Let's have a little fun!

In my "day" job (read "paying") I am family support person for families who have a family member with a developmental disability.  So I do a lot of web surfing around information and resources that would benefit families.  Well, today I ran across a blog at the http://care.com/ website.  It was hysterical - yet hits the right note for me.  I thought we could try what Sheila did on her blog - thanks, Sheila!  :)  http://blog.care.com/sheila/2009/07/housekeeper.html

This is an excerpt from Sheila's blog:  "Recently, I came across a book that takes the chore battle to another level—I’d Trade My Husband for a Housekeeper. The book is a marriage guide to life after children, but the tongue-in-cheek title caught my attention and gave me an idea …


We want to know what would you trade for a housekeeper? Would you give up your favorite pair of jeans? Would you swap a beloved photo album for some outside help? Would you actually trade your hubby (maybe that’s too extreme!)?

Let us know what you’d trade for a housekeeper and why!"


So - share!  I wouldn't trade my husband - he does more housework than I do anyway!!  But I would give up my daily Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee for one!!

  1. I'm thinking hard what I would give up...I thought it would be easy, but now, I'm finding it hard to give up something..I'll be back!

  2. Wow, you're in the same line of work I was in for many years! :) I miss it so, but am not quite back in working form due to my depression. I used to think I could never have a housekeeper, that it would make me feel too weird having someone else clean up after me. However, these days I might just be willing to trade one of my demon cats for one! Heh, not really, but she is driving me mad lately! :D Enjoy your day, Pam!

  3. Hi Kim - I do love my job! I'm so sorry to hear about your depression - it can be quite a battle to overcome it.
    Best of luck to you!
