Day 12 - A love / hate relationship
|Dry mop/wet mop/broom/shoes|
You might be wondering what story that picture is telling? One of the things that our family loved, about living in Mexico, was that you don't have to take your shoes off. Most homes have ceramic tile floors and the weather is such that one's footwear is not dirty. It is actually rude to remove your footwear in someone's house. Our sons will tell you they are Mexican when they don't want to take off their shoes!
Now, while I love that (no tying and untying of shoes) I don't much care for the other part - washing the endless floors. See, while your shoes are not particularly dirty the floors do not remain clean. There is a seemingly endless amount of sweeping or moping that goes on. I can hardly fathom how much stuff is in my dust pan (which is the red thing with the handle!) between cleanings. Now, that said, the houses are not sealed either, so dust gets in fairly easily. I rethink the "I don't need a maid" thought regularly!
As you can see, we have lots of
room for guests to come and see
the ministry in Guadalajara -
consider yourself invited...
