Ms. Jane

Oh god, you poor woman! I go into a similar frenzy before my mother comes. My frenzy became much more dealable once I got a maid to come in. Now I just pay her for 7 hours of cleaning instead of four.

I know if I cleaned the house myself that the one thing I missed dusting would be the first thing she'd notice.

After years of self-torture and arguments, I decided to just Do Whatever It Is She Wants To Do and not impose my will on anything. She only stays for five days a pop, so it's not that bad. Luckily my brother's there and he and I can make the Intense Eyes over her head. Good thing too, 'cause otherwise I'd go insane.

I tried getting someone to clean the house, but it was never good enough, or else the criticism shifted to you know, the ugly light fixtures or something. But once I had someone clean everything, and there was some scene out of a minor nightmare where my eagle-eyed mom drew her finger across something or looked inside the toaster oven and said casually but heavily, "You know, Badge, I could pay to have someone help you clean once in a while. You poor thing. Is your f1bromyalgia acting up? You must be soooo busy and exhausted. It must bother you sooo much to have everything be so dirty all the time."

arrrr!

but you are right. I will roll with it. It is immensely helpful to do a little mutual eye rolling with someone, anyone.

minnie
