I walked into a fabulously clean house after work. My cleaning lady (bless her heart!) came for the first time today. My bathroom and kitchen are sparkling. My hardwood floors are shining. My wood blinds and mini-blinds are dust free and so are the baseboards. It even smells clean!

I feel like a queen in my little castle.

I can hardly wait for her to come back again!

    Oh, that is a treat! I love the feeling of a clean home, everything in the world feels right when I have a clean home, try explaining that thought to 4 boys that live in my home!

    the bad part about having five Christmas trees is that you have to take them down...but I'm about 90% there!

    That is so great! Just wait until the baby comes. It will look nice and clean for a couple hours, and then the little devil will scatter toys everywhere.

    Ahh.. I remember those days. I used to have a cleaning lady when I worked outside the house.(now I work from home) I absolutely LOVED coming home to a clean smelling house. All those places I never got to like baseboards, tops of fridge, showers etc... all clean. Memories!

    ENJOY !!

    Love, love, love cleaning lady days. That's why I have mine come every day. :)

    It can become an addition. Over the holidays when she was gone for 3 weeks, I actually went through withdrawals.

    It was not pretty.

    Lucky you! Someday we'll have one regularly. We use a service for special occasions and I could just dance around the house.

    Oh I love that quote! Need that hanging in my own house... though I admit I love to clean and for some reason, it has a very calming effect on my mood... though if I could afford it, I would not pass up a cleaning service, you lucky dog... : o )

    There is nothing, I mean NOTHING! like a having a cleaning lady. Once you get one, you think, how did I ever live without one?! Mine went back to school and got a full time job, so now I'm cleaning ladyless! with this post you reminded me how much I miss her! *boo-who*

    Oh, this just depressed me. I cleaning lady quit after 8 years. I am heartbroken. My husband thinks we can get by without her. He is nuts!!
    Enjoy and cherish your lady.
    She is priceless!

    We 'indulge' in the services of a cleaning lady every two weeks. It's so wonderful to have everything neat and tidy and clean and shiney twice per month! I'm trying to figure out how to keep it that way longer but with an 18 year old and two 2 year old, it just doesn't happen!

    This week my cleaning lady left town.
    :(

    She has left town without a word. She cleaned my MIL's and SIL's house too. I am lost. I guess I know what I will be doing today.
