You are so right, we are not superwoman. We have been sold a lie in this cuntory that we can have it all and be that superwoman. I have thought about getting a cleaning lady for awhile now and the same guilt trip keeps coming to my mind. I keep thinking my Mom and the older generation will perceive me as being a lazy women who can’t keep house. But the fact is, I just don’t want to spend the little bit of free time I do have cleaning a house. I just need to admit that I need help with the housework and it is okay to ask for help. As soon as it fits in my budget I am going to hire a cleaning service to at least come once a month. I’ll let you know how it goes.
