Victory! It is mine!

Ok, that's it. The apartment has reached "as clean as it's going to get." That isn't to say that there isn't still cleaning that could be done (even discounting the computer room, which was declared to not be part of this project), but that I have reached a point where I feel it is clean and presentable and where I don't have to worry about it anymore. We'll see what the maids do with it when they show up.

That's right, the maids are coming, and I'm still home. Yesterday's trip to the office reminded me of 1) how little work I get done there, and 2) how much I dislike being there. And, since I actually have work to do, we're staying home. I am, however, hiding out on the balcony. (Which would be much more neat if it weren't really hot out here (105° with heat index, though only 96 in the shade!).

Ah well, such is life.

I wanna go inside!

It is really hot out here, and I survived the first couple of hours ok, but for the last 20 minutes or so, I've been feeling kind of faint, but the maids are still here, and I don't want to go inside until they're done. I'm weirded out by them being there, even though I invite them into our home twice a month. Eh. I'll deal. But right now, I just want to go inside. Wah.

Ahhh, much better.

The maids left shortly after that last post, and I rushed inside. The maids did a fairly good job this time around, which is good, since they really really annoyed us last time. After collapsing at my desk for a while, I decided that I needed further relaxation (and more fans), and went and sprawled out on the bed and alternately read and dozed until a couple of minutes ago. I feel much better now, and have about an hour to kill before I head out to Nyarla's to wash a blanket and get my nails painted. (How girly!)
