Purchasing Sanity

Getting someone else to do stuff you need to do is a wonderful thing. Even if you have to pay them to do it. As you know I've been working hard trying to get my house cleaned up in such a way that I can keep it clean so people who might want to buy it and make me move can come look at it. I've done a pretty good job, but I'm exhausted and want to cry. There is still much to do. One thing is to finish painting the hallway and repaint a wall in my daughter's room which kinda got painted purple without the landlords permission. I know how to paint. I have all the painting supplies. Do I have the will and the energy to do it? No. So I hired someone. Ha! Usually I hate to hire anyone to do something that I know how to do. Why should I pay someone if I can do it myself for free? This time though, my sanity is worth the money. Soooo worth it. He will be here in a couple hours. I'm absolutely giddy.

What I am doing today is laundry. None got done over the weekend and I was running out of undies. The kids might need clothes to wear to school too. My dear friend Beth grounded herself the other day because of her terrible housekeeping skills so in her honor I declare it to be Washing Machine Wednesday and order all of you to do a load of laundry, or two. I'll try to figure out other catchy names for the other days of the week too, like how about Mopping Monday? Except my floor really needs mopped, I don't think I can wait until next Monday. Oooh, Toilet Tuesdays! Ok, that's all I've got for now.
