I’ve spoken about this before. I may have even written about it. If I look around me, there is very little I need or want. That being said, I often want for something much more intangible: time. We made the step to find a little of that. . . by hiring a house keeper.
I’m slightly embarrassed over this whole prospect, but I am also incredibly excited. I mean, there are just two of us. Who can’t keep up with their own house and only two people. It’s not a matter of “can’t”, it’s a matter of time. And this is the little gift I’m giving myself: two nights a month when I am not responsible for cat hair, spills, dust or bathrooms. Tomorrow I’ll get to see just how good that feels.
