Hiring a maid

Turned out to be a lot easier than I expected. In fact I didn't have to do anything. Shama works for one of our neighbors. Catching me sweeping our driveway, she kindly offered her services. Her english is excellent and she comes highly recommended.

Monday was her first day. She arrived earlier than I expected. I hadn't cleaned the kitchen yet! So she did it for me. I'm going to have trouble getting used to this. But the house is nice and clean and she isn't a mop breaker like I am.

She was very surprised that Boaz doesn't come home for lunch nor do I bring lunch to him. 'He eats at the office?!' I guess it's time to buy a tiffin, make a big batch of dal, veg munchow soup, and chapati dough? This seems like a lot of work.
