clean house

April 22nd, 2007 at 04:34 am

I really hate when web sites or applications I use change. I'm a stick in the mud and don't like to re-figure out how to use something. Smile

Recently my company upgraded to Office 2003 and the Outlook is all different and I don't like it. Just leave it alone, it worked fine the way it was.

Mom and I are walking outside again. Almost all the snow has finally melted from December, just a few patches left here and there. The wildflowers are starting to come up too.

I broke down and had had a cleaning service come in and clean my house on Friday. I got so far behind and it was such a mess I was defeated before I even started trying to clean. I love the results, the whole house is clean at once and they did a great job. The toilets look brand new. We have calcium in our water and the spots are very hard to get out but they did it.

I used Merry Maid, 2 people for 1 and 1/2 hours $141. It wouldn't be worth it for me to do every month, for one thing my house doesn't get that dirty with just me, but every 3 or 4 months would be nice.

I got another bonus from work for $250 in Gift cards. Still have most of the cards left from the one I got in December, but it was very nice.

As I expected the ordeal with my mortgage company is ongoing. They reported me one month late on my payment to the credit companies and now I'm having to deal with that. I called the mortgage company and they can't fix it unless I write them a letter explaining what happened. They caused the problem and now I have to jump thru hoops to get it fixed. GRRRR!!!

I haven't felt like getting on the computer much lately for fun stuff. Too much time spent on it for work. But I felt free this weekend without the expectation that I would have to spend a lot of time cleaning my house, so I caught up with a lot of blogs and also sent for a bunch of free samples from WalMart. I haven't been doing that much recently and I used to check them out about once a week.

I've been spending a lot of time doing jigsaw puzzles lately. It's very relaxing and cleans out my head from work.

I finished reading the library book Empire by Orson Scott Card. Adventure. This was very good and very realistic. It predicts a civil war very soon in America's future because the political rhetoric is so outrageous any more. Very good story line.

    When we get the whole family together with all generations, I try to have a new funny puzzle I've ordered for us all to work. We spend a lot of time visiting and laughing at the puzzle while we are together. We worked puzzles a lot as a family, living out in the country--especially in the winter. Very relaxing. Glad to see others still like to work them, too!

    Some of my favorite childhood memories are aroung doing puzzles.

    The power used to go out alot during spring thunder storms and we, me and my mom, would do puzzles by hurricane lamp light.

    I miss doing them, but with a 4 and 5 year old I just don't have time to do them right now.

    Good luck with the morgage company, be patient and play their game. It is worth it to get things straightend out.

    I was thinking of hiring someone to clean my house, but I would have to clean it first, well actually declutter it so they could get to what needs cleaning. I don't have the time or energy for that either.

    Congrats on getting your house clean so quickly. What you did makes so much sense! The gift of a clean house is so worth it - especially when you don't have the time.

    I outsource my cleaning and I love it. It would be the first thing that would go if I wasn't keeping to my savings plan!

    I agree with your first sentence. So sorry that the mess with the mortgage company continues - hope it gets resolved soon. I've missed reading your entries, but understand how busy it gets (for me too, and then I'm not blogging either.)

    Best wishes in life settling down for you! Enjoy the nice weather and walking outside!!
