Times Flys When Your Scrubbing Toilets!

Can someone tell me where the time went? This year seems to be going so fast that I can't catch up. I know I wished for Spring to show up as soon as Christmas was over, LOL! But didn't realize how fast it snuck up on me. You see I have started cleaning houses for work and that has been such a hard adjustment, then I injured myself too! Fell flat on my face chasing a customer's puppy. Oh that darling pup, who just had to dart out of the door as we were leaving. But we had em cornered, so we thought, I dove right at the puppy, trying to grasp his darling little neck with my fingers. But as my body hit the ground, my back and neck arched and wham! Can you say "CHIROPRACTOR"?!? Try not to laugh. But I have had 2 visits to the chiropractor and not sure if I will have to go back again. Oh yeah, that darling little pup got away!



Hard to believe that we started a cleaning business at our ages, but its true and I am 52 years old. My body is not taking to it to kindly like it did when I had a cleaning business in my 30's. So here I am trying to clean houses and I hurt so bad, yeah, I'm not in shape and I know what your thinking..."what the heck is a 50+ gal doing cleaning someone else's house, is she nuts?" Well if you could tell me how to get a job at my age, I'll stop doing it. Many applications later and some age discrimination on the side, I got nothing, yep, not one single interview, so I'm scrubbing toilets and dusting tables. Not happy about it, yeppers, not one bit. My partner, who is 46 years old, is feeling the pain too but she can clean a customer's house then go ahead and then clean her own house right after. Well I say, "you take this business over, I'm too tired and hurt beyond belief." She laughs but it is true. Things hurt that I didn't even know I had, LOL! So we will see how long I can hang in there.




So that is why I haven't had one chance to post since January, time flys when we are having fun, scrubbing toilets or falling down on the job. Ugh! My aching back!

Hugs (gently),

Cathy
