Oh Snap!

The landlord called last night at 8:30pm to tell us that she's bringing someone to look at the place today at noon! What happened to 24 hour notice? It was too late to mow the lawn. I'll just tell her we're doing a crab grass restoration project...

Not to mention, I am so not the greatest housekeeper in the world... she said she was giving me a head's up so I would have some time to "pick up the place." I wish it was that simple! :) I did take care of the counter full of dishes last night. But boy is my work cut out for me today! Of course it would just be a quick pick up if I was any good at housework. I should be fired in that area of life. I just really hate doing it, so I put it off way too long. I've never been good at it, but it just gets worse when you add more people to the mix...

Amazingly, I had broke down and swept the six dogs' worth of dog hair off the back porch. (The big dog is shedding like crazy!). Seriously, I had swept the back porch a few days ago, and I still got an entire Wal-Mart bag full of dog hair. I could have made 6 dogs out of what the one had shed back there in a few days!

At least we have two rooms full of boxes that I won't have to do anything with. The one is a bedroom upstairs that we were using as a storage room for the boxes we never unpacked ;) Then we managed to get the entire office/den area packed up this weekend. And our bedroom looks like we have about half of it packed up already... though really it was stuff that never got unpacked.

Of course all of this was to put off the inevitable for another 15 minutes... guess I better start on getting this place the least bit showable! Thank God for Lysol wipes! They make those quick clean up jobs so much quicker :)

I know exactly what you mean! It's hard to keep the house spotless while dealing with kids all day! (That's my excuse, anyway!) Well, maybe your landlord will learn to GIVE notice! lol
