Ladies, we should get a discussion going on WHY we like our work. If someone had told me even just 10 years ago that I would end up cleaning houses and liking it I was have laughed. NO WAY. I didnt give a whit about cleaning until I was recovering from a major illness. I couldnt clean my house, and I began seeing it in a different way. I used cleaning my own home as therapy. And I came to enjoy it! I know thats odd but it is the truth.
What I like about cleaning is: its both mental and physical. I am 68 and need physical work to stay fit. I enjoy the mental aspect, always figuring out how to best clean a home. Ie, where do I start and where do I end. My vacuums have headlights and boy do they help me do a good job! Cant imagine NOT using one of those vacuums. My lights show me just how dusty any home really is, and what sorts of odd things are on floors. That way I dont accidentally vacuum up a large nail or something that could damage it. SEEING so much more clearly speeds up my work too. I know much more about what needs to be done. I also enjoy the majority of my customers. If I pick up a stinker, and it cannot be fixed, I move on. I enjoy interacting with my customers pets too. Especially cats but most dogs.
