Welcome rider - great place for company.

So, folks, am in a panic! My ancient mother is coming to stay for a few days, this place is worse than usual (she tried all her life to get me to be tidy and have to admit, she failed!)
I started to purge and stopped - books all over the place, chairs undressed from their covers, piles of things that need sorting. Only today to get it finished.
What a wonderful day ahead!

Foxhunter, eeek! When my mother used to come visit, I would stow things in the closets.... wishing you a productive day of stowing and sweeping.

Also, love your response to Stan, you've really put him in a jam proving that NZ'ers aren't fruits!

Oh How I can and do relate to clutter,clutter everywhere being a reality here. We just recently had new floating laminate flooring put down in our kitchen, dining area and main hallway. I have been talking up to my husband about getting a rental dumpster to get rid of a lot of things we never ever use.

One of my geldings is actually down in southwest MO for training - and I believe the trainers themselves are giving a clinic in Orlando FL, so I will be keeping fingers crossed that their ranch and the horses are safe this weekend.

Candandy, near Joplin, is right in the path of the worst storms again. Keeping her and her family in my prayers that they don't have to deal with this again.
Yes, we have been watching the weather reports anxiously and I have been sky watching since Friday and yesterday. One of my sisters lives in the Norman,OK/OKC area and she and her husband barely got by-passed by the tornado that went through there Friday.

Hopefully we will get through this Spring's Storm Season with no major issues to deal with. Thank You so very much, Ladytrails for thinking of us....

Foxhunter... this reply is probably too late to help, but if I were you I would invite all my friends over to help tidy up and reward them with a dinner that you can cook easily all in one pot or a slow cooker!

I understand about the mother situation. My mother will not visit my house and has stood me up many times on holiday get togethers. Why? She makes all kinds of excuses, but my late sister (who is just like her) says it is because she doesn't like animals in the house. I have a couple of pet dogs inside. My house doesn't smell and I do keep it reasonably clean. Mom never understood the "pet" concept.

Good luck!
