maid to love


monday through friday
she works hard for the money
earns every baht

house is all shiny
no finger have i lifted
a wonderful thing


so bh wrote a post with this same title – only not exactly. and his title got me thinking and feeling the need to declare, “i love my maid.” and now i’m going in search of a bumper sticker.

  1. praise to the maid! mine came today after a month and the house is organized at least for a day or two!

    i don’t know how i ever got by without her!! she is wonderful!

  2. Oh, I wish I had a maid! I’m jealous!!!! πŸ™‚

    i naively thought, “what’s so great about a maid?” now i know how wrong i was!!

  3. Pea green! My maid sucks. Of course, I don’t have a maid. I’m my own maid. Thus the suckage.

    when i filled the roll of maid in our house i should have been fired.

  4. I’m sure my family feels the same way about me. πŸ˜‰

    of course they do!! if they didn’t they wouldn’t keep leaving messes around for you πŸ™‚

  5. Oh, how I wish I had a maid!

    BTW, I was at a red light when I shot the video. I did say, “I gotta drive” when the light changed.:)

    glad to know it. i was worried for a moment that you had edited out the more risky shots. πŸ˜‰

  6. I am so jealous! Enjoy. Maybe someday. *sigh*

    i hope someday for you. this is something we never could have afforded in the states!

  7. great haiku! I-Want-A-Maid!!! You are so lucky! Actually to be honest, if someone would just come over and do the dishes and put the laundry away, I’d be a happy camper!

    that’s really the best part. especially with no dishwasher!!

  8. Now that is a beautiful thing. Sigh.

    I don’t know why you couldn’t do brownies on a stove top…you can make cornbread on the stove top.

    shut up -i’m channeling stacey london, can you hear her? – cornbread on the stove top.!

  9. Jealously I wish
    someone cleaned my house for me …
    more than twice a year ;–)

    Of course all the rest of the challenges you’re facing aren’t things I’d be ‘up’ for … especially at this time in my life. Thanks for stopping by Small Reflections earlier. My 2nd ‘ku is up at Sacred Ruminations … doing ‘double’ duty with Pensieve’s new challenge.
    Hugs and blessings,

    there is a part of me that wonders if i could manage without her, i mean i’ve managed forever without a maid before, but with all the new stuff – i’m not sure i could!

  10. I don’t want to shut up and you can’t make me. πŸ˜‰ Besides if I shut up, who would teach you how to make corn bread on a stove top?


    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon honey or sugar (use more, if desired)
    3/4 cup cornmeal
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons oil or butter, for the pan

    Measure buttermilk . Add egg and beat with a fork. Stir in oil and honey or sugar.

    In another bowl, mix cornmeal, salt and baking soda.

    Heat skillet, add 2 teaspoons butter or oil and spread to cover bottom and sides of skillet thoroughly.

    Add cornmeal mixture to milk mixture, stir briefly, and pour into hot skillet.

    Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. (If skillet has no lid, improvise with foil, or a plate)

    Check after 6 – 8 minutes. (It may take a few minutes more.)

    Cornbread has cooked long enough when firm around the edges and center is almost firm.

    Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for a few minutes. It will continue to cook.
    Serve warm.


    Cook it on VERY LOW HEAT!

    You can do them like my grandma did…she made them like pancakes and they are called Johnny Cakes.

    you are right, don’t shut up!! i will be making these this weekend.

  11. Argh! Not fair, I want one too!

    toni, fair is not everyone getting the same thing, it’s everyone getting what they need. at least, that’s what i tell my kids ;)!

  12. I can has maid? Sigh….very jealous.

    On the brownie note…in a pinch, maybe you could get an EZ Bake oven.

    i knew we shouldn’t have gotten rid of the queasy bake oven the boys had…

  13. Oh. So. Jealous…I’ve only had a maid once. I nearly cried from the experience…

    the one time i had a maid in the states i wish i had video taped it and i could have played it again and again…

  14. now I’m just jealous. last week the husband mentioned having someone come in just to clean our bathrooms and kitchen once a week or every other week. I wonder how much that would cost?

    if you can afford it, it’s well worth it!

  15. I miss our maid. Had to cut back on expenses but she’ll be the first person I call when the money tree grows back!

    i wish i knew where to money tree fertilizer so i could help you out!
