Cleaning for the Cleaning Lady

Part of the reason I have no time to blog is because of other time-consuming responsibilities. For instance, when we first moved into this dream house last Dec. I thought I'd be able to keep it clean. But a few months into living here, it was apparent that working full-time and keeping a 3250 sq. foot house as clean as I like it (ok, so I hate clutter and dirt and dust!) was impossible.

So I enlisted the help of cleaning people. They come every other Friday. It is awesome to come home tired at the end of a long week and walk into a sparkling clean house! The only thing is...the night before. I just spent 3 hours cleaning for the cleaning people. And I'm beat. (But the house looks pretty awesome)!

On a completely different topic, I was so saddened to learn of the death of Irish folk singer
Tommy Makem today. I urge everyone who reads this to go to iTunes and download his "Gentle Annie." It is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
