I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but it's big...at least for me.
Recently, Hubby got a promotion at work and to celebrate he hired a house cleaner. (We also went out for Thai food). I was really touched my his gesture. He even set the whole thing up and found a lady through a friend of his.
We've been talking about it for a while. Or rather, I was bitching about how I detest cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen. And Hubby complains "he's too tired" and "doesn't have time" to do a thorough cleaning. So stuff gets cleaned enough so it's not disgusting, but not as clean as we'd really like. While we're clean people, we hate the actual doing of the cleaning.
What put Hubby over the edge was that friends of his also have cleaning service and it turns out not to be all that expensive, considering the time and sanity saving.
She came by for her first cleaning. She explained that she could be cleaning all day if we wanted her to (and she charges by the hour), but usually she focuses on areas of concern first and cleans the rest. And as time goes by, all areas will be cleaned thoroughly. Even after the first cleaning, we noticed a huge difference. She really does some detailed work (and we realized how things can get so dirty so easily).
It feels kinda strange though that we have a service like this. Next thing you'll know, I'll have a private chef (which would be AWESOME, but out of the question). But I think I'll just have to get used to it. No more scrubbing the tub, yay!
