UHM and I give up. We have finally succumbed to the knowledge that, between the two of us, we cannot keep up with the housekeeping chores generated by 2 humans, 5 dogs and a cat - not going into our busiest season at work. This morning we interviewed a professional housekeeping service and I think we are going to retain them to come in every 2 weeks. We debated the expense on the way to work this morning but finally realized that if we want to have any free days at all in the next few months, we need help.
I know it sounds like something decadent but, it's really just a survival tool. By the way, only 87 days until Christmas!
