I don’t think anything motivates me to get things done around the the "nest" more than when I know I have company coming. For me it’s not a matter of washing sheets and cleaning the toilet. When I find out company is coming I all of a sudden have the burst of energy to accomplish projects I’ve been putting off. I love lots of lead time so I can prepare and get as many projects done as possible.
Since the girls are sharing their beds with our guests I was motivated to spruce up their room. I couldn't believe the things I found stashed under their beds, especially C's. Oh my!
Now that the "nest" is clean we can enjoy family that came all the way from Brazil and California.
