Every year my husband and I make an annual appointment to have our house inspected just to make sure there are no unwelcome guests living in our home. I got the phone call from the exterminator on Tuesday to tell me they wanted to set up a date. My husband told me to make it Friday, at 1:30 because he would be off that day and if there was something he could take care of it.
Today the doorbell rang at 1:15. I look out the window and there sits the company truck of our exterminator. I was sitting on the love seat in my pajamas, reading “Rhythms of Grace” posts, and had gotten so into them I forgot the time. I also forgot the “bug man” was coming! I looked at my husband with sheer panic on my face and he looked at me and grinned! I “whispered”, “Oh no!!! Look at me!!” He grinned wider!
I raced to the bedroom, slammed the door, locked it, and threw on my clothes. I then cleaned our room in what seemed like seconds. Jewelry I had left out was being thrown into drawers, along with my pajamas. If a professional baseball team had seen me I would be signing papers right now as a pitcher!!
I came out, and “the bug man” was in my wash room. Things began to fly in the kitchen! I looked at my husband’s office and decided not to worry about it, I mean everyone has to have ONE junk room in their house, right?
The dogs were going crazy and jumping all over me as though a serial killer had entered! I started thinking about it all. You really can make a cluttered house look immaculate in less than three minutes. Just make an appointment with a “bug man”. I can’t tell my husband this, he will have him over everyday! 🙂
