My mother always told me that house guests are like fish, they are just fine for a few days...but give them a little while and they start to smell. ha!
Sev and I have a house guest. He has been with us since last Friday. Technically we have not shared a living space with him until Monday, since we were out of town over the weekend.
However, I am finding it hard to think that this house guest will ever be "smelly".
His name is Matt, he was a friend of ours in Hawaii. He just recently got stationed at Ft. Jackson. The Army put him up in a hotel room and his last night there was last Thursday. We offered to let him stay with us for awhile. Sev has just been beside himself with excitement, he has a guy to talk "guy" stuff with, whatever ;-)
The best part? He likes to cook! He cooked brunch on Sunday. Last night, Sev and I walked in from work and there was dinner on the table!!! Like, real dinner. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes (REAL mashed potatoes!) and corn! When I went to retrieve water from the fridge, I saw where he had already written in a meal schedule on our fridge calendar! It looks like baked chicken and veggies tonight! (I'm eating dinner with a friend, but hellloooo left overs!)
I think I like the smell of fish!!
Oh-he even cleans!
Yeah, I think we'll keep this fish around :-)
