Hi all and hope you are enjoying the last day of September. Since we have been talking about
traveling and/or vacations a bit how do you feel about
staying with friends and/or relatives? Are you comfortable doing that? Would you prefer your 'own space' in a motel instead? And if you are going to be a guest in someone else's home, what's the one thing a house guest should always do??
I am OK staying with one cousin but other than that I would prefer my own space...preferably my own trailer but have done the motel thing for a quick stop place to sleep on clean sheets while traveling to a destination. But if I do stay I think there are a couple of things a house guess should do. (OK, I'm already breaking the rules by listing more than one thing...lol)
First off, give them plenty of notice and ask IF it's OK if you come. We had relatives who would announce when THEY were showing up. Hmmmfff Also, I'm a firm believer in helping out in the kitchen, especially with dishes and/or cooking. Make sure you make your bed and keep your room very tidy and leave a simple hostess gift for the ones who are so kind as to
open their home to you.
OK, it's your turn. How are you about
staying with friends or relatives and what should a house guest always do?
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
