Doing nice things for nice people = MITZVAH!

Every feel like her?

I sure do... I personally have a love hate relationship with housework. I am a complete clean FREAK and love my house to look like a staged home (oh shush, I know those of you with kids are just rolling your eyes and laughing at me right now and saying just wait till you have kids, bye bye staged home, but we shall see!)! I don't always have the time or desire to get down on my knees and scrub the toilet or shower, especially after a long day of work when I still need to work out. So as long as I'm a working woman, with a commute and a need to look HOT, my hubby has agreed to let me have a housekeeper come once a month. Not totally sure why he gets a say in this, when I'm the one paying for it and do majority of the cleaning, but I'm not one to pick a fight. Especially since once a month seems reasonable enough to me!

At any rate, a few months ago our friend Brooke referred the sweetest house keeper ever. She's my very own Mary Poppins. She's so thorough and does a job that even I'm satisfied with. I don't even have to straighten the towels and re-dust stuff once she's been there (yes, I'm that anal). There are totally more than one type of clean-there is mine and then there are most people's idea of clean!

It was Miny's day to clean and she was asking for referrals and I thought man, I'd love to help her, but how? I asked if she had business cards that I could give to friends and acquaintances in the neighborhood and she said no. The light came on, I emailed my husbands graphic artist and came up with the logo above to use on some rather darling business cards if you ask me. Prior to getting these she was writing her name and number on sticky notes which I'm sure people would lose or throw away.

Can't wait to see her next month and see how things are going!

Moral of the story- it's nice to do nice things for nice people and if you ever need a printer, screen printer, embroiderer or anything to advertise your own business USE my husband.


The end!
