I'm the one who took a temp job housecleaning, while I wait for a big job to come through. I have a new respect for anyone who does this for an actual living. I thought it would be fun and easy, bc I LOVE cleaning. My God. Think about when you clean your own home. Even if you don't have time during the week and have to do the whole shebang on Saturday, you can do it at your leisure. I have to do it all in 3-4 hrs. I do get paid if I have to stay longer, but sometimes I can't because I have another appt to get to, so I have to go back the following day to finish. I can do a 3500sf house in 4 hrs, but I have a 1600sf that takes 4+ hrs because of their crazy requests. I have to take an Epsom salt bath as soon as I get home, then fall right asleep (could be 4pm!) wake up in the middle of the night and go back to sleep at 4-5am until I have to get up for work. It's killing me. I have to find something else, like yesterday.
