Cleaning Lady Guilt

Does anyone else have this? I love our cleaning lady, but I feel so guilty when she is at my house. I then try to rationalize it in my head..."I am giving someone a job, who might not otherwise have one"..."I am outsourcing this function of my life, just like people outsource their nonprofit questions to me." Either way I slice it, it still exists. Perhaps it is hardwired in my system, after all, I am officially a Jewish mother. However, I thought that I was supposed to be able to dole out the guilt with this title vs. feeling it myself.

Another question out there, how come I need to pick up before she comes? Perhaps I can outsource that service too?

Now if only I could outsource my laundry, cooking dinner every night and sleeping training my 2 year old (again!)
