The Ladies are Coming! The Ladies are Coming!
Here they come… they've come to save the day!!!! I love the ladies!!!! Every other Friday I the "ladies" come to clean our home. Every other Thursday I run around picking up and recruit the rest of the family to join in. On Friday night we celebrate by going out for dinner (we musn't mess up the ever so clean kitchen).
Working women NEED help… and hiring some cleaning help is a small task yet has BIG effects on your psyche and your marriage. A cleaning service is less costly than couples therapy! I know you; you've 'tested' your spouse… by leaving their dirty socks where they dropped- how many days did you last before YOU picked them up?! How edgy did it make you?
How do you tackle the big projects or little ones for that matter when you're focused on dirty sinks, scummy showers, and dusty furniture? My house is a complete dirt disaster about 2 days before the ladies arrive. But "oh well" I can let it go because I know my super hero ladies will arrive in 48 hours to save the day. Then I retreat to my office to get some work done.
I am surprised how many women feel guilty hiring someone to help. Whether it's a cleaning service or an assistant to support your business. A man would hire both and within the first few months of obtaining their home or their office-no doubt.
So busy women…. Get it together… hire some good help and keep doing what your doing… working hard, managing a family, home and business!
