Clean house

After years of equivocating about it, we finally decided to hire a house cleaning service. I thought I would like it, but had no idea how deeply delighted I would be by it! I am *never* going back to cleaning my own house. Not only do they do an excellent job at the things I used to do, but they do things it never occurred to me to do — like dust lampshades. Seriously, it never remotely entered my consciousness that lampshades ought to be dusted until they did so. Now it’s entirely obvious that they were in need of dusting, and I feel a bit silly for not thinking of it before.

And the lampshades are only the least embarrassing example of things-I-never-cleaned- because-it-never-occurred-to-me that I can think of!
