Friend just calls and says she is in the neighborhood and wants to stop in for coffee. The house is a mess - what to do? Prop some get-well cards on the mantle, she will think you have been ill.
Have two dust mops. One new and clean to shake out the front door in view of the nosy neighbor and the everyday one to shake outside the back door in privacy.
Made me smile -- hope they did you too. Are you smiling MaryAnn?
My house needs more than humor today so I better go get that dust mop and start chasing the dog hair. Have a blessed day.
