My husband actually took me to see a condo this weekend in an effort to simplify our lives. The household chores take away so much from one another and the kids. We miss each other. Any one else feeling this way?
While the condo wasn't for us (just an impulsive, desperate dream), it got me thinking. If we love the idea of someone taking care of our house and would pay condo fees, why not pay "fees" right now and bring in some help?
So...we don't have any extra money. I never thought we could afford a cleaning service, but I am beginning to wonder if there is some way that we could. I'd like to try out a cleaning service for Mother's Day and see what it's like. I know so many families (many whom you wouldn't even expect) have cleaning teams.
I would love to focus more on family and mealtimes and other things than working in all of our free time on the house.
It's so hard.
Any thoughts on cleaning services? Is it worth it?
