My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

I probably mentioned this a bit ago. If not – my Grandma sold her house right after I moved out. She ended up holing up in a really great senior living community. She lives in a beautiful and spacious apartment with premade meals and has access to hospital resources in case she needs help. But, some bad habits from the house carried over.

The smaller space curbed her need to horde items, but her inability to keep her place neat has not gone away. She ever since my grandfather's death has seemed to have given up on cleaning. A friend comes in a and helps out, but it's unfair to expect a guest to do so all the time out of the goodness of their heart.

So, my mother looked into hiring a Maid service Reston VA. She was way up there and driving back and forth can be a bit taxing. Gas unlike love is not free. Luckily, ma has power of attorney and can order services under grandma’s name. Having explained to the service that grandma can be a bit bossy and not happy to have things moved was understood by the persons over phone, and they coordinated with the senior community's hire ups to usually have grandma out and active whenever the crew came by, avoiding most conflicts.

The irony about it all is how easy it was to get, and keep her place clean now. Doing this at the old house was nigh impossible cause she never went anywhere. I'd like to think having wonderful staff that have the power to arrange things and new friends she can see everyday helping her be distracted while the maid staff can get to work. XD
