I'll go so far as to say I enjoy mowing the lawn! I don't go in for gardening and I don' like raking leaves in the Fall. In fact I usually just run over them with the mower and mulch them into oblivion.

I mow the lawn twice a week in the Summer whether it needs it or not

Hey, I remember that. I also remember not being among those who gave you a hard time.

As the kids became more active, we cut back to just once a week cleaning. We have had some issues, but never anything to lose sleep over.

On a similar note, we have never done any of our own yard work, snow removal, or window washing (a separate service from the cleaners). Just not worth the time to do something we don't enjoy.
Argh, I posted this on the wrong thread, sorry.

Obviously nobody noticed. Far from the worst threadjack I've seen (or started).

No, you did not mess up. I believe the forum Web software got a string of posts starting with yours misplaced. They used to be on the thread about "Cleaning/Service Maids" here: Cleaning Service/Maids.

This happened to me before. A post of mine was initially in the right thread, but later got sent off elsewhere.

Thank you. I was worried I was slipping. And, even better news, apparently I was FIRST!
