The cleaning lady is coming tomorrow

She usually comes every other Monday but I didn't hear from her until last night. She wanted to know if she could come either this afternoon or tomorrow around noon. I didn't have any cash on hand and didn't feel like going out so I told her to come tomorrow. I will just leave the door unlocked for her andt hen get the cash on my way back here after work. She spends at least 3 hours here so I will be here long before she is finished. I am fine with leaving the door unlocked. I live on the 3rd floor and no one is coming up here to try to steal anything. I also don't have anything particularly worth stealing. It is always nice to get back from work to a nice clean living space.

Well you know I love you and I am willing to hear it if/when you are ready to tell it. I found someone on Angi (used to be Angi's List) and eventually we just worked it out between us so it was cheaper for me without the fees going to the company and she got more of the $$ for her work. $100 for 3 hours (sometimes up to 4) is a price I'm okay with. Sometimes she folds my clothes and towels. (long story) She always changes out and cleans the litter box which is not something I ever expected her to do. She takes out the garbage and the recycles. Sometimes she takes out some of the mountain of empty cardboard boxes from online orders. Some weeks she washes the windows. She kind of alternates where her "extra" time is focused. I always appreciate whatever she does as that means I don't have to do it. She also is happy to take some extra food in the fridge or freezer off of my hands.

I would be concerned about leaving a door open since a crook will see it as an invitation to help himself to some items that do not belong to them. I do agree with you that a clean home will make anyone happy.

I'm in a 2 bedroom apartment and I keep the door to one of them closed because it is basically just a storage space filled with boxes and a bookshelf. I could clean this place myself but it just isn't something that I like to do. I will cook from scratch all day long and I will tutor for hours after I have already worked my day but I just cannot be bothered to clean. It has never been something that have enjoyed or been good at. I made an extra $120 this week alone in tutoring. That covers the cleaning lady.

How nice that must be!! I'm thinking of hiring a friend to help me out , but that will be a disaster. She's picky about what she does. No baseboards etc. It seems A maid is an angel from heaven. Especially when youre tired as a doornail.
