How to prepare for house guests
People who will stay at your house
1. Get your mind right
Sometimes, you don't really want these people around. But, they might be family, so you gotta do what you have to do. Hang in there. It will be over soon. Or, it's people you are excited to see, in which case, it's all good.
2. Clean the sheets
People like a nice set of sheets to sleep on.
3. Clean the bathrooms
Wipe off the toilets, counters, and sinks, to make it appear that you keep a somewhat clean house.
4. Get some refreshments
Have something other than water and coffee. Even if that's all you drink, like me.
5. Have some snacks
Similar to #4.
6. Be prepared to cook a big meal or take them out to eat
Whichever you prefer and can afford.
7. Make sure they have a space to park
Make it convenient. They are your guests, after all.
8. Let them watch whatever they want on your TV
We don't have cable, so they have limited choices.
9. Have the wifi password ready
So they don't have to use cellular.
10. Give them some privacy
Make them feel comfortable and be sure they have some alone time, if they want.
11. "Make Yourself at Home"
Everyone says this. It's nice if you actually mean it.
