I am almost used to someone coming in to clean my house for me. Almost. She’s been here three times now. I didn’t feel weird at all when Nikki was doing it but I do have to admit that I still feel somewhat odd about having a “stranger” come in and do it.
I really like the gal who does it so it’s not that but just having someone come in and do all the things I used to be able to do for myself is kind of sad but kind of nice at the same time. I never would have imagined having someone come to my house and clean though. It never EVER entered my head even 5 years ago. I might have thought it’d be nice to have someone come in a few times a year to do all those nooks and cranny’s that get lost but every two weeks is not something I ever would have imagined doing.
I’m wondering if everyone does what I do. I know we touched on it lightly on here a few weeks ago and I think it was SKL who said she picked up the clutter first. I do that same thing. I also pick up all the rugs and either wash them or hang them on the clothes-line and let them air out and I also really shake them. I move all the kitchen chairs off the floor and into the living room. I move the hampers and everything that’s on the floor. I even sweep. I also clear my counter-tops.
I figure that I don’t want someone else to do what I can but I also feel that I don’t want to pay someone else to move a pile of clutter from one spot to the next and I’ll have to deal with it anyway so in a way having someone else come clean my kitchen, laundry room and bathroom every two weeks helps me keep my house a lot cleaner everyday just because I know I’m going to have her coming so I’m a lot more organized about a lot more things now.
Do you have someone who comes in and helps you clean? Have you ever dreamed about it? If you did have someone come in, what would you do in order to prepare for her?
