“Selling a Home is So Much Fun,” said No One Ever

Posted on June 2, 2017 in Blogs By Jill, Cleaning Company, Moving Out

My parents are selling their home. It’s not exactly my childhood home. In fact, it’s more than that. I moved a lot as a child. From Ohio to Poughkeepsie, Miami to Buffalo, and a longer stay in NJ. That’s what we did with a Dad in sales. I didn’t mind,

Wash, Dry, Fold and Repeat (and Repeat, and Repeat…)

How Can I Clean When I Can’t Remember Where I Put the Broom?

Posted on April 7, 2017 in Blogs By Jill

I have to admit, I never realized there was such a thing as perimenopause until I started going through it. Menopause is bad enough, but we all know that it’s coming…eventually. We’re prepared for the night sweats and mood swings. We’ve been forewarned. But, there’s a benefit, too. We finally get

Posted on March 23, 2017 in Blogs By Jill

I’ve been spending a lot of time on the floor lately. It’s the only place I can truly stretch all of my aching muscles. One of the many joys of getting older. As I was laying there today, I started looking around. Big mistake! From the upright perspective, my house

Posted on March 3, 2017 in Blogs By Jill, Cleaning Company

  Many of us struggle with the decision to hire a cleaning person. It seems so extravagant to some. Others, like my mom, worry if anyone can actually clean up to our standards. It might be a matter of trust, awkwardness, or money. Whatever it is, there’s a lot to

Posted on February 15, 2017 in Blogs By Jill

I remember asking my kids a few years ago to go clean their bathrooms. After years of having a cleaning service do it for them, it was probably the first time they had to do it on their own. It didn’t take long for me to realize they had no
