I Finally Did It.

Well, after a few months of going round and round with myself, I've finally caved and hired a cleaning service for our house. I know, right? Who am I!? Paying someone else my hard earned money to do something I'm fully capable of doing just isn't my style. Maybe my priorities have changed. Maybe I've changed. Either way, here's what it boiled down to...

I could just buckle down and Swiffer my own house. So what am I, lazy? Well, yes...that's part of it. But the pros of having someone else do my vacumming far outweigh the cons, and believe me, I've made the list.

And really, when you boil it all down, I'm creating a job for someone else in the world (merit badge, thankyouverymuch). In addition, I will no longer have the "oh my gosh my house is so filthy" cloud of shame hanging over my head every time we have guests over. Plus, it will be easier for us to keep up with the day-to-day quickie cleaning type stuff, like a tornado toy pickup session before the 'rents come over. The biggest of all, though, is that the precious weekend time Joe and I (yes, he's that awesome) normally spend cleaning can be spent taking long walks in the park with Alex. Or going to the Zoo. Or walking around downtown Royal Oak. Or planting flowers. And that, my friends, is priceless.

There is no shame in your game!!!! I too think about having someone clean my bathrooms (and maybe kitchen) once a month and I am a stay-at-home-mommy!!! More power to you! Who ever said you HAD to be Super Woman/Mommy???
