Just Stop By

A friend called the other day and asked if she could stop by. Why not? That's the easiest way! If you drop in on me you can't complain that the bed isn't made or that there is dirty clothes in the bathroom floor. You can say nothing of the smell of poopie diapers in the air. If the kids are still in jammies and it's after lunch, oh well, you dropped in! But if you call a day in advance I am obligated to make the bed, pick up the dirty clothes, take out the garbage full of poopies, and dress the kids! So by all means just stop by!
So what do you think? Would you rather someone drop in or call a day ahead?

I think both. I had a call ahead today so I rushed to vacuum, do dishes, straighten the girls' room, etc. It stresses me out. There are definitely those people in our life that can pop in anytime and it doesn't matter what the house looks like. We say they have "refrigerator rights." The kind of friend that can pop in any time and that can walk up to your fridge, open it up, and take whatever they want (and you aren't even mortified by what they might find growing in your tupperware:)). I love those people in my life!

Thanks for being so real.

Enjoy your holidays!

Has to be drop-ins - if they call first I will find all kinds of reasons to avoid their visit and all related emergency cleaning!

You would make a great neighbor...

I love the drop-ins, too! But then they're the ones that know me so well I don't mind them seeing/ignoring the messes.

Hope you and your family have a nice christmas!

I think that I am a bit of both - love the drop ins and then there are other people that I wish would give me notice!

I love the friends that know that my house is always full of craft and love!
