This ought to be interesting
Our soon-to-be ex landlords just received our 30 day notice as they've been on vacation, or something like that. Bill got a phone call from one of them this morning saying that they've listed the house up for rent again & they've already had a couple of people interested in seeing the house. Now I have to keep the house "show ready" with a crazy toddler running around & feeling like I constantly have the flu.

I don't know how I'm going to do it & the kicker is we're renting from the "cleaning nazi's" who not only gave us a list of what to clean & when, but with what products & such. They are very anal. I have a feeling I'm not going to meet their standards or I'm going to kill myself trying to. I guess this is just another reason why I can't wait for the end of the month. And another reason I'm praying for a cleaning lady to magically appear at my door step.

Good luck.It is so hard to get things done while you are pregnant and have a toddler.It sounds like you have crazy landlords...If they don't like it I would tell them to have a cleaning lady come in and do it to their standards.Besides that don't they technically have to wait until you are out?

Two words: Merry Maids.

(or a private cleaning company/person)

it's so worth your money and your time.

also? add this to your reasons to OWN. we've been fortunate to have great landlord for the last 8 years. when we moved out he said "Ach, just vacuum and clean the counter and we'll call it a day."

OMG, that is HORRIBLE. Do you have any friends who can help out? And seriously think about paying for a cleaning person once or twice, it would be SO worth it for you right now!
