Just Been Busy

June 8th, 2014 at 04:05 pm

I've been busy, working 65+ hours a week. The overtime is nice but I am tired. DH had been handling most of the household duties, but now he is on an extended business trip. Today is my one day off this week, and my plan is to not even leave the house. Laundry, cleaning, and doing a bit of paperwork for DH's business are the plans for the day. Oh, and I need to line up someone to mow the lawn while DH is away. I like to have a "feed my soul" activity on days off when they are few and far between (long walk, trip to a park, paint my toenails, whatever), but today I may need to settle for having clean laundry and a semi-clean house. A soak in the tub sounds nice too ... but I don't want to have to deal with cleaning the tub afterwards! Smile

I am at the age and point in life where I am seriously starting to think about hiring a housekeeper to come in once a month. That could definitely be worked in to the budget without jeopardizing our other goals.

    Go for it on the housekeeper. I have recently read about how so many other countries have them for even modest incomes. The money spent blesses you and the family of the housekeeper.

    As busy as you are, I would say the housekeeper would be a great idea.

    I have someone in once every two weeks and it saved my marriage and my sanity. Worth every penny.

    I agree. A housekeeper can be a sanity saver.
