Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes free writing. I want this to go up on Saturdays, so I’m generally writing this on Friday. Sometimes super early Saturday. Or Sunday, if that’s easier for you.
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
I have a confession to make. About two months ago, I purchased a Groupon for three housecleaning sessions. We’ve used two of the three sessions and I’m almost hooked on having someone come to my house regularly.
I think many moms feel like that they just have to do it all. When did it become taboo to ask for help? I find myself working out of the home, working a little from the home, being a mom, being a wife, being a runner, trying to maintain a level of craftiness, while still planning Pinterest-worthy parties.
I am not the world’s best homemaker. I’m just not. So this little bit of help a few hours each month? It’s been awesome.
We have one more session around the time my husband is scheduled to have Lasik and the week before I leave town for a week (work trip.) I know it’s going to be needed – and not a moment too soon.
Sometimes I feel guilty for the lady cleaning my house, as if I should be helping her (but then I just feel like I’m in the way.)
It’s just such a good feeling to have that help. I need to feel less shame. Considering everything we have going on in the next few months (heck, just this WEEKEND), I’m glad to have the 3 hours to do things other than clean my house.
Do you have any household confessions to make?
