Hello! I hope your weekend is going well.
It is ridiculously hot here. I mean stupid hot. I cannot even show you the forecast, because frankly, I don’t want to see it. You probably dream of So. Cal. weather if you live on the East Coast… but… we are over it.
It was so hot yesterday there was no way I could even walk with my kid for one hole on her tournament. It was super windy too which made for higher scores and unhappy golfers. Today less wind though, so I am excited to see how she plays.
After I dropped her off yesterday I
thought fantasized about all the things I would do on my way home. I had a huge list of things to clean and get done.
Basically, I got home and stayed on the couch napping the whole day. I did put in a load of laundry but that was it. It was awful. The tub needs cleaning, the floors are so dirty, there is dust an inch thick and lets not even talk about the doors and baseboard grime and dirt.
I had an idea! What if I can get a little help?
Yep, Molly Maids to the recue. I mean, its not just for rich people right? Its also for people who have illness and cannot do it all themselves?
I called them to see how much for a crew to come and clean my itty bitty space. The quote is $120.00 for two women to come and spend two hours. I’m so happy and relieved. I cannot tell you how my stress level has dropped. Like right after I hung up!
I mean, I’m stressed about the $$$ but I will figure it out. I will! I need this. I can’t do everything by myself. Yes, I know I have a teen girl and that means free child labor! I can’t do it to her either, she golf’s every day, does her homework and yes, she does some chores, but this kind of cleaning is not fair to ask of her.
Of all the things I could do for myself, this is the one thing that would impact me the most. I hope I can afford it. Things are really tight, but I have to make this work. I am thinking just once a month for as long as I can.
It won’t be forever. I hope the medication does not make me feel like this forever. Just working is such an energy suck and that is priority.
I have to keep my space clean because the new med is immune suppressant and I cannot afford to get sick.
This is just the best idea on all levels.
The service can take care of all the basic deep cleanings and then I can take care of the fridge and other things like that. It really makes me feel like I can handle it with this help! It’s just too much to do for me alone.
Sometimes its a good idea to ask for help even if you have to pay for it.
I’ll figure it out. I really hope it does make a difference!
