So, for several reasons (one of which I'm lucky enough to say was not financial) I let our cleaning woman go. Although I truly do enjoy cleaning house, I don't like having to do it on top of a 40 hour-a-week job, and at this point in my life I am fortunate enough to be able to pay someone else to do it. I really wasn't looking forward to doing the cleaning until (if) I find someone else to hire. But, maybe it isn't going to be so bad. I've got Pumpkin to help me.
