We finally did it: We hired someone to clean the house.
This was a move my husband had been suggesting for years, mostly as an alternative to having to pitch in more himself. But I wouldn’t consider it.
I’ve always had this idea that people who hire house cleaners are not like us. They buy furniture new. They own the kind of rugs that must be insured. To them, “winter” is not a season, it’s a verb meaning something you do somewhere much farther south.
