I don't mind pitching in and cleaning when company is coming over. I am willing to work with a list of tasks, and I will follow clear
directions. But when I've received no list upon request (I do better with just a list; they can't alter themselves to add on extra tasks with no end in sight!), and I get asked for "just one more favor" at least three times after I've done my part? Uh-uh. I cleaned the bathroom, made a batch of farmer's cheese and a batch of pumpkin chili for the party (both my idea, but still it's work), it isn't even my
company that's coming over, and insomnia kept me from turning in last night. When I say I'm done for the day, I mean it. And if I want to go to bed rather than socialize with someone else's company, I'm going to do it.
In short...cleaning under a deadline, and being nagged while doing so. THAT drives me up the wall!
