Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Do you enjoy entertaining/ having people visit your home?

Why or why not?


It seems like everyone I know loves having people over. I have always felt awkward/uncomfortable with people being over. My house is never feels clean enough (even if it is spotless). It is a huge relief for me when people go home. I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with me, lol.

 I also have the dog problem. We have crates. Or if it is nice they can go outside and play. We have a fenced in back yard,

I don't care to have people over either. We have a large dog who gets very excited so we have to put her in another room and I hate that.

I actually prefer to go to someone else's house, but don't mind having friends/family here as well.

There are only a few people I don't mind coming to my home because their visit isn't about me entertaining them rather it's a visit and we're all relaxed enough around them, they around us that it's not forced, stressful or dull.

I think I probably wouldn't mind having people over as much if our house was bigger. We just have a couch & no other seating in the living room. So if we have guests over we have to sit on the floor while the guests get the couch. Or sit on kitchen chairs. I guess my home just isn't fit for entertaining. Oh well, works for me!
