Day 88 - No Monday 'Grand' Day

With the 'Grands' visiting their dad for spring break,
I am left with an empty house today.

I spent my day....

Cleaning since I had to fire my housekeeper today.

It was the first time I ever fired anyone. Hubby usually takes care of the employee's at our business.

So why did she get fired?

She continuelly called the morning of with a reason why she wanted to bump me to the next week. In fact, when we hired her, for cleaning the whole house before our daughters wedding, she didn't show up the first day. Insisted to my daughter that there was mix up, which there wasn't (we were out of town and had it set up with our son to be here to let her in) and my hubby and I had to clean all the windows ourselves. When she took the job, I told her hubby had given me $300 for the cleaning. One day for windows, one day for the remodeled part of the house and the last day for the bathrooms and touch ups. Due to her inconsistant showing she only made $150. Yep, she only showed a day and a half. When we hired her, she was to work every friday and can only remember 1 month where she came each week. All the others were either every other or even 3 weeks between showing up. All with one excuse or the other.

I am very patient person, but when she didn't show up this last Friday without even a phone call, I had decided I had enough. I called her this morning, and of course she had a number of reasons why she didn't show or call, but I just told her that she didn't need to come anymore.

So now I am in the process of gathering my resumes and we'll be interviewing new candidates for the postion. Until then, I guess I have to do what I can.

Day 85 - TGIF

I didn't pick up my camera today.

In fact, I didn't do much of anything accept rest
and watched Parenthood on the computer.

I had heard so much about it.

You see, we don't get NBC.
I would explain,
but I don't even understand it,
just know we can't get it.
Just thankful to be able to watch
them on the computer.
Plus there are only a few 27 sec commercials.

If you haven't seen it, I recommend it.
