Too. Busy. To. Post.

Ahh! I'm so busy this week. Boxing. Cleaning. Scrubbing. Vacuuming. Mopping. Did I mention cleaning? Getting the kids ready for the first day of school. Move out of a house by Friday? Work. Keep up with a very active baby. Cleaning.

I've been feeling a little crazy about cleaning our house before the new owners move in. I don't know why, but I don't want them to think we were complete and total slobs. We are. But I don't want someone coming in and seeing the handprints on the wall or the dirty floors or crumbs under the stove or wine spilled in the fridge and think, "these people are disgusting". I don't know these people, nor will I probably ever know them, but I just couldn't stand them thinking that. Ugh!

  • May I recommend a time-saving "total house cleaning". You can usually get a good deal if it's the first time you've used the service.

    How exciting! I can't wait to see pictures of the new digs.

  • Well guys, I'm still cleaning. Lass, we thought about having a cleaning service come in and do everything for us, however, the new owners decided they wanted us to spend $150 on having a professional plumber come in and unclog the drain because we forgot to pour Draino down there before the inspection. Now they get my cleaning services.

    However, I'm pleased to say our house looks damn good!

    Uh, Queen, maybe I'll send the cleaning service to your house. That would probably work out better anyway.

    Lou Lou, I don't think my house is going to sparkle. :( oh well.

  • You would make a GREAT military wife! We have to clean, clean, clean too...and even pressure wash the outside of the house before we can go!
