What A Beautiful Morning

This is just one of those morning when you know that everything is going to be great. The air is fresh. The trees are filled with happy and singing birds. The sun is shining bright as it crests over the horizon.

The task I had to have ready today to mail is complete and I am ready to go to the post office and mail it. I am prepared for a week of totally positive things.

I hope the week facing you will deliver all that you want as well. It just doesn’t get any better than this.

Renegado’s Two For One Post

NoteThis is a two for one post not to be confused with a 2 for 1 offer by Renegados. You get to see two different meals I had in a single post and that is the bargain here.

It is a fact that no maid ever leaves and thinks you were a good employer. Paying above the going rate doesn’t mean anything. Remembering birthdays and Christmas won’t mean anything. Ignoring the hundreds of dollars of broken items that have occurred will not mean anything. When they leave they will say you were the worst person they ever worked for.

I feel that I was fortunate and had one of the better maids I could have found. She came on Tuesdays and Saturdays for three years. Then she asked if she could come on Mondays and Fridays. The change was made and after some time, I realized that Mondays and Fridays are the most common holidays. I found that she had changed her days because she knew I would pay for holidays and maybe her other clients didn’t. Continue reading While I Am Thinking About It
