is it wrong i want to hire a cleaning women for my 700 square foot 1 bedroom condo?
it's not that i don't like to clean ( i don't) or that i'm lazy (i am) but pardon me but i like spending my days off doing things i like rather than having my head half in the shitter cleaning for the better part of my saturday. is that wrong? my modern mother always had a cleaning lady come every friday while my mom worked full time. my mom still cooked and did the laundry etc. but she didn't waste what little personal time she had on her knees scrubbing floors. not to mention she once confessed to getting a secret thrill from coming home to a clean lemony fresh house every friday knowing she didn't have to lift a finger.
and why should she? she raised 3 kids,worked full time and still came home and cooked and tidied every night. she made her own money and could afford it much like myself. mom says go for it. my dad....well he's from a different generation..the 'old school' as he says where you worked your ass off and knew the price of a dollar. well i do work my ass off and i do know the price of a dollar thanks to him....but i'm more from the 'if you can pay someone to do it and save you time..do it' whether it be painting the house,washing the car or mowing the lawn. unless of course you love those things and find them relaxing (weirdo) then all the power to ya.
i think a little part of dad's heart died when i told them of my plans to hire Molly Maid.
i feel a bit awful....but sorry Dad, unless you want to come over and wash 700s.f. of walnut hardwood flooring Molly's in and i'll be out........enjoying my life.
best $50 i'll ever spend.
