A couple of months ago, I got a cleaner. I did this for a few different reasons:
(1) We are two working parents with two active children. I
wanted needed something on our plate to go.
(2) Life was feeling so mundane: Work. Make dinner. Sleep. Repeat. Spend weekend getting groceries and running errands. I wanted to free up some time for some “fun” somewhere along the way.
(3) Cleaning did not qualify as fun.
But, honestly, for the past few months I’ve just felt so guilty about paying somebody to do something I’m fully capable of doing.
I worry I’m wasting money. I worry I’m being lazy. I worry that I could do a better job anyways.
I’m thinking of cancelling the service just so I can stop feeling so damn guilty.
So, my question is: As a family, is there anything you outsource?
I’m thinking I’d feel less guilty about the money if I outsourced something I hate and am terrible at, like gardening…
