Not too long after my last post, a non-Merry Maids cleaning service called, in response to my internet inquiry.
I decided to give them a try. They'll come on Tuesday and I'll evaluate if it is worth the cash.
I have to say that, after a weekend debate tournament in the Sunny State with a big blue Pacific Ocean, having someone else clean the place sounds pretty good. They can clean, I can do the laundry and at the end of it all, I'll be pretty darned far ahead.
I'll let you know how it goes.
