“Girl, what’s wrong with you?” Did you hire a cleaning service? Yes, I sure did, and I am not ashamed. Growing up all I can remember my mom doing was cleaning our house, so naturally, I thought I was supposed to follow in her footsteps and do the same. Spending my Saturday mornings cleaning my house until I couldn’t clean anymore was not fun at all.
Let’s be honest, I HATE CLEANING! I have a toddler, and a husband and my house is not squeaky clean all the time. I used to get so mad at myself because my house was not up to the standards that I thought it should be, or “others” thought it should be. Who is judging my house? You really shouldn’t be if you are.
I do make sure to keep the kitchen and bathroom tidy and presentable in case of random company. I only deep clean about once a week, if that. I loathe cleaning toilets, mopping, and everything else. So I am not going to front, I hired a cleaning service to clean my house regularly.
I know most think its a luxury or that I am lazy by hiring a cleaning service but listen, Linda, I did, and I am not sorry. I am not sorry that I don’t want to spend my Saturday’s cleaning, I am not sorry that I want to sit with my feet up and relax and watch TV or read my favorite book if I want. I am not sorry at all! So don’t judge me ok. Thanks!
Seriously if you are thinking of hiring a cleaning service, here are some legit reasons for you.
- You hate cleaning. If you are like me then hey go for it.
- You like things really clean! Cleaning services are guaranteed to get your house spotless so yeah, I like when then clean.
- You don’t have the time. I am a working mom who travels a lot. I just simply don’t have the time most of the time, and I am ok with that.
- You want to spend more time with your family. Cleaning takes up a lot of time and energy, and if you rather spend time with your family instead of doing so, I am not judging.
