a busy Saturday ahead

Dad and I had originally hoped to use Saturday as a day to clean the house from top to bottom in preparation for the August 19 arrival of relatives from Texas, but a few friends want to visit Mom on that day, so we're switching to more of an "open house" format. Four or five people will be arriving around 2PM. I'm not sure how many of them know each other, but they're all people that Mom has known for many years.

In a sense, the visits won't disrupt our plans to clean: the upstairs, at least, will need to be presentable for our guests, so we'll have to clean it, anyway. We can also continue to clean after the guests depart. Luckily, there isn't too much that needs to be done; the upstairs is already fairly tidy. The only real concern is the floor which, being a hardwood floor, requires constant attention. As with any rugless floor, hardwood floors show every single speck of dirt. I remember being against the parents' choice to have a hardwood floor upstairs for precisely that reason, but there's no denying that the current floor looks pretty good.

When it's clean.
