    Do you have a guest room in your house?
    Yes, but it's also our "crap we don't have space for" room, so it's kind of crowded.

    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house?
    Depends on the guest, but usually I want them out after 3 days or so. I like my privacy.

    What is the best part about having company over?
    Spending time with people we don't get to see very often.

    What is the worst part about having company over?
    Losing my personal space. As in, I can't lounge around in sheer clothes, leave messes overnight, make noise in the morning if they're still sleeping, make a move on DH as we're watching TV in the living room....

    Do you have a guest room in your house?  Yes'm.  I'm odd and think that we should always always always have a guest room in our home.  My parents always did so I guess that's where I get it from.

    Do you have a guest room in your house?  We actually have two.  One doubles as the computer room and the other is the "book room"  where FI has all of his books just laying around because we only have one bookcase. :)

    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house? We haven't actually had any house guests yet, but we will soon.  One of FI's groomsmen is from Texas, and he will be staying with us for a week after the wedding.

    What is the best part about having company over? Cooking breakfast, probably.  I love making breakfast.

    What is the worst part about having company over? I'm assuming it will mess up my normal schedule.

    We do, but it is our junk room right now.  We are in the process of fixing it up.
    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house?
    2 nights is the longest anyone has stayed so far and that hasn't been too bad.

    It's nice to have people visit and to have them in your home. 

    What is the worst part about having company over?
    I haven't had company stay for too long, so nothing really so far. :-)

    Do you have a guest room in your house? Ha. I don't even have a house! But, in my apartment, I don't have a guest room. I have a built-in porch (windows, fireplace, but not a central heating/cooling source) that has a little day bed/window seat but that's as close to guest room as I get. 

    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house? Three. One day to appreciate them, one day to have their presence upset your normal but still be happy that they're there, and then one day to bid them adieu without them wearing out their welcome.

    What is the best part about having company over? Having lots of people to cook for and enjoy conversation with during dinner.

    What is the worst part about having company over? That it upsets the "norm". I enjoy having company, don't get me wrong, but it's nice to go back to the usual after a visit.

    Do you have a guest room in your house?  I wish.  We're in a one bedroom apartment right now.  Ideally I want at LEAST four bedrooms: one for us, a guest room, an office, and a studio.  I'm hoping to be able to move into a two bedroom place once our lease is up.

    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house?  We haven't really had guests more than overnight, due to the lack of space.

    What is the best part about having company over?  Getting to cook for people, bringing some energy into the place.  Also, it forces us to tidy up.

    What is the worst part about having company over?  Not being able to walk around naked.  We only put on clothes if we have to.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    Do you have a guest room in your house? Yes, but it's basically a storage place for all my stuff that couldn't fit in normal places after we moved in together.

    How many days can you usually handle a guest staying at your house? We've never had anyone stay for more than a night because we live in a bitty apartment, but I'd imagine 2 or 3.

    What is the best part about having company over? Getting to do things out of the normal routine, making yummy food, drinking lots of wine

    What is the worst part about having company over? Having to do things out of the normal routine--I'd love it for a day or two, and then just want to go back to lounging around in my pjs.

    This is not required.  When we go to the beach, we stay with a family friend.  No one gets more than a "g'morning".  If someone is in a talkative mood, maybe a "how'd you sleep?"  No more talking until everyone has read the newspapers.

    Once we were there when another couple was staying there too.  The wife had to be entertained constantly and kept talking in the morning.  uggh, she didn't get the hint when our responses were "uh huh" to everything.
