Housekeepers! Yes, we have house cleaners come to the house every two weeks. Let me just say that for me it's money well spent. OK, we don't have kids, but we both work full time and we're kinda sloppy. It's a pretty inexpensive service, especially for the area, and I'm not about to do a deep cleaning on an over 100-year-old nine-room house all the time. I could barely keep my three room apartment clean when I had it!
Today, the housekeepers came for the first time in 8 weeks, primarily to clean up the mess left by the contractors. We've done a bunch ourselves, but it's so nice to have it deep cleaned-even the wires to the electronics are clean. It's so nice!
They moved all the furniture in the living room.
So, while we're waiting for the guys to finish up all the little leftover projects, we're going to sit on our nice clean couch, in our nice clean house, and decide if we want to keep it this way.
