The weather is not great this week (rainy), but in my gut I know that spring is finally here to stay in Boston. It’s been a long winter and I’ve got the itch to do some serious spring cleaning.
My husband and I were talking about this the other day – about how hard it can be sometimes to keep a really clean house with children. I feel like it’s been especially hard since I’ve been working so much lately and Michael’s in the middle of finals. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.
And here’s a dirty little secret: I actually hate cleaning. LOVE having a clean house, but don’t especially love the act of cleaning a toilet or doing the dishes (there’s no dishwasher in our super old house).
It’s definitely not in the budget right now, but I get fliers all the time for cleaning services. I’ve been surprised at how cheap some of them are – only about $15 per hour. I’m sure a lot of good could be done in just a few hours a week or every other week.
