Adulting is pretty nuts. I’m sure 18-year-old me would have probably thought by now, I would have a farm, a child and carpenter husband who built said farm. If you’re wondering, 18-year-old me had a pretty mind-blowing tarot reading which resulted in shockingly accurate information about my future. I’m serious, Miss Cleo (I don’t remember her name, it was probably Barb) knew very confidential information about my life that was and told me I was going to marry a man who would build me a farm and I would have a kid at 28. MAYBE she meant a baby goat (kid) but sadly that isn’t the case either.
What I’m try to get at here is if you’re reading this, you’re probably in your mid/late twenties maybe early thirties and saying “YUP, not where I thought I’d be right now.” But you’re also probably looking to your older or hometown friends who are and saying “damn, that looks hard” and it is. Getting older is hard regardless of what walk of life you’re in. This isn’t a shtick about our millennial woes but rather more of an ode to the things that we can all to do make like easier and creep into adulthood a little more.
For me personally, especially in the colder months, I’ve been at home more. I’m cooking, I’m taking baths, I’m on the couch, I’m hosting guests. I’m making a real mess.
So as an adult-ish person, I decided to occasionally hire a cleaning service to come clean my apartment. All three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living room, floors, shelves, all those annoying places you pretend don’t exist but dirt and dust know alllll too well. I googled and found what I believed to be the best place with the most reasonable price. Two Maids and a Mop was what I decided on. I knew the name, I knew they were a national reputable company and so I moved forward with the process.
Fun Fact: Two Maids is a small, women owned business that utilizes a Pay for Performance Plan where the maids are compensated based upon your rating each and every time that they clean your home. Love that!
