Hello everyone. I am writing to you from the floor of my closest, and for a particularly nice reason. Every bed, couch, and air mattress in my little house is full this week. We have a house full of guests, so I snuck in here with my laptop this morning to get a few things done before the house starts to get busy.
Everyone arrived last night and we carried our two dining tables outside, threw some tablecloths on, and had a great outdoor dinner and movie (I might have to share my tips on outdoor movie-watching some time). I love the bustle of lots of extra people filling the house, love setting up portacribs and running for extra bath towels.
This is our favorite new discovery for keeping glasses straight for a house full. We set out a grease marker and let everyone write/doodle their name right on their glass. Everyone gets one glass per day and I get to keep up on dishes.
Do you have any favorite house guest tips, rituals? Anything you like to have on hand? I am at the beginning of a summer of occasional visitors, and would love a few fresh ideas.
