The number of rooms that I've been avoiding until I can get the mama-sans (cleaning ladies) here has been growing. Can't go to the bathroom upstairs, can't open the guest room closet, don't go to the other side of my bedroom (dust bunnies), best to avoid the tatami room downstairs. Don't look in the kitchen sink. How many pairs of shoes are in the genkan (entrance area)? 40? Forget it, I finally just cleaned up today after my own self. I know it's not a big deal, but mama-sans help me keep up the illusion that my life involves something other than flying to meetings and cleaning on the weekends.
