Some Women......

Splurge on.....
  • New Shoes
  • Coloring and Cutting their hair regularly
  • Manicures and Pedicures
  • Expensive Handbags
  • Regular stops at Starbucks
  • Massages
  • A new outfit at the mall
  • Expensive perfume
  • Jewelry
  • A gym membership
  • Hobbies such as scrapbooking, or sewing
  • The latest and greatest piece of technology

Nope not me! I tend to be more on the practical side. If I'm going to spoil myself....

I'm going to get someone to clean my house for me! That's heard me right! I would much rather pay for a maid than any of the above mentioned things.

Every week day, I leave the house at 8:00 am and return home from work at 5:00 pm. Then it's immediately onto cooking super, cleaning up after supper, getting kids in the bath, getting kids in the bed. By time I have a moment to's 9:30 pm and I'm whooped. This usually means that any laundry or cleaning that I have to do gets put on the back burner until the weekend. Well, the problem is that my weekends are just as busy.

So, ladies that is why I have bit the bullet and hired a house keeper. Granted she will only be coming once a month. But, boy oh boy, that once a month cleaning will for sure help this tired mama out! Tomorrow will be my official first day having a spic and span house....and I couldn't be more excited.

I would love to know what you do or spend your money on as a splurge?


  1. Yeah for you! I would so love to have someone come in and clean my house. Who knows? Maybe I will one day - when the market turn! Enjoy your spic and span house and your splurge!

  2. Sounds fabulous! A far better investment than the hippest new shoes, anyway. :)


  3. Oh how dreamy! You are so lucky Lacie!! Enjoy!

  4. I am paying someone to do spring clean up in our yard. Trimming bushes, pulling weeds, laying new mulch, etc. I love working outside, but as with you and housework...I just don't have the time. Besides they do a much nicer job than I would. Then I get to spend the summer admiring what wonderful work I did (by hiring them). I will spend my outdoor quality time mowing 8 acres! So tell me...what exactly will they do?

  5. You'll love it! Wish we still had ours but gave her up when the gas prices reached $4/gal. I'm tempted to ask her to come back! :)
