Dear Santa, I’d like a housekee……..therapy.


For about 10 years now I have been “hinting” that I would like my husband to get me housecleaning services for Christmas or my birthday. It hasn’t happened. Why? You might ask, is my hubby a mean and neglectful man totally oblivious of my needs? Uh, nope. That actually couldn’t be farther from the truth. So I asked him and he had the nerve to be honest. “Apparently” its because he knows it would stress me out more because I would insist on cleaning before the cleaners came! Ha! How little well he knows me. Damn it! I want to say it isn’t true. I want to believe it isn’t but I am painfully aware that I am just that kind of freak. I abhor housework but I detest a dirty house. A housekeeper would seem the ideal solution. You’d think. Sadly though I would run around like a maniac cleaning before and would cringe and worry for the duration. No, I wouldn’t worry that something was being stolen except maybe my dignity. When I view my house on a day to day basis I feel pretty good about it but the minute an unexpected guest arrives I see it as straight out of an episode of hoarders.
Would it be odd to follow the housekeeper around apologizing and explaining?

  1. My wife is the same way. If she could get Christmas out of the way back in October she would. She stresses too much. That’s where I come in to do all the last minute dirty work (cleaning, decorating, wrappinp) to allow her to ‘get in the mood’ …for Christmas that is πŸ™‚ We had a house cleaner and like you she was embarrassed to what the girl walked into. We were so time constricted we had a dog do-do backyard service monthly. Now, to me, that was luxury! Happy Holidays. I hope Santa is listening…
