Many moms in Ottawa and elsewhere feel guilty about spending money on Ottawa maid services. But, it’s important to take care of yourself while you’re taking care of everything (and everyone) else. There are many maid services in Ottawa to choose from and hiring a cleaning lady in Ottawa is an easy, affordable way to free up some “me” time. Still not convinced? Let me show you why you need (and deserve) to spend money on an Ottawa maid service so you can spend more time relaxing on the weekend.

You get up at the crack of dawn, get kids dressed, make lunches, get everyone out of the house on time (well almost), and go to work. You put in a full day, skip lunch, forget your breaks, barely make your bus, and pick up the kids at daycare. Now, there’s supper, helping with homework (secretly worrying you soon won’t be able to help because what’s up with this “new math”?!?), bath time, story time, and bed time (for kids). Then, you clean the kitchen, do laundry, try to relax a bit (all the while running up and down the stairs because so and so can’t sleep, wants a glass of water, had a nightmare, etc.).

You look around and make a discouraging “to do” list; dust the furniture (although the finger drawings in the dust do show some artistic merit); vacuum and wash floors (although you can barely notice whatever that was you stepped in earlier); fold laundry (although it’s quite handy just to pluck something off the pile); and clean bathrooms (although the kids don’t seem to mind so really…). The big question is when will you have the time? You start planning your weekend around all these chores, throw in grocery shopping, swim lessons, kids’ haircuts, an oil change, having the in-laws over for dinner and helping so and so with his science project that’s due on Monday. Then you go to bed to start all over again the next day, wondering if it’s even worth looking forward to the weekend. Maybe you could, if you added “hire Ottawa cleaning lady” to your list!

Sounds like your life? I’m exhausted just reading about it. There’s probably little you can do to alleviate your weekdays but for the sake of your sanity and well-being, something has to give! That’s where Ottawa maid services come in. Let an Ottawa cleaning lady take some of the burden off you so you can take time for yourself on the weekends. Everyone around you will benefit, not just you.

Countless studies demonstrate that leisure time provides noticeable benefits for both your physical and mental well-being.  If the only way for you to have time off is by getting rid of some of your chores, then science is telling you it’s ok to hire an Ottawa maid service. Just think of your Ottawa cleaning lady as an extension of your health-care team!
