So it is week three with our new domestic goddess and a goddess she is. The first week I made a list and had hubby stay late and discuss it with her…she did the list and a whole heap more. I was blown away. After that I decided to dispense with the list because this woman does not need to be micromanaged. She knows what she is doing and she has a plan. I think I almost love her. It is as if she can read my mind and extrapolate all the things I want done.
She even organised my kitchen drawers…like I would organise it, if I ever had the time or inclination to do it properly.
We have hundreds of books (I am not exaggerating, hubby and I have a mini library, and HB has his own). She unpacked the books and dusted under them and on them and put them back on IN ORDER!
I always dreamed about doing the books, but it is such a huge task, I never have.
She picks up our stuff around the house and categorises them, and finds one spot for it. She does the weird things, without me ever having asked. I have never asked anyone to dust the shelves or clean inside the fridge or scrub out grout lines….but she just did it.
Thinking about this goddess (who I don’t really see, she only sees hubby sometimes), I think she is great at this house work thing, so I actually think she would do brilliantly in a better paying job. I don’t think she will stay with us for very long, because her future holds better than cleaning my house. I will miss her, because she is on my wave length and I almost love her. I asked hubby to stay late today and to tell her that I almost love her.
The result of having her, is that I actually have weekends to do the things I want to do. HB and I go out for our little picnics and play dates and I sew and crochet. Hubby and I can just be with each other, without cleaning something.
This weekend I am going to organise my sewing things. The other thing: When I invite people over, I do not have to rush about picking up and dusting. I can just invite people over and relax. I am relaxed over the weekends, I am less snappy and resentful. I don’t have to clean under the couches and scrub out the bathroom.
This lovely woman has changed my life and I wonder if she knows that she has. Does she know that she should be running her own cleaning company or any company….she has organising skills, she is not just someone who cleans a house.
