Surrender Dorothy

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!

  1. Nope, not decadent. A necessity which helps you to feel more comfortable when at home! I have been thinking the same thing...Just need the magic money tree after paying all the vet bills!

  4. When you find seeds for the magic money tree please let us know Michele! I wonder what the additional fee would be if we asked them to clean cars too. Hmmm.

  5. My moving resolution was a weekly housekeeper... I'm no Martha, but like having a spotless house, as does the husband. Choosing between hobbies, and cleaning I'd always choose hobbies, so I've decided to break down, and boost the economy! heehee

    For the prices I've been quoted, it's WELL worth the peace of mind to keep a beautiful house, and low-stress life!
