cleaner day 1

I'm impressed by how much cleaning I did for the cleaner... Before they got here I tidied within an inch of my life to prevent them thinking we're slobs. I didn't clean anything but wanted them to have a clear path to clean. For a first time, it wasn't bad. A few things they missed that will drive me crazy and I'll be sure to mention (leaving our garage light on for one and not sweeping under our bathroom scale or cleaning the scale, not cleaning the inside of the microwave) but the woman was nice and I'm happy to support her two woman business. Next clean, two weeks. The only thing I found odd was giving a key to my house to a total stranger...

My housekeeper came today too. I don't think they're ever perfect, but they're still better than me cleaning by a long shot. Hope you enjoy it in the long run!

Try to look at the big picture - she will never clean the way you would, but she makes a whole lot of time for you to deal with the few things that bug you. I always love walking in the door on cleaner day and just smelling the clean.

I couldn't get over giving a stranger a key, so I put a lock box on my door on cleaning days and gave them the code. That way I am always in possession of my key.
