Keeping My Fingers Crossed
That triggered the "eyes" like a deer in the headlights. It isn't a question of whether or not I can keep this house. I can't! I can keep the apartment in Houston clean but not this Mexican house. I need help in San Miguel! There are two terraces and a patio that needs to be swept three or four times a week because they are part of the living space. The house is open and there is always dust. It means sweeping and mopping every week and in some rooms several times a week. I "could do it" but I'm going to use age as an excuse to not do it all by myself.
I have found someone who started yesterday. We know some other members of her family who work for friends. They are all wonderful people so I'm hoping that Juana is going to work out although she does not have a lot of experience in taking care of gringo houses. She needs the work, seems eager to learn and willing to do it my way. So I'll keep my fingers crossed.
