Christmas Gift

Something you WANT, Something you NEED, Something to WEAR, Something to READ

That is what we do for Christmas for our kiddos.

Dear Pam,

My wife and I started this tradition when our kids were young. We would get them stockings and family gifts but individually they would get 4 things:
Something you WANT
Something you NEED
Something to WEAR
Something to READ
And that’s about it. We personally take credit for the presents and give jolly ol’ Saint Nick the credit for the stockings. We work hard for what we earn and I don’t want our kids thinking Santa got them the cool presents. Uncle and Aunt Amazon did!

My wife has the kids create a wish list on Amazon. We then order the gifts and pay a little extra to wrap the presents before they get here. The reason is because of me, mostly. The last thing I want to do on Christmas Eve is stay up late to wrap presents. And be expected to wrap them well. I mean, c’mon, they are going to rip the wrapping paper off anyway. Why does it have to be pretty?

My family is happy and healthy and doing well. They miss me a little due to the busy schedule with folks needing cleaning before the holiday. But that is to be expected this time of year.

If you need a cleaning before Christmas I don’t have anymore room left in the calendar. However, if you schedule after Christmas sometime then I’ll extend a 10% off discount.

To explain better, between now and Christmas, if you need service and you schedule a cleaning after Christmas then I’ll give you 10% off. This offer is only good until Christmas. If you call me after Christmas to schedule then this promotion will have ended. It’s only valid if you call me before Christmas but schedule AFTER Christmas.

Can I say Christmas more times in a paragraph? Yowzer.

Ok, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May your heart be full of blessings, your waistline trim and your life full of joy!

“Your Nerds In The Cleaning Business”

Post-Holiday Cleaning Tips And How To Tackle Them | Carpet, Rug, Upholstery And Tile Cleaning Longwood FL

Holidays can make even the most rational person wish the man in the red suit had a magic potion with our name on it. With all the stress of cooking, preparation, and gifting, the last thing you want is to tackle is the mess left. If no one thought to give you a gift card for maid service, here are a few ways to handle post-holiday cleaning:

From spilled beverages to plates in the sink, it’s best to deal with messes as you go. While it might seem exhausting to clean as you go, it’s a lot less stressful than facing a mountain of dishes and no clean forks. Spills are less likely to become set-in stains if handled immediately.

Post-Holiday Cleaning

However, there are always at least a few rug or carpet stains that magically appear after the holidays! You obviously want to treat any stains as soon as possible, but sometimes you don’t always notice them right away.

Like the carpets, upholstery can take a beating during the holidays from all of the use and abuse. The earlier you can treat the stains the better, so don’t leave this one for too long!

You will save yourself a lot of energy if you break down the tasks into manageable chunks. Remove the stress of post-holiday cleaning by deciding what must be done now and what can wait. Cleaning your kitchen must be done now, while making your guest bed with freshly laundered sheets can probably wait.

And although, we do try to keep up with the basic bathroom cleaning {especially in the guest bathrooms!} over the holidays, they will definitely be in need of a good deep cleaning afterwards. Scrub the tile in your shower and bath, wipe down the mirrors and the sink, wash the towels, mop the floors, and clean the toilet.

But, seriously. Holiday gatherings are all about togetherness and enjoyment of the good times. So, the last tip is this: ask for the help of a professional! Treat yourself and your family to a clean house and a relaxed environment when they next get home. That leaves time for you to get your not-so-New-Years-resolutions set into motion.
