Inn Sitter for Mistletoe Bough Bed and Breakfast

I told you about Mistletoe Bough about a month ago. I didn't tell you about the wonderful opportunity Glenda and I were offered. While we were talking to the Inn Keeper, I told her my girlfriend and I are so in love with B&B's that we took a course and became certified Inn Sitters. The Inn Keeper immediately asked if we would consider sitting with Mistletoe Bough the week of 21st-27th! She and her husband are going on their first vacation since they purchased the Inn 3 years ago. We answered without hesitation "YES!" We didn't even care how much they offered to pay us! SO-o-o-o I will be gone next week living a fantasy dream. We will have 12 guest Saturday night and feed them breakfast Sunday morning. They had rented the house for 2 days for their daughter's wedding. On Tuesday, we will host a little tea party for 12 older ladies. They will meet in the ladies parlor. Then on Friday and Saturday, we will check in guest for the weekend. These guest will be attending the Auburn-Tennessee game. We will feed them breakfast both mornings. There is a maid that comes in daily to change the beds and clean rooms. Then mid week, another lady comes in a does "deep cleaning." We will book reservations, run the credit card machine and be available for any needs. We will stay in the inn keepers apartment downstairs and also take care of Amelia, their parakeet and Barney, the mouser that lives outside. Glenda (my friend) and I plan to do a whole lot of porch sitting, rocking and coffee drinking. We'll smoke cigars in the gents parlor (NOT) and have afternoon tea and scones in the ladies parlor. Come by and join us. You're always welcome at Mistletoe Bough! Click on the link and take a tour.
