Since I’ve been pregnant we’ve started having someone come in and clean the house every other week. It’s not that our house is so huge I can’t tackle this job on my own, but for several reasons we though it would be a good move.
It keeps me from doing some routine heavy lifting, keeps me from breathing chemical fumes, helps me stay on top of things since I only have to do the touch-up cleaning on the off weeks, etc.
It has been especially nice since this extra help coincides with our busy season at work. When Christopher and I are both stressed about work, we tend to do the base minimum at home. A helping hand is much appreciated.
I’m glad I finally took the advice of 3 smart women in my life that all said, “If you both work full time, you should have some help around the house.”
