OK...I'm 56 years old
I HAVE had a cleaning woman in my past a time here or there when I
had a csection or 3
a great BIG party
a broken knee
but as I was cleaning 822 today I was thinking about if I was weird to be liking it?
I admit....I am a maid snob!
that being out of the closet... here are my top 5 reasons I like to clean my own house
1. I actually enjoy being in and around the rooms we have worked so hard to create
2. It's great exercise
3. No one will ever clean it the way I clean it...no one!
4. It's not that dirty...a little dust...a few spider webs...a bit of wine on the floor
5. I'm cheap...or maybe I'm expensive...but it saves me money I can use on other things...like more things to dust around
I find it very rewarding and one thing I especially love?
I love to have a dinner party with friends and NEVER is a dish done by one our guests
I'm stingy like that
I want the luxury of lingering over last night's dishes
hot sudsy water
hand washing the crystal
looking out the kitchen window down Barkley Street
and counting myself so lucky to have friends and family to share life with
btw...this is not me...although I do have curlers in my hair and red lipstick on
