Good news minute

Good news everyone, I have finally gotten professional help. I know you are all thinking of mental help, which I do definitely need, but this time it was professional cleaning help.

Once again life handed me a chance to eat my judgemental words, and boy were they tasty. I have somehow thought that it was a sign of inadequacy to have someone help clean your house. And I have looked down on others who have needed help. (quietly in my own head I assure you) Surely it is my job and not something I can pass of on others. Well I don't think I could be more wrong.

We all have different gifts for a reason. And so if my talent does not lie in cleaning my toilets, then so be it. Now that I am working more, I may as well share the wealth. Seriously I think this experience may be like getting a DVR. I don't know that I can ever go back.

On Friday, my new best friend came and cleaned my downstairs for 5 hours. She worked wonders with her mop and dusting rags. My house has never been cleaner. And I can not believe how happy this has made me. It is as if this huge burden has been lifted.

I am sure economic reasons come into play, but seriously, why have I waited this long. She cleaned out my fridge and it is a glorious thing to behold. She cleaned nooks and crannies I didn't even know existed. It is so amazing and bee-u-tiful.

So even though I did not share this good news minute in RS, I am happy to share it with all of you. All one of you who still read my blog. Your welcome.

Wish she lived close enough to come to my house. I swear I get one room clean, only to turn around to check on my children, to discover they have DESTROYED any clean nook in my house.
Glad to hear your good news minute, and miss you in the blogosphere.

this IS professional mental help - I know I'd feel a lot better mentally if someone could sweep and mop a few of my nooks and crannies. I'm devoting the first week of summer to cleaning - and blogging - it will be wonderful, just wait :)

I think I might just see if I can join the bandwagon as well. I looked around this evening and thought I might be able to share the wealth as well! One of my wonders of the day I listed a couple weeks ago is coming down to a clean kitchen. It doesn't get much better than that.

I'm so happy for you! A clean house is SUCH a nice thing. Makes the whole world seem better.

Mae Rae said...

That is so precious. A new best friend is something that I myself have always poopoo'd. I think that the time has come for me to think about it too. I thank you for sharing this because it only squelches some of my hesitations.

Homer and Queen said...

I hate good news minute in RS...I NEVER have one! I heart my cleaning lady and I have missed you!

Emily, you are so sweet and I miss you also.

T you are right, serious mental help. Look forward to the end of school when you will be joining blog society again.

Melanie, do it. do it. do it.

Barb, a clean house does make the whole world better.

MaeRae, try it you'll like it. I pinky promise.

Queen, I know, every week I sit there in silence, unless it is football season. But seriously how can it be so hard to come up with a good news minute. What is wrong with me.

April said...

Ahhhh...nothing like the look and smell of a clean house! So happy for you! And i did lol @ Queen's comment.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Thanks April and Shelle.

Wow! Way to go, girl. I have had those same feelings of thinking I should do it all on my own. Maybe you have liberated me.

Except I don't have a job anymore, which means I don't have and excuse. Or any extra cash.
