This afternoon I was trying to get out of the house for a meeting and got a call for a showing of the house. They wanted to be here in 25 min. WHAT!!!!!????? The girls had just gotten out of the tub and we needed to work FAST! We came up with 2 shortcuts.

I had a sink frull of dirty dishes and a dishwasher full of clean and they would be at our house in 3 minutes. What to do??? We got plastic bags and filled them with dirty dishes and brought them with us. Yep we did.
I had also been doing laundry and had a pile of dirty clothes on the floor and a pile of clean towels on top of the dryer. The dryer had clean clothes in it and the washer had a rug I had just washed. Here it is 10 pm and I go in to see how my little helpers did in there today. When I looked in there before the showing the only thing I knew was everything was gone. They know how to get ready for a showing and hide everything. They had stuffed all the dirty clothes and clean towels in with the freshly cleaned rug. I guess tomorrow I'll have some stuff to wash again.
Now we'll just wait and see if they even want the house. I did make it to the meeting. It was a homeschool meeting for our co-op and we all got the classes we wanted. I will be teaching a class with my friend 'Across The USA In A Chevrolet'. There was way too much crazy in this day.

LOL! I would have never thought of bagging up dishes! I needed you when Elizabeth Dole popped by my house! Of course, a few dishes wouldn't have been the issue here. lol

I hope the showing went well!

My house is lived in messy. I always say, it's nothing a 15 minute warning can't cure. I do the dump everything in the laundry basket trick. lol
