Seems like the #1 think H and I get into fights over is cleaning. We both work long hours and really don't want to spend all weekend keeping up the house...but we also both want to live in a clean space.
I was talking with a girlfriend the other day about it and she mentioned they have someone that comes to clean their house every other week. I've always felt like cleaning ladies were for rich people...but now i'm seriously considering it. I've gotten some quotes and it would be about $50/time which would be reasonable in our budget. Only problem is, H doesn't like the idea of someone we don't know having full access to our house without us there. The place i'm considering is licensed and insured, plus we have homeowner's insurance to cover damage and theft. I guess i'm just not that worried about it.
Do you have a cleaning person? If so, how often do they come?
Would having a cleaning person come into your home bother you?
Would it be totally weird if H insisted that he be home while said cleaning person was there?
I'd love to hear some thoughts on this topic.
