My Maid

For many years I have wanted to hire a maid. There are times when my life seems so overwhelming I have wished that I had a maid to pick up my slack. Here is the problem. Almost every Saturday, as I'm leaning over the toilet bowl scrubbing away, I find myself thinking of how wonderful it would be to have someone else doing my work right now. Then I think, well, I wouldn't want them to see the house like this. I know I'd be the idiot that hires a maid and then tries to clean up a little bit before she comes over. I wouldn't want her to think that I'm a slob. I do the same thing when we stay at a hotel. I pile up the used towels in the bathroom, I pull the covers up on the bed, I throw out the trash that has collected around the room. I wouldn't want them to think that we are pigs or anything. I know that this totally defeats the purpose of having a maid. So I've conceded to the fact that I can never ever have a maid. However, this is a depressing circle of conclusion to come to while I'm cleaning up pee under the toilet seat for the three hundred millionth time. Ugh! Maybe, I need a maid...

I love the photo! Would a robot maid still make you uneasy?

Robot maid? Yeah, the Jetsons had it right. Brilliant. I just want a maid to clean my shower and the crockpot. Those are my two least favorites.

I always felt, why hire a maid to pick up fisher price toys. so we just stepped over them. But I did have my favorite spanish sister who would come over and clean the whole house for me once in a while. She didn't have a car or I may have hired her all the time.

Malinda hired a maid. Once a week, what an adventure she had with that. For an example, she put the dirty dishes back in the cupard. Need less to say, the maid is history. She said she would rather do her own work and know it was done right. So, now the kids help. What is worse? Clean clothes in the hamper.
