Today's Digging Ourselves Out project is to go read Sundry's post about hiring a housecleaning service and also read the comments, and then spend the rest of the ten minutes thinking about doing the same thing. If it isn't something you can afford, just daydream. If you already have a housecleaning service, think about how awesome it is and how smart you are for having it.
Then, if you can, answer the question I left in Sundry's comments: If you have a housecleaning service, do you feel weird having someone else in your house? Because for me, that's one of the main problems. I'm not worried about someone stealing, I'm worried about someone, you know, being in my house. It makes me feel invaded just thinking about it. What I want to know is, is that something most people feel but you get used to it? or is it that if you feel it, you're probably not going to get over it and should just scrub your own kitchen floor?
Also, a comment I didn't leave but want answered: What does a cleaning service do if there is clutter coating every service? How can they dust the coffee table if they can't get to it?
