I am grateful for having extra money in our budget to afford cleaners who come to our house every 2 weeks, and for a gardener that keeps our backyard in order. Getting a cleaner was a Christmas present for me many years back, and it's a gift that just keeps giving, because, while both of us like to keep our house orderly and clean, neither of us wants to spend time on washing bath stalls and toilets or vacuuming. It works out well for us to maintain a reasonable degree of order and cleanliness between visits of cleaners with small touch ups and leave the big jobs that require more time to them.
What do we do with all this free time? We make a conscious effort to spend some of it as a family - going places, playing board games, watching TV. Also, all of us have our own hobbies, and I am grateful for free time to pursue mine - blogging, reading, trying new recipes. I am grateful that my daughter is learning to treasure free time and find her own interests. I hope that her life will afford her the same luxury of free time that we enjoy so much and that she learns not to waste her free time when she does have it.
