I really wish I had a maid

I despise cleaning! I wish I was one of those women who enjoyed it, actually got some sort of pleasure and sense of accomplishment out of it, but I'm not. My daughter is having friends over this weekend to celebrate her birthday and I've been on a mad cleaning spree since yesterday, but don't seem to be getting much done.

My house isn't a pig sty, but it is lived in. It's not one of those homes you'd see featured in magazines, but rather a home that when you walk inside you can tell immediately that a family lives in it. There are shoes by the front door (no matter how many times kids have been told to put them in their room), clutter on the kitchen table, backpacks and sports equipment tossed on the couch, and dirty dishes in the sink. Those things I have no problem with. Those chores are easily doable and really don't take a lot of time to finish up. My least favorite chore, however, is dusting. I will avoid that at all costs, if possible. I think because we have so many little nooks and crannies that it just is too time consuming. We don't have a lot of knick knacks, but there are several pictures and, of course, the whole entertainment system to deal with. Not fun.

I think for Mother's Day I'm going to put an "idea" out there and see if i can get some help around the house as a much needed and wanted gift. Or better yet, one of those maid people that I hear all this talk about:)
