Leslie and I haven’t seen our dining room table in weeks. It’s been covered with wrapping paper, pens, holiday cards, papers to be shredded, and a lone coffee cup. Our cleaning lady was set to come today but we had to postpone her for a few days.
We have had the same young lady cleaning our house for years. She’s good (I’ll admit, not great in some areas) and we trust her. We’ve gotten a little lazy (so what if there are shoes in the middle of the bedroom floor?) and she, in turn, I think has gotten a bit lazy herself. I think she might even vacuum around the shoes on the floor instead of moving them to another location on the floor.
Is there such a thing as a cleaning lady who will come before the cleaning lady? Asking for a friend.
But it currently works for us. Except when it’s just too messy to even have Mati see what our house looks like. So our plan from today until next Wednesday is finish wrapping every last Christmas present and put the wrapping paper and other items back where they belong. We’ll leave Mati a few empty counters and floors to thoroughly clean and I’m sure she’ll be so happy. Or not.
Because once we come home from work on Thursday, and after we enjoy the clean fresh scent of our house, we’ll be back to messing things up again. We leave on vacation in less than a month so it’s time to start pulling out the suitcases and getting things washed and ready to pack.
