I have to leave while she cleans 'cause I want her to come back! And, one of the best things about her...she does windows!
Syndi does windows, too-- but collaboratively. We work on them together. Okay, so now the house is Syndi-ready, and she just pulled up.
Honestly, if she didn't come every other week, I'd be living in a pile of paper and/or fabric projects. I'm seriously counting my blessings, here. There's folks who, due to Sandy, have no house to clean, or fighting cancer or such. I hired Syndi in the early 90's, when I was still teaching and dealing with my mom and her dementia. Mom's long since passed, and I've retired, but I still need Syndi. She's been such a blessing.
I just left her two Thanksgiving cards, unsigned, so she can use them as she sees fit. Small compensation.
Oh, and of course, her fee.
