My mantra: "There's a place for everything, and everything has a place." You got it, to sum it up, I'm pretty much a neat freak. I love fresh vacuum marks and my momma taught me to make the bed every morning. The thought of actually crawling into unmade sheets gives me the jeebies. Call me a little OCD and really, I'm ok with that.
Well, hubby and I have been empty nesters for over four years now, as it was four years ago our son left for the Marine Corps and our other two, have been on their own for quite some time.
Yesterday my brother and sister-in-law and neices from up north came down to visit. My neices were soooooo excited at the thought of staying with Auntie Karen and Uncle Bill. I just knew that Emily, the youngest neice (10) would INSIST on staying in the "Princess Room" as she calls it. It's decorated in kind of French Toile theme. Katherine (18) would get the other spare room with the hide-a-bed.
So, I woke this morning and headed into the office whilst the girls were deep in slumber land I'm sure. I only planned to stay at the office for a few hours as I wanted to get home at an early hour to start preparing dinner for all of us, including my folks. I got home to a quiet house, only to be greeted by Rodney, our beloved pooch. I call out "anybody home"....silence. I wasn't surprised as I figured most likely that once the two little angels woke up, they would head down to my folks house where my brother and SIL were staying.
Wasn't my OCD personality surprised to catch a glimpse of the following! As an added bonus, Emily's panties were laying in the middle of the hallway (you can thank me for sparing you a photo shot of that one!) My immediate thought was "Thank GOD we don't have our home on the market!"
I had to restrain myself from tidying up and decided just to shut each of the doors. LOL. I love Katherine and Emily to death! Even though they are leaving tomorrow and I'm really going to miss them, I will feel a sense of "peace" knowing that the rooms will get a good straightening up.
Agents, you have my word. If you EVER have access to my home for showing to clients, it will NOT look like this! LOL
Enjoy your day!
