Have you checked out some of the local cleaning agencies, Babe? The reputable ones are bonded and insured.

Our 99 year old neighbor has a "visiting angel" three times per week, she cleans, cooks, runs errands and even bathes him! Visiting angels would be a good choice Babetoo! Senior Services should be able to put you in touch with them. Good luck!

That depends on how long it has been since the last time I did it.

This time took about 10 minutes. I did it two weeks ago. I don't usually bother unless we are having guests. We are used to having cat hair on our clothes.

I have been relaxing on the recliner most of the afternoon, felt really tired and this heat knocks me around a bit

Steve should be home from work any minute now, then we will make a start on dinner

I'm trying to get going. Can't seem to get things done this morning. I've done the washing and dishes and fed the kids but that's about it. It's 9 am, better go bath!
