Let's just say, I had no idea what I was getting into when we decided to move into a house that had room for guests.
The last 12 months have been spent changing bedding sometimes a couple of times a week and cleaning bathrooms in between guests, providing vacations for all those who wanted.
After a melt down last week I was prepared to walk away from Retro house and living in a shoe box. When a woman I know approached me at church on Sunday and handed me a business card of two young ladies who were started a cleaning business, I nearly fell out of my seat. There was my answer.
It took two well-trained, hardworking women 4 hours to scrub my house top to bottom today. The entire time, they worked up a sweat and kept telling me...."We don't know how you've done it". There is no way I can keep this entire house clean by myself... like a hotel, keep a part-time job, 3 callings, Booster Club Vice President, 3 children's schedules and lives, with a husband who is gone 75% of the month.
Do I feel guilty? No way. Is it going to kill my budget. Yep. Do I care? No. Because I was almost to a point where I was either saying no to visitors or moving out. I'm very serious.
My next issue will be food. Hotel food. It's like binge and purge. I rarely eat out and I cook very simple meals. When guests come I usually put on 3 lbs from eating out or cooking big meals. Then the days they are gone, I'm working like crazy to lose the weight I've gained. Anyone got solutions for this dilemma?
Until then...look at these unique hotels.
