OK, this was crazy! I had just finished cutting Logan's hair and there was hair all over the bathroom. He was just getting in the bath tub. I was doing laundry and there were clothes all over the couch, I hadn't made the beds this morning since we had no showings scheduled for today, and there were Legos everywhere. Of course, this is when I get a call that someone wants to see the house in 5 minutes. You don't want to turn a showing away so I said ok. I then ran around like a crazy person for 5 minutes. I made the beds, opened the blinds, turned on lights because it is raining today and the house is a little dreary. I threw the clothes in the basket and put them in the basement. And they showed up.
I let them in, told them my son was in the bath, apologized for the Legos on the couch and ran upstairs to clean the bathroom Logan was in, which of course was the master bath which is a main selling point of a house. While they looked around downstairs, I got Logan dressed, used a towel to clean up all the hair in the tub and on the counter (Logan has really thick hair and it gets everywhere after a haircut), and threw a rug over the hair on the floor. No time to vacuum!
Overall, the house didn't look bad, but there were some things out that usually wouldn't be and we were there for the whole showing. They only stayed about 5 minutes, I'm not sure how long a showing usually lasts, I hope they didn't rush out on our account.
My adrenaline is rushing! I can't seem to calm down. Wow, I guess there is always an incident like this when showing a house. So far we've had at least 3 hours notice for a showing, usually we have 24 hours notice.
