I am hiring a housekeeper.

I. CANNOT. WAIT.

She will start next week. I just need to wait for her to call back with a day/time that works with her schedule. I am going to have her come bimonthly. I am thrilled. I have been so busy with chauffering the kids, babysitting twice a week, training for my triathlons, and keeping up with the laundry and all cooking. I barely have time for basic picking up and everyday cleaning... the BIG cleaning jobs are just no getting done nearly enough. I finally convinced DH to let me hire someone to help. And he finally said yes! WOO HOO!

I am so, so excited.

Anyone else have a housekeeper?

Nice. I could really see how having someone just a couple of times a month for deep cleaning would help keep on top of everything. 

We don't have anyone clean for us, though. Just me. :)

I am a housekeeper, good for you! You will love coming home to a clean house and I have found that most of my clients start getting better and better at keeping things picked up and organized, it's just so much easier when you don't have to worry about the standard of cleanliness so much. And you can entertain more if you like!

We have someone come every couple months to do a good scrub and then I just maintain with wiping up and the light stuff. You will find its well worth it!

Awesome!

I just clean my own house, I'm too cheap to pay someone to do it. Plus DH is basically a built in cleaning lady and he deep cleans the house pretty often. He also cleans the cars. Bit of a wrench when he's gone (military) because then I have to do it... boo. Maybe I should insist on getting Merry Maids once a month when he's gone? That seems fair right? LOL.

 Im happy for you! I wish I could have someone come and give me a hand, but since I dont work I guess my husband believes I can handle the hosue, kids and school :/   besides he works so much I would feel bad asking to hire someone.

but Its good you have the chance to :)
