And if your friends do care, maybe they're not the type of friends you need to be having over. Real friends don't care if you cleaned your house. They just want to have a fun evening with you. Now, if your house is a total pig-sty, well then I don't know what to tell you. Maybe hire a housecleaner to come before your company arrives.
Don't clean your house!
So you had a lovely evening with your friends, they enjoyed your spaghetti and ice cream... now what? Don't do the dishes. Sit, enjoy your time with your friends. Play a game, talk for hours, laugh and have fun. DO NOT ruin the evening by disappearing into the kitchen for an hour to "clean up for just a second..." The dishes can wait. Savor the moments with your friends.
Don't do your dishes!
The point is this: HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FRIENDS. Don't worry about if your house is perfect. Don't stress and exhaust yourself before they even arrive. The people who matter won't care, and the people who care don't matter.
Ok so that's my life advice for the day. What do you think? Do you agree or disagree?
