The Puritan in me is still fighting this idea, even though my inner economist says that from a strict cost perspective this is the most efficient way to work. I'm fighting this inner battle on yardwork and housecleaning, but had no problem hiring a plumber or house painters. Somehow, there's still a little bit of SuperWife involved in those tasks.
At least I can content myself with the fact that the work will be done, I can do the pruning myself to make the plants fit the configurations I want and we're getting work done on the interior of the house at the same time.
It's really a good division of labor. My husband is currently fitting flooring on the stairwell. I'm taking a bit of a break as I've just finished chopping up meat for the cats food and started a load of laundry. I'd be working on cutting the stair noses to make them square except that I've already broken 2 bits on the sabre saw this morning and we really need to go buy a new one so I don't break any more.
