Waiting for Thursday

Earlier this year we had M*rry Maids come out and give us a bid on a weekly cleaning for our house. Well, although they were organized and thorough, the price made me choke.
Last week, I had had it! The house was driving me crazy and with all of the morning sickness I can barely even take care of myself, let alone the rest of the family. Normally my bedroom is my haven, but it is such a pit that I had been avoiding the whole house since there wasn't any clean place to relax.
I was speaking to a friend about M*rry Maids and she then told me that her beloved housekeeper was taking on new clients. No way! I called her and set up an interview on Thursday. And her price? I will get more than 4 times the visits with her than I would with the national company. I'm going to ask her if she wants to come more often than once a week until she gets the whole place whipped into shape.
I'll let you know how it goes. And, do you need a link for floor mops? I don't anymore! HA!

K---I think that's a great thing for you to do. Heck, I think it's a great thing for me to do---perhaps I'll follow suit. (Incidentally, we had a horrible experience with Merry Maids, involving a call to the BBB, so I'm glad you found something better.)

I love how you're taking care of yourself. I wish we'd all do more self-care without feeling like we're copping out. You, my dear, rock!!

I wish I could afford a maid. Living with two little girls is like shoveling in a continual snowstorm. Clean for one minute and then messy the next. I know, they are only young once!
