We have a small dog named Cloe, she periodically stays with us or visits my parents for a few days; you may meet her or you may not. Interaction with GuestsI work full-time, from home! Thereby, you will see me in the house often, however I am periodically in/out of the house all day -
I do travel once a month for work and pleasure, so there will be occasions where you will be staying in our home, yet we will "not" be here. In this case, I do have a family member who will assist with all your needs, including your continental breakfast.
My daughter is in high-school and she arrives home in the early evening, where we are home during the week-nights ( no going out on a school-night) We are not very loud people, although we do like to listen to music; not music to give you a headache, nor very loud to have you want to complain.
