I’m looking forward to having folks over more often – we don’t get a chance to be very social because we’re always so busy, and this party reminded me how many awesome people we have around us and how much we need to make more time to see them.
The hidden bonus to doing something like this is the incredibly clean house we have because we were embarrassed to show off our usual clutter and cat hair. Honestly, this place has not looked so good since the day we started bringing boxes over in the moving truck. It was a ton of work but completely worth it – I just hope we can maintain it for a while before it reverts to its natural chaotic state, which it most definitely will if we aren’t vigilant! I plan on making a conscious effort to keep everything tidy for at least a week. At the end of that week I will pledge to try for another week. And we’ll see where I end up.
