Lick My Floors!

I finally broke down and hired a cleaning lady. I'm not one to pay for something I can do myself, and I don't normally spend money on me but facts are facts. Obviously, I can't do it all myself, and the money is going toward a calmer, healthier, less stressful home for our entire family. Good and good.

So now that I'm done justifying...I LOVE IT!! The bathroom is shining, the floor could be eaten off of (not that Graedon was ever picky), and she even unearthed the book I started a month ago and couldn't find. We now have a standing date for every Thursday morning.

I'm liking this. The only problem is that I've spent the afternoon wandering around not sure what to do with myself. So, I made cheesecake. I am now destined to have a clean house and a thick waistline.

But the floors! Oh, my!

Good for you, Emilie! I've been thinking about doing the same thing when I go back to work in March. I figure it will help give me a bit more quality time with the kids.

A clean house is soooo relaxing! Enjoy!!! I'm glad that you are able to have someone come in! I used to have that too, but not so much anymore....and it's obvious that I too cannot keep up with it all....but for now we live with it...someday I will have a home keeper again!
