We finally did it! We hired someone to clean our little hovel! I'm totally excited and totally weirded out at the same time!
One of the waitresses at the restaurant has been begging to clean for us for a while. Always one to support other small businesses...I was all over it! I know I have been talking about it for a while, and with me getting more shoots...it seemed to be the right time to do this.
I bought the previously mentioned telescoping duster at her request. I've also been collecting all my cleaning supplies into one area...only to find out that I have hardly any cleaning products...what I have been using to clean is a mystery!
I have been so excited! That was until she came over to take a look at our place. She made me feel like it was a real mess...which I hope means that she just has really high standards and my house will be immaculate! She also was talking about cleaning the windows...I've only done that once since I've lived there! At least she'll be doing more than I usually do, what with the window cleaning and dusting above eye level!
I have to admit I feel weird about it and a little nervous. She came over and I took off. I really couldn't sit there while someone else cleaned my house. It just felt a little too luxurious and way too weird. My mom raised us by working full time and having a cleaning business. My sister and I would help all the time(child labor laws apparently didn't apply). So it feels weird to have someone cleaning my house. I actually feel insecure about it! I don't want anyone to see that my house isn't as in good of shape as I like to think it is! I could care less if she found my vibrator, I just don't want someone looking under my stove or behind the toilet...where the real dirty secrets are!
I'm sure I'll get over this as soon as I see how clean the apartment is...and knowing it's clean without my having to put in any hard work! Actually now that I've gotten that off of my chest...I totally want to run home and see how it looks. Although when I left two hours ago, she said she'd probably still be there cleaning...she's not telling me I'm a slob right? She just wants to make sure that it's done right the first time? Yeah that's it!
