Unexpected Visitors

Imagine the following situation:

You have just returned to your apartment. It's the holidays and you have been working a lot of overtime. Relatives have just called and they will arrive in 2 hours. The apartment is a mess. The dishes are stacked, the counters are dirty, the floors not clean. Your cat has dumped a lot of things onto the floor. The bathroom has hairs everywhere, the bathtub has a ring around it, and the mirrors have toothpaste splattered all over them. Clothes have been strewn all over the house and the apartment hasn't been vacuumed in weeks. You have nothing to offer your relatives to eat or drink.

What are you most worried about? Being embarassed, welcoming your guests, feeding your guests, etc.?

Generally, what would you do about that?
