...Next to Godliness

I am so excited because I just hired a cleaning lady!

I've seen this gal coming and going from my neighbor's house for the last year or so. I finally got the nerve to go talk to her today, and she seems conscientious and trustworthy. She's going to begin cleaning my house every-other week starting next week, and her regular day will be Thursdays. How perfect is that? I'll get to start the weekends with a clean house. The idea of having more time on the weekends for other things is exhilarating!

    lol Joannah I had to laugh because whenever my mom comes over she say's 'cleanliness in next to Godliness you know'. And clean houses for the weekend are the PERFECT thing!!!!

    Are you really my friend Melissa? I was with Melissa (a colleague from work) last night and she was telling me that she just hired a cleaning lady to come every other Thursday! I'm beginning to wonder if you have an alter ego...
    Have fun with this!! A clean house is simply a lovely gift to yourself.

    That sounds wonderful - someday I hope that would work into our budget - but with 5 kids - I may just have to keep cleaning myself!!! Good for you!!

    Woohoo...good choice! I'm another one that has to keep it up myself. With my energy level I would implode if I didn't clean ;0)

    That is very peculiar because I just spoke with one today too. We have decided I spend way to much time being neurotic about the house so it is time to let someone else have that job! Oh and Thursday seems to be the chosen day.

    Funny...I was just thinking of that expression yesterday when running my Dyson...and thinking that other than that, I must not be very godly.

    I love my cleaning lady...you'll love it. I hate housework.

    I am so jealous! I try to keep one room clean at all times, so I can run to it and sit there while I am trying not to freak out over the messes in all the other rooms. ;)

    Enjoy! Soon you'll want her every week!

    AMEN! The cleaning lady just left and the house smells so nice and clean! Ours comes every other week and I would just die if we lost her! She is worth every penny. God bless the cleaning lady :-)

    I had a cleaning lady once, her name was Betty. I had to send her back though...it was my mother-in-law. She stayed for a month and did nothing but paint, clean, construct, wash, and God only knows what else she did when I wasn't here;)

    Good for you. Liberation is empowering.

    I am hoping to do the same too! I want to spend each minute I can playing with Abbey.
