clean plates or silverware and no food because you were planning on taking the kids to dinner that night and doing the dishes late at night. that happened to a friend. yeah a friend. not me. bahaaaaa.
