I've invited over extremely neat people for lunch today.

Extremely fastidiously clean and neat.

Which I am not.

Now, all I can think is:  Why?  Why do I do this to myself? 

I am not okay enough with my own slobitude to just say "love me, love my mess"  (mostly because I don't love other people's messes, hypocrite!), so I am a headless chicken this morning.

What happened is that I had cleaned the house well for SIL on Sunday and invited these folks for Monday--and they had to cancel, so we rescheduled for today.  5 days of mess later.  (Even though I've been trying, really.)

Okay, must go clean, but I had to vent first.

(And, no, Al, I'm not nearly to the point of that family you helped--I'm just hoping Kim doesn't! think so...)

EDIT:  Here are pics of my clean living and dining rooms.  Well, clean for me!
