I am Begging ... Pleading!

I am well aware that there is a major difference in needs and wants. But don't you think that if you REALLY need and want something than you should be able to have it? That's what I thought! I really, really, really want/need a maid, housekeeper ... heck, I will call her Princess if she wants as long as she will come clean my house. We actually are renting an apartment right now but it's not in an apartment complex - its a very old, antebellum home that has been made in to 4 separate apartments. It's a super cute place with hardwood floors, very high ceilings, a fireplace, etc. But have you found that in old houses, no matter how hard you try, they never seem to look (or feel) ultra clean? Well .... I have found that and the only solution I can think of is to bring in a professional! Agreed? It is not a very big place so it would only take her a couple of hours, probably 3 at the max. And I only would need her once every other week! I can keep the house tidy, I just really want someone who can help me keep it CLEAN. Wiping down baseboards and window sills, dusting blinds, and cleaning the inside of the refrigerator are all chores that I cannot bring myself to do. Is that lazy? Wait, don't answer that.

Pleeeeease let me have her ... let me just try her out ... just once ...... pleeeeeeease!

On another note, the Beau and I went over to some friends house last night for dinner. They are one of our new couple friends and we had such a good time. I emailed her this morning and told her that when we got in the car to leave we had no idea it was already 11 pm! They probably thought we were never going to leave! I didn't go to bed until after midnight because I had to watch Little Miss Shawn Johnson win that GOLD! No more Olympics for me though, it is affecting my sleep too much! You will learn that I require a MINIMUM of 8 hours per night :)

Tonight I am going to a Book Club. Have any of you ever attended a book club? I have never participated in one before but I am really looking forward to it. I love to read but, as I have mentioned before, I wouldn't say that I have the most mature taste in books. And I have this suspicious feeling that we won't be reading a book from the Shopaholic series. What if they ask what was the last book you read? I will have to say, "ummmm, actually it was called Skinny Bitches." That probably won't make the best impression. Maybe I should lie. Yep, I think that would be an appropriate time to lie! I'll update ya'll tomorrow....

I used to have the same issue with wanting a cleaning lady. No matter how hard I tried our townhouse never felt clean. My husband and I finally can to an agreement . . . . I get this wonderful lady name Amanda to come clean twice a month, and he gets to play golf, no questions asked twice a month. Should he deciede he wants to play more golf, Amanda get to come more often, haha. It works out wonderfully. :-)

We just hired someone, because I started grad school. She came for the first time yesterday, and it is the best decision we have ever made.

The remnants of mildew are gone; the kitchen sink is clean; my floors are swept.

I highly recommend it. Mr. Newlywed was more than willing to accomodate my request once he realized he'd have to pick up the slack!
