The social worker is coming to our home this Friday for the final meeting in the homestudy. The house is clean, but it could be cleaner.
Instead of cleaning I decided to go through the closets this week and sort things for donation. In addition to needing a good dusting and carpet cleaning, there is now a large pile of old clothes and miscellaneous items that need to be taken to a thrift shop.
I also noticed that two of the three plants on the patio have died. Instead of taking things to the thrift store, dusting the blinds, or borrowing my mothers carpet steamer - I run to four different nurseries looking for the right plants. I judge each one for what it will do to our image when the social worker comes up to the house. I finally walk away from Lowe’s with a pot of decorative grass and a pineapple plant.
There’s still Thursday to clean. If I could stop worrying that the kitchen towels look faded.
