Whether it's when showers are taken or who is washing (or not washing) the dishes in the tiny kitchen, coordination and open communication are key. No matter how much you love your guest or how happy you both are that they're there, emotional resources will grow slim. Intentionally talking things through can help everyone relax and removes the need to try and read into every little action. While this method of communication can, in some situations, border on over communication, it helps immensely in such a small space for everyone to be on the same page.
