A Sign??

This was in my mailbox yesterday! I've been thinking about trying to find someone to clean my house for quite sometime now, but I haven't actively pursued it. I am somewhat of a clean freak, though you wouldn't know it by looking at my house these days. Having a dirty/messy house creates an unbelievable amount of stress for me. I know that it's not important in the long run, but it seriously drives me bananas! So, I'm thinking that this was a sign that maybe I should really hand the cleaning over to someone else. It would be a small price to pay for removal of stress, and there's not even any therapy involved! It's really pitiful to hire someone to clean our house since it's really small. We're talking less than 1500 square feet folks! When we moved into it, we thought we'd be there less than 3 years, and now we're getting close to 4. It's small, but we love it. It has so many upgrades that many larger houses don't and we're totally spoiled by them. When we look at houses that are for sale, they just don't me my expectations because of what we're accustomed to now. I just need 1 more room in it and I'd be totally happy...we need a bonus room/playroom in a bad bad way to contain all of the toys that are quickly overtaking our home! Regardless of the size, the stress is still huge so we'll see what happens, but I may have 1 or 12 fewer dustbunnies in a few weeks!


  1. i keep asking for just ONE house cleaning for mother's day, valentine's day, christmas, etc. but i haven't gotten one yet. i'll be jealous if you do! it's a losing battle with two kids and a husband!

    I would love to have someone clean my house but the problem is I want it cleaned MY way!!!! Plus I would have to pick up all the junk so they could clean. Good luck!!!! I think its a wonderful idea. It will give you more time with the kids and husband......


  3. I stay at home and I can't get my house cleaned. I think it is just the kids age. I am also a neat freak and only other neat freaks can truly understand your stress SO I UNDERSTAND 100%....Get it cleaned I would if I was working....

  4. Messes stress me out too!!!! I would love to have my house cleaned (at least every other week). I, too, am like Carey, and I like things done a particular way. I really hope that you get to have your house cleaned. Mine is not as clean as I would like for it to be, but I deal with it until I am in tears and begin scrubbing, dusting, and vacuuming away!
