Reality Check: Do You Really Like Having Overnight Guests

I've always loved the idea of people coming to visit and staying at my home. The logistics of an out of state visit are so much simpler when you aren't driving back and forth from hotels and meeting up for conversation and events. I have no problem suggesting people stay in my spare bedroom or crash on the sofa, but the real question is: Do you?Although there aren't many who would refuse a guest a visit, there are some of us out there who aren't really in love with the idea of their home life being "wrecked" for a few days. Maybe your space is small or your time is short so having guests at your home can be awkward.

Do you truly love having company stay over? I always see it as a chance to clean my house a bit better than usual and get on top of things I've been meaning to do and haven't yet gotten around to. How about you? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
