Good One

Before I tell you the full story, you need to know that this week I haven't done a thing in my was a mess! Toys, laundry, 2 crock pots that were used this week "soaking" by the sink. It has been a busy week as usual and when I had the time, I didn't want to touch it. So to say that my house needed some attention is an understatement. I had nothing going Saturday morning so my plan was to get it cleaned up. So with that...

Last night we were getting ready to say our family prayer, all kneeling in the family room...and yes, we all had to scoot something out of the way before we knelt. We all went to bed early last night, mainly because Craig had an early morning meeting with Elder L. Tom Perry. After the prayer this is the conversation:

Craig: "You know, you may want to get the house cleaned up tomorrow"
Me: "I know, I plan on it."
Craig: "Cause it would be really awkward if Elder Perry asked to come over to our house tomorrow after the meeting for lunch."
Me: "YIKES! That would be embarassing, wouldn't it?"
Caleb: "I hope he likes Mac & Cheese!"
We all got a laugh...and yes it was a great motivator for me to get my house cleaned. There wasn't really a chance that it would have happened. But it made me laugh the way Craig finally found a way to get me to clean the house. Seriously, I would have been so embarassed if anyone had come over, (which some people did), but I would have DIED if Elder Perry came over with my house looking like it did. This morning was a very productive morning. I got almost everything done, of course there is still a few loads of laundry to do. But my house is cleaned up, so if you were thinking of stopping by, now would be a good time.

So I realize that the whole point of your post is about your house. But I can't seem to get over the fact that your hubby had a "meeting" with Elder Perry! How exciting is that?!!

caleb's comment cracks me up!
that would've been a great prank for craig just to call and pretend that they were on their way!

they say if you want a clean house, plan a party!
