Busy as a Bee

Well, Monday's phone call sent me into a flurry of activity. I have been running all over town looking for new rugs, calling the maintenance department to see if they could come out ASAP to do some repairs we have been putting off, and picking up some flowers and plants for the front porch. I wish I had time to get the rugs cleaned. I did cover almost every square inch of carpet with a rug though. Speaking of cleaning, the housekeeping service I hired is here as I write this. Yeah, you read right. I hired someone to clean my apartment. I have never hired someone to clean before. I always do it myself. I 'm just too tired and overwhelmed to do it myself this time, and they were actually pretty inexpensive. It may become a habit! :)Probably not. I have threatened my husband with his life if he messes it up before Friday. (They let single women adopt from China, right?) Just kidding. I'm sure he will do his best to keep the place in tip top shape. He'd better!

Oh, hiring a cleaning service is a terrific idea. I may copy you. I'm so busy with work and my master's, but the house needs a good cleaning before the social worker comes by. You've got me thinking...

Hi Michelle,
Just wanted to stop by again and let you know the recipe for Jambasta was great! Looks like things are really happening on your adoption! How exciting!
Sending lots of good wishes your way,
Sue

You can breath! Honestly, SW's are much more focussed on your "homework" or homestudy Q&A's then they are with the cleanliness of your house. Sure, you want it to be presentable without super obvious baby death traps, but please don't knock yourself out. I promise that when you're through with the homestudy, you're going to think "what did I get so worked up about" Good luck!
