Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

If someone were to come knock on your door right now and come in, would you be embarrassed with how clean your house is?
We put our house up for sale yesterday and have been working hard to minimize the clutter that comes with having two little kids. My house is super clean now, so I wouldn't be embarrassed, but I would have been about a week ago.

Pin It!

The Boob Nazi said...

Umm, yes, I would be... Dangit.

Jingle said...

Nope. It's my house. I like it there. If you show up uninvited, well, you get what you get! LOL!

Melinda said...

no but it's still early LOL

Krystyn said...

Embarrassed? Possibly. But, don't judge the mess. I have two kids and work full time:)

kimert said...

Yep!! We are a busy busy family and live a very active lifestyle. We are home but usually late and by the time we get home, do baths, homework, etc with the kids I am just too pooped to get a whole lot done. SO, currently there are mounds of laundry...some folded/some not..on my sofa and love seat in the family room. Looks awesome (snark!).

Yes. LOL That's why people should give a courtesy warning and call to see if we are "up for company".

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Probably not! My house is a little messy right now, but not nearly the disater area that it could be!

pam said...

Always!

Auntie E said...

No my is pretty well picked up and clean, Noe I would want to answer the door because I.m still in PJs

Jamie said...

Good luck with your house...we have been house hunting so we know how clutter looks from a buyer's standpoint! Although I think we are about to the point now where we will take anything that is standing up!

Our apt. could definitely use some work but I don't think it is bad enough to be embarrassed about.

I am Harriet said...

I'm so done with that...it isn't worth getting worked up over since the reality is that most people do not have a perfect house either.

Have a great Friday!

LOL! My house is always "picked up" ~ However, at this very moment you CAN write your entire name on the wood furniture - Yikes Stripes!! :)) Happy Friday to all!

Steph said...

We're in the middle of packing and we just cleared away the girls' toys, so the first room in the house is very neat. The back rooms and the kitchen? All boxes and clutter! Good luck with the house sale!

Kuparstwn said...

99% of the time my house would be too messy. however we hosted a little get together this past weekend so i'm proud to say i'd welcome anyone knocking on my door!

Janine said...

Yeah I would be. My toddler daughter is like a little tornado!

Visiting from My Kids Are Fun for Aloha Friday!

The Gosfam said...

No not right now--I figure people come to see me, not my house (although normally pretty tide :)

Tired Mom Tésa said...

Yep. I get it clean for and then 5 minutes later the kids always have everything strewn all over again. But they're kids and that's what they do so I'd try not to be too embarrassed by it and just shrug it off.

Charlotte (Life's a Charm!) said...

i really hope nobody comes over today... i'd be too embarrassed of the house and myself!

~ Noelle said...

well, if hey knocked now... i am at a hotel, so no one is home...
but if i were, they KNOW they would not be coming in.. i need a call first to clean up! I do have a one year old :)

Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

I wouldn't be embarrassed about my house as much as I would be about the lovely toddler smudges on the TV. EVERY time I wipe it down, Alex has to go put his hands on it again. UGH! LOL

Baba said...

House? What house. I have to wait till we can get in the house to answer this one. The trailer? Who cares is my motto.

kailani said...

Now house is actually pretty clean right now thanks to DH taking the kids to the park today!

Cacai M. said...

I guess if it's some aristocrat folks but if known, it's okay.. :)

Twincerely,Olga said...

Annie said...

Great question! LOL
Actually I get surprised by my neighbor quite a bit and the Fed Ex man. No I am not terribly embarrassed....but I am not proud of how it looks either. Boy does it need cleaned - I wish I had more energy to clean it! But working my tail off cleaning all week long makes me want a day off LOL

Mighty M said...

Nope! Cause I swept, vacuumed, and mopped this morning! :)

But most of the time I probably would be. :)
