odd jobs


There is something so therapeutic about chores and and restoring order to one's environment.
I am always amazed at the amount of odd jobs that one can do to earn a living.
Just a few;
Laundress
Organizer
Computer
Tech aid
Caterer
Chef
Maid
Party Planner
Artist
Gardener
Baker
Dog Walker
Care giver
Driver
Trainer
Life Coach

Fashion seems to dictate a perfectly ordered life along with hiring one for a variety of odd jobs.
What sorts of odd jobs or chores would you pay someone to help you with around the house?

I would love to hire a chef...I really hate cooking! But I'm too cheap and can do anything needed to be done. I would love to hire a painter, but hubby says he can do it....maybe after football and ski season is over he will...maybe!

I would definitely hire someone to fold and hang my laundry. I really don't like doing it. Laundry just sits there for days!

I try to do most of the normal, daily chores that come up around my house, but I would love to have a cleaning lady--I do not enjoy the time it takes to clean the house. However, like "Formerly known as Frau" I'm too cheap to pay for having it done.
best,
Susan

I manage to keep our home, my mom's and employer's home on track. That being said I would like to simply have a WIFE!

I hate HATE cleaning the cat box. No fail - my kitty sits and watches and waits so she can run right in as soon as you get it clean. Why can't they just let it sit for a little bit?

Susan,
A Cleaning Lady would be a nice gift to yourself.
Maybe for a special treat.

Joyce,

I have help cleaning the house... and of course I help others organize, design and many times act as a life coach - but I don't find my work "odd"; I love it!

Cristin,
Oh, pardon me, I meant to title this post "chores" - I mean odd jobs merely as an array of jobs that one might do or one might be hired for. I love all the jobs created to help.
I would love someone with your services,,,,
