I actually avoid having friends over due to the state of my house. I make dates to meet friends outside my home cause I don't want to clean it. I get anxious about it being clean enough if I do actually have people over.
I have some friends who clearly go to a lot of effort and some friends who make no cleaning efforts.
What do you do? Should I relax and say 'friends take me as I am, dirt, clutter and all'
