Feeling Grateful

I woke up this morning to the sight of my husband hand-washing all these dishes after his 5am trek to the gym.

Oh and he made my coffee- just the way I like it - too. 

I'm sure he's horrified that I've now publicly outed his good deeds (I on the other hand would have tweeted had I achieved a similar level of productivity and selflessness before 7am...#wifeoftheyear), sorry love. I think B Daddy served me in this way this morning because he knows I am a bit overwhelmed by house maintenance and childcare these days.

So now for the exciting news... we're getting a house cleaner again! The former love of my life cleaning lady up and moved away right before I had Little Brother and our home has been in a steady state of decline for the past 20 weeks. You don't want to know the last time I dusted. I'm allergic to dust and I still can't manage to dust.

Feeding the family, washing dishes and clothing and keeping Dakota's shed hair from blowing down the hall like a Tucson tumbleweed have been the only things I've managed to achieve household-wise lately. Minor things like bathing children, changing sheets and scrubbing that nasty black ring inside the toilet have been sorely neglected.

Starting Monday we'll have sparkly toilets and dust-free baseboards again. I'm wondering how much extra she'd charge to clean my children as well?
