So this has happened twice in the past few months.
People have stopped by because they happened to be in the neighborhood. Both times it is someone we know who lives in the city (read an hour and a half away).
Anyway, they happen to be out this way and figure since they know our address they will just stop by to say hi.
Both times the people had never been to our house before.
The first time we were remoddeling our kitchen. It was 95 degrees out, but the AC was off so we could have the windows open while we painted etc. The entire house is a disaster because we've been working only in the kitchen.
Then today people stop by. They have never been here, but since I've been sick for two days the house is not very presentable.
I hate that. I feel compelled to tell them that the house usually looks SO much better etc.
Why couldn't they call from the gas station to at least give me a few minutes to straighten up?
Don't get me wrong. I really like these people. I just hate that my house looked like crap the first time they ever get to see it!
