I've been reading my house book, "Love It or Leave It." No, that's wrong somehow. It's "Love the House You Have," and I've been loving it - the book and the house I have. One suggestion she had was to schedule a party, invite people over, and let that deadline be a good incentive to get your house looking nice. I'm more of an introvert than the author, and I don't really want to throw a party. I'd rather just stay at home with my family. We are having company in a few weeks, so I guess there is my incentive.
And I can invite you over, too! Here is my living room last night. I'll work on quieting and prettying the room today, and hopefully I'll get a nicer picture posted tonight. See you then!
