120ft2

Hello,

I am a 50 year old female, looking for a place to stay during the weeks I come to Mankato to work. I'm looking for an individual or couple with an extra bedroom or basement area, who may need or appreciate help in maintaining their home. If this is you, please contact me right away. I will be in the area until Novemer 21st, and would like to get settled before that date. All I need is a private room to stay in while I work in Mankato. I'd rather not stay in random hotels each time I'm here. I'd be here approximately 10-12 weeks total each year. In exchange, I can do painting, yard work, deep cleaning, decluttering, basement cleaning, garage cleaning, etc. If I cannot do it, I have contractor friends and skilled carpenters in my family who can help me get your job done. If your project involves new cabinetry, toilet replacement, sink replacement, etc. I would pay someone to help me get the job done right. I am a conscientious, hard-working married woman. I grew up on a farm, and know how to do physical labor. I would be most comfortable in a shared living arrangement with an older woman or couple who may need an extra hand with seasonal or one time projects. I'd want to have a defined arrangement, in writing, with both parties feeling it is a win win situation before we move forward. Trust is involved, and I think it best to sit down for coffee and talk about your needs and my needs to see if we can find a mutually beneficial arrangement. If you're going south for the winter, I can help keep tabs on your place. I need to be here from the last week in February until about March 10th. I generally work in Minnesota for one week a month - sometimes two months between visits. I just don't like staying in hotels because it is unsettling, and I'd rather have a "home base" here. I have 30 years' experience in elder care. I now work with computer programs. My children are grown, and some of them live in this area, which is an added incentive to spend time in Mankato. I am willing to give you cash for any added utility costs while I stay in your home. Any consideration would be appreciated. I have to believe there's someone out there who needs my services. I am a private person, but also very friendly. I can provide a copy of a clean background check, solid references, food safety certification, as well as work and education history. I would like you to have references because I need to know I am getting into a safe and good situation for myself, otherwise my husband would never agree to such a thing. He is very protective of me. Thank you for reading all the way to the end of my post. If you know someone who comes to mind, please share this information with others. I am earnestly looking for a solution.
