Does anyone else clean their house before the cleaning lady arrives? I do. I can’t help myself. I don’t want Sara to know how sloppy we really are. I spend hours on Sunday tidying up, putting toys away, clearing my daughters art table, emptying the trash, and attempting to clear countertops and my desk so she can see the surfaces. I change the sheets on the beds, hang fresh towels and sweep the floors. I know this is ridiculous. My family isn’t filthy or anything, but I can’t stop myself.
But this week, I suffered from a cold turned to vertigo and I wasn’t able to do my usual cleaning. And guess what? I don’t think she even noticed! Lesson learned right? No, I know my compulsion will strike again in two weeks. Someone please help me!
