So my cleaning lady called to ask if she could come in Monday rather than our agreed upon Thursday. I had cancelled last Thursday because the city chose that day to shut off the water to this building. I keep a supply of water in old 2-liter soda bottles and juice bottles, but thought that to be too awkward for her first time here, especially since there were floors to be mopped.
I have to say I think I will like this cleaning lady thing. Never in all of my 71 years have I had someone in to help with household chores. My kids all had chores to do when they were young - wash and dry the dishes, haul out the trash, clean their rooms. But to have someone deal with everything else is pure bliss.
The lady did a wonderful job. My nasty old kitchen floor shines and my bathroom sparkles. The dust is gone from my bookshelves.
I think I am being spoiled. And I like it. :)
