…hey check out the premises before giving an outlandish quote. Pain pills and grandkids are cheaper. As much as I don’t want to spend my time cleaning, especially knowing I will pay for it the next day, I can’t afford the price they quoted.
Yep! Been there, done that…
After the family holiday, it will all be worth it! Deb goes crazy prepping for Thanksgiving (currently head count at 14 adults + one toddler) but she also has compromised over the years (plastic plates instead of the hand-washed china, instant potatoes instead of real ones prepped two days before, etc.) and now it’s all easy.
HA!!! But at least it sucks less. And when she goes to bed that night (with a couple Ibuprofen, thank you) she has a smile on her face.
At least until she tries to roll over… <sigh>
