  • My house is in between. I clean a little everyday..but between 2 kids and a husband there is always something left on the floor or dishes on the counter. If someone is coming over I will pick up a little and maybe run the vaccuum to pick of the dailing sheddings of the cat but I dont go crazy...if they are here to look at my house instead of visit with my family then they should probably not come over.

  • My house is usually kinda of messy/ clean but I def rush to clean up right before ppl come over and it stays that way all of like 2 days lol

  • C. Neither.

    My house hasn't got mental health issues from being largely ignored for the last... ooh, forever... and I don't need to behave as if the Queen is coming when friends come over. I'll make room to sit, if there isn't any, and maybe check for the level of horror grossness in the bathroom... but I don't want my friends to freak out and have a manic attack on their homes just because I'm coming over, so I don't do it to mine. I'd hate to think I was influencing them to do it...

  • Both. I prefer to have it clean at all times. But lets face it I have two babies that LOVE messy! And some days I would rather not clean 24/7. I always clean before company comes over, its just sometimes I have to clean A LOT more than usual! haha

  • I always have to straighten up before people come over. I have 2 kids and am in school full time. I have no time for anything and my dh is gone a lot so i'm on my own.

  • It's ok the vast majority of the time.

  • I have 2 dogs, 3 cats, a 9 month old and a messy husband. I am happy if there isn't a layer of dust on everything! I am definitely a quick clean type of person if people are coming over. A light dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom. I do clean once a week normally, but I'm not the kind to clean every little corner and every little thing when I clean. I have too many other things to do with my time then to spend it always cleaning.
