I Gave In - Her Name Is Claudia

I have succumbed to the worst. My husband, mother and sister-in-law all think it's the greatest idea since sliced bread, but somehow it makes me feel chapped in all the wrong places.

I now have a housekeeper.

Claudia is going to come twice a week while I am pregnant and maybe once a week when I spit out the kid. I feel like I've really compromised my principles. Is that weird? I mean, I should really be able to take care of my own house. I know I can, but it is just such a huge effort hauling the vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs and I'm having trouble reaching the backs of counters with this belly. The shower hasn't been cleaned in weeks. Am I lazy? Am I indulgent (feels that way).

How can I learn to just sit back and enjoy a clean house for 75 bucks every two weeks?

Maybe I will change my mind when I see/smell my sparkly house tonight.

$75 for 4 visits seems cheap, but what do I know.

We just let the house be messy. :)

Oh my god - if it was 75 for 4 visits I'd be dancing in the streets with her. No, it's 75 per visit. Still good though, I think?

If it's not too much trouble, maybe you can send her to my place when she's done. I'll totally go halvsies with you on the airfare.

Don't feel bad- I'm not preggers and I'm off work right now, so you'd think my house would be sparkling and pristine.
Yeah- not so much.
