All Kinds of Clean

Well, I finally took the step.
It was a long time coming...
Should I
or
Shouldn't I?
Finally
the opportunity was there,
and I jumped.
I hired a cleaning person.

How nice is this?
We have been working longer and longer days.
Justification, right?
We got home from work after 7:00 last night to find,
ALL KINDS OF CLEAN!

Everywhere you look...
Clean!
In the corners,
Clean!
underneath things,
Clean!
the microwave even!
Clean
Clean
CLEAN!

I am loving this!
Well worth the $$$!
This was like buying time!

And this little girl had her first day of preschool yesterday.
I must say that while I talked to her before she went.
In the chaos of yesterday, I realized that I had not
not called her after school to see how she likes it.

Logan had his first day of preschool on Wednesday.
He didn't hide his shoes again,
and he actually liked it!

On another note,
my MIL was admitted to the hospital yesterday.
Complications all connected to dialysis.
Prayers gratefully accepted!

Long days in a short week!
All these shirts, close to 1000 had to be done this week also.

Tired?
YES!

The idea of a cleaning lady sounds wonderful! Unfortunately.... I think if I ever had the chance.... they would come through the door and turn right around. There just isn't enough time. I have to ask..... did you 'pick up' before she came? :)

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
*hugs*

Great decision on the cleaning lady. I agree it is worth the money. I'll say a prayer for you MIL. Have a nice weekend.

Can you see the ugly shade of green I'm turning?? In the past years when I was working, I had a cleaning lady that came every other week - and it was HEAVEN - if only to keep me in line as far as picking stuff up so it was "clean enough for her to clean" (you get my drift??) - When I lost my job, I couldn't justify it...and things just haven't been the same since....HELP!!! Sweet photo of Gracelyn....what a cutie patootie!!! Happy Weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
