Have you ever done this?

So today I had some friends call to say they we're driving thru and wanted to drop by the house to say hi. These are a couple of girls I went to college with and really only talk to a couple of times a year anyway. So I tell them to come on and then have to speed clean all the downstairs room. The last thing I'm doing is sweeping the kitchen floor right as the doorbell rings, I look around and can't find my dustpan so being as I'm trying to hurry I just sweep it all under the fridge. I just know my mother would be so ashamed!

  • Lmao, sounds like something I would do! Oh well, if your fridge is like most you can just roll it out and clean it up. Like my Mom used to say when we were in a hurry to clean up, "just give it a lick and a promise" lol

  • Whew!!! I once put a hug pile of dishes in the oven to hide them LMAO THEN put a dish towel over the oven handle so you couldn't see inside..... well when people just drop in on you, you're not always prepared.....

    OMG Momma always said the same thing!

  • lol...ok I am always reminded of one Rosanne episode where Dan says "we aren't going for clean, we are going for the illusion of clean!" I try to keep my house fairly clean, but sometimes I only get the "illusion of clean"

  • Yea I've been known to shove the laundry baskets in my room when I haven't got a chance to finish folding! I'm all for the illusion of clean! As long as it's not dirty, a little messy never hurt anyone!
