$ for a vacation or for a housekeeper, which would you choose?

I'm a teacher and have the luxury of staying home 1 month during the summer with children but it's yet to be a vacation. My children are tornadoes and frankly I'm pooped. So I'm debating, saving money for a fab 1-2 wk trip next year or using that money to pay for a housekeeper/ cook for the summer. Which would you choose?

I would give myself relief now.
It sounds like you need relief now.
I say if you can you should get the housekeeper cook.
I am understanding you mean you would get the housekeeper / cook now.
also just wanted to say...I appreciate you being a teacher. Thank you for that.

Me? Vacation hands down.

I see how that'd be nice though.

Vacation. A house isn't hard to keep clean if you get a routine and make the kids clean up after themselves. A housekeeper isn't goin to be in your home 24 hours a day

 A vacation! I honestly wouldn't want someone in my home cleaning it. I do that on my own- and have my kids help me:)

Definitely a vacation. I have my own organization and way of doing things. Other people just don't get it and then it'll bother me until it's done right.

Housekeeper. I am all about making life easier, and that includes outsourcing the cleaning. And cooking. (We had a housekeeper when I was growing up - my mom still has a maid come in twice a month - and it really is worth it.)

Vacation, housekeeping is not a problem. I would want to do something fun with my family.

Vacation! The housework will always be there but the chance to get away might not be.

Vacation. Kids would be cleaning up the mess they have made not me!
