I have a very hard time keeping my house neat. I don't have the energy or time to put into it. (Remember I have a 2 hour commute even with the new job, I work full-time, and I need at least 10 hours/day sleep.) For years my mother has helped me as she can. It's a less than ideal situation.
Anyway, I'm going to have more money now. I haven't worked full-time in years, and I'll be doing that, plus I got a substantial raise. So I'm going to hire someone to help clean.
