Someone Else’s Toilet

      10 Comments on Someone Else’s Toilet I have to admit that I’m truly a girly-girl and not cut out for hard labor. I was a little grossed out today. Grossed out by that fact that I had to clean someone else’s toilets (and other things that are not my own)!

My husband has gone into business with a friend doing handy-man work for a property management company. He got a rush job that has to be completed by tomorrow.
The house is beautiful and BIG. Well, big when I’m one of the ones that have to clean it. It was only a 3000 sq.ft. house.
I am tired to the max!
I came home to a junkie house, dishes filled sink, the remnants of a blender experiment gone wrong and the neighbor’s son (that my daughter was babysitting) with his diaper hanging down past his knees.Then I had to make sure that everyone was fed.
I just sat down to gather my thoughts and decided on this post. This is the not-so-typical day in the life of me. I pray that I don’t have any or many more like it.
I spoke too soon! I get to do it all over again tomorrow. Different house, same routine.

There is a positive side…I get to be a blessing to my husband and I get time with him that I wouldn’t otherwise.
I really don’t mind helping him and I do it with a cheerful attitude. No use in nagging and complaining, right?

  • wouldn’t it be nice if while you were cleaning the other house, it would clean your house too? that would be so helpful! had to take the two youngest sons into a portapotty at the park yesterday….totally and completely grossed me out. Begged them to wait till we got home. They, on the other hand, thought the portapotty was SO cool! ug!
    hang in there today! and have fun with your hubby!

  • I know what you mean. Once upon a time I cleaned houses, and to be honest, the toilet of one particular house is the reason I no longer do that. I am blessed by the LORD that I did not contract some disease, honestly!

    Hubby and I used to get to work together when he was in his personal construction business. In some ways I miss those days, the time with him. God knows what is best, enjoy the time, as you are, as our seasons can be short and other God designed journeys can change our direction.


  • I can somewhat relate. In college I cleaned offices in the evenings, including the toilets.

    Way to look at the bright side of things though… spending time with and helping out/blessing your hubby.

  • Just stopping by to say that I hope your day of cleaning today went well.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  • There is nothing more frustrating than to do what you think you are suppose to be doing only to turn around and see so much more that needs to be done.

    Remember to spend time with God to keep your peace and joy intact and remember that you can’t expect others to do more just because you are doing more. God will give you all that you need to go all that He gives you!

  • May you be abundantly blessed for every bowl that sparkles because of your handy work!!!

  • It’s great that you can be a blessing to your husband in this way. I think I would have a hard time with this one! What a woman you are!

  • Hi Kela! How’s your day been? Any house cleaning today? Just wanted to stop by and say hey!

    Hope you’re having a great day!

  • Kela,
    Thanks for featuring my blog this week! I feel honored!

    Hope you have a great day!

  • Oh gosh… this reminds me of why I no longer clean my boys’ bathroom. I make them do it now. I wish we could flush the whole bathroom clean in one step. That would be awesome!
