Survived Cleaning Day

Friday, September 16, 2011

And by "survived", I mean I sat in my office and worked and fed the dogs three days worth of treats while the cleaning team went to work on our house.

But, the cleaning team did a great job. They were very friendly, very thorough, and I think this will be a very good thing. It took them three hours (gulp), but that I imagine now that they will be coming every two weeks, it won't take them that long next time. I kept the dogs crated (or outside) while they were here, but I'm not sure I will have to do that every time, until of course they are wash the floors and then the dogs will need to be up for a while.

Among normal cleaning tasks, they vacuumed under the couch cushions, they dusted the ceiling fan in our 2-story family room, and they moved the shoe basket by the front door that was housing a whole civilization of dust bunnies behind it (clearly that was not on my list of normal cleaning tasks). I think Mr. A will be very happy :) And for what it's worth, the toilets are sparkling!

In other news, I have caught a cold :( I am not too happy about having a runny nose in the same general time frame as possible labor and delivery, but I'm trying to rest up in a serious way so that I am not sick for very long.

And for those of you who're wondering about belly pics, they are in their own link to the side (-->)... I just can't bring myself to post them in the normal post area...

Ooooh - I'm jealous! Our cleaning lady no-showed for her first job, then nonchalantly called a week later to ask if she could come that day. I was so mad I said no. Now my toilets are still dirty. *sigh*

Glad it went well and I hope you feel better soon!

Sorry about the cold! But someone told me it can be a sign that labor is coming soon... something about it being not a real cold but a hormonal change that affects the mucous membranes or something??? And I'm so jealous of having a cleaning crew! It will make life so much easier for you when you get home with your little baby!
