If I was a rich girl...

I would have a maid.

Not a housekeeper. I can cook and take care of my kids just fine... I just want someone to come over and clean my house. I hate, hate, HATE, cleaning. I do it anyways of course, but I hate it.

If I don't feel good, if I have a headache or didn't get enough sleep, I have no motivation to clean the kitchen. It doesn't bother me on any deep levels that my laundry room is cluttered or that my shelves need to be dusted.

I wasn't raised to be a housewife...and yet, I find myself in that role. It's supposed to be my responsibility to keep the house and all the domestic things that come along with it...and I find myself resenting that all the time.

I should take pride in our house right? I should WANT to clean and make it look nice... but I don't.
Now don't get me wrong, we aren't living in filth or anything...but I'm definitely no Danny Tanner. (haha I'll give a gold star to anyone who gets that reference).

I'm struggling with how to make myself better at being a housewife. How do you overcome a lifetime's aversion to housework and become Mrs. Clean?
