It is nice to come home to a clean house and my stress level is way down as a result so i'm a much better mommy
The house isn't totally clean yet, we ran out of time so I still need to go through a couple of bins but most of it will be shreded and my mom has the shredder and I need to build the last cabinet but I need help with that then put that stuff in there. I would like to have her come back for 1-2 more hours to do the kitchen and may do that and offer to pay for her gas as incentive as its 90 miles around trip and I cant afford to pay drive time.
Don't count on 1 day, we worked our butts off for 10 hours stright with only a 30 min lunch break and we were both working as fast as possible and I didn't have dd here to slow us down. My place is also only 1 bedroom and about 550sq ft if I remember right so we were able to get it done pretty fast. I have to say though, my only regret is that I didn't find and hire her sooner! My next goal is to hire a housekeeper for 1 hr a week to help me keep up on things that I tend to drag on like putting away laundry, dusting or cleaning the tub. Question is, can I find one thats willing to work for $10hr AND speaks fluent english. I figure a lower stress level is worth $40 mo
I know the maids tend to charge at least $25 hour but there also doing deep cleaning and i'll be happy if they scrub the shower 1x month. I don't mind cleaning the tub but I HATE cleaning the shower portion of it.
