I hate cleaning. Hate it! The only cleaning I don’t mind doing is laundry, and I actually love to do laundry. But scrubbing toilets and tubs and whatnot? Yuck.
Years ago, when I lived in what I affectionately called the ‘drafty palace’ I had no problem cleaning. My home was immaculate. Perhaps it was because it was a brand new house that I took lots of pride in. Perhaps it is because I was a stay-at-home wife with nothing better to do. Or perhaps it’s because I simply cared.
As is the case with most things I don’t like doing, I usually end up NOT cleaning. Or, rather, not really doing a good job. Even now that I am sitting at home all day, I just can’t get motivated to get into a cleaning frenzy.
The other day I had a come to Jesus moment and realized that the toilets were not going to clean themselves. I also realized that Foxy was not going to be pulling her weight and busting some suds, so I decided it was time to bring in a professional. It’s not money that I really want to spend, but I figure I will be eating out less now that I have a child. For the low low cost of two dinners out per month, I can have my house cleaned? Totally worth it!
Today I had a lady come and I am so so happy I did. It took her and her partner over three hours to clean my tiny condo. It would have taken me twice that. And I even took a nap whilst she was working. That’s worth every nickel and dime I have to spend!
Do you have your house regularly cleaned by professionals? Or do you do the cleaning yourself?
