You Know It’s Time to Fire Your Housekeeper When…

  • housekeeper The toilets/tubs/sinks/countertops are begging for a wipe down.
  • There’s dust with doodle lines covering the furniture.
  • The neutral carpet looks more like a multi-color berber.
  • The laundry has taken a permanent residence in almost every room.
  • There’s a long running To Do List that’s been untouched.

For over a week now, our housekeeper has been on hiatus.  No effort. No show.

It’s time to cut our ties and give her the boot. 

It’s Time to Fire Our Housekeeper.

Oh wait a minute…

That would be ME.


Never the mind.

Carry on! Carry on!

We will continue to do the all-consuming potty training (more like “stinkie training”) with the little dudes while you resume your previous activities. =)  

I honestly have a handful of things to announce/update/share with you all, but my fridge is dying to have something in it to keep cold.  Off to the grocery for now!  Come back soon for some exciting things ahead!

    Oh, I can SOOOOO relate…. and I'm not even (thinking of) potty training!!! As long as nobody goes upstairs in my house you're usually ok. I am very thankful, however, that I don't have to share a bathroom with my 10 & 7 year old boys!!!

    There are many days I complain about our housekeeper too and I don't have any kids! But I know if I fire myself it won't get cleaned at all!

    since you're so good at firing housekeepers, can you call mine and fire her too? thanks!

    OK, just saw your Tweet, and literally two hours ago I had my husband do the dirty work…of firing the cleaner! She was so sweet, and she was always like, "Tell me if I'm not doing something the way you like it!" I am not THAT picky, but then I'd show her stuff she'd missed—you know, like not cleaning the entire mud room and she still wouldn't to it the next time. I have enough going on in my life, i just don't feel like babysitting the cleaner.
