Crock Pot Baked Beans
So lately I’ve been thinking that a house cleaner would be super nice to have. In fact I’ve been thinking this for a while and it’s just justifying the money it costs that is holding me back, but lately I can even justify that. It’s ridiculous. I can not keep up. So I finally decided that I was going to hire one.
I started calling local house cleaners. Do you know what I found out? Everyone else must have already hired them because I can not for the life of me find one. Everyone is booked. So after my third call and no luck, I gave up.
I thought maybe I wasn’t meant to have one?
Maybe it’s a sign that I should just suck it up and clean my own house and not hate it and detest it and get frustrated because my house does not miraculously clean itself….
I also thought inside maybe I should quit trying to find one because let’s face it. I felt guilty. I felt guilty for deciding that I couldn’t keep up. I couldn’t do it all. Between a kid, adding another kid to the mix soon, blogging, traveling, feeding everyone, doing laundry trying to keep everyone happy oh ya and working full time I just can’t keep up sometimes.
Why is it so hard to ask for help? To hire someone to come in and clean your house? Why does this make me feel so terribly guilty and inefficient? I look at others and they seem to have it all. Clean house, happy kids, they work, they craft, their lawns are well taken care of, and they clean their house. I must be a failure.
Crockpot Baked Beans
While in my quest for a housekeeper I found this out. There are a lot of people that have them as I started asking them around. Do you know what else? I did not think they were terrible people, slackers, inefficient or anything like I felt of myself. I thought that they were SMART!
Smart that they would hire this chore done so they could go outside and play a little more with their kids, that they could maybe pick up a book and enjoy some time to themselves. That they could go on a date night with their husband and not be stressed about getting home to clean their house.
So why do I feel guilty? I shouldn’t, but I do. I’m going to keep looking for that housekeeper and I’m going to try to less guilty about it because I do have a lot on my plate and if I can spoil myself with a house cleaner and enjoy some downtime then so be it. If you want to come clean my house let me know. I’ll pay you plus give you treats mmmmk??

I have another confession. When people post photos on social media I look in the background of their pictures and hope to see some clutter in their lives, on their counter or toys scattered on their floor.
When I find so-called things I feel relieved that others are like me! They don’t have it all either! And you know what I don’t judge them I just feel better about myself! So please would you post some clutter pictures on social media for me? Thanks!
