I finally just did it!

The lady I spoke to sent out 2 women and they got here at 1pm today. They charged by the hour which I had no issue with until one of the women estimated that it would take 5 hours to clean the house! I didn’t think it was 5 hours bad, but if that’s what it took then I was willing to pay up.After they got started tho, I found it really hard to just sit around watching so I got to cleaning too. I did a great deal of putting stuff away and throwing stuff away. I also reloaded the dishwasher 3 times and scrubbed the kitchen counter tops. So it was really 3 women, cleaning nonstop for 4 hours. That’s how bad the house was. This place is GLEAMING right now. I can totally see myself tackling things like organizing closets, doing laundry, finishing the kids room… if I didn’t have to worry about keeping this place clean.So yea, I think this will turn into a regular occurrence around here.
