Let's exercise our imagination some more with this question...If you could have for free, an unlimited service for 5 years which one of these would you choose...and explain why, please...

extremely good cook
personal trainer
personal secretary

For me I'm all about the housekeeper! I prefer my own cooking, no need for a chauffeur, personal trainer just gets me to laughing. What are they supposed to train me to do??? ...lol I don't need a nanny since my kids are all grown and I have no idea what I'd do with a personal secretary. My business is MY business and I don't need a secretary poking around in it.... tongue

So send that housekeeper on over and if it's a nice looking man, instead of some gal then all the better... shocked smilewinkgrin

OK, your turn to choose...

I'm with Chutz, I would choose the housekeeper.  In fact I have been wishing for one for over a year now.  Would make my life so much more manageable.  My weekends would actually be like weekends :-)

I have to agree with you Chutzie and drowzy. It would be great to have someone
come in and house clean, although a personal trainer could help me build up more
muscle mass and I might feel more energetic. For me it's a toss up!
Hugs, Robin

Housekeeper for sure! I love to cook and would have no need for the rest, except maybe a trainer and I just stay too exhausted for much training.

Having a housekeeper is a dream of mine and I don't care what sex nor what they look like as long as they clean to my standards.
luv and hugs

I am allll about the housekeeper, too.

When my partner and I actually are in the same city again, he has promised me we will get a cleaning lady once a week. But freedom from the large chores would be terrific.

I would go with the housekeeper, too. My house is a disaster and I am too tired to do much about it. DH works too hard already and isn't much for cleaning.

I would hire a gardener to grow healthy vegetables and beautiful flowers.
I have a black thumb and too much pain to try to change it to GREEN.

Housekeeper, hands down.  I'd have to clean first however, before I let him/her in this place.

Chutz, dear, you know men don't know how to clean ... at least not many of them. My hubby is the exception though :)

Between the hubby and I we have the cooking and cleaning down. I don't know what I would do with a secretary ... she could plan my naps, but that's about all. We don't have any kids, so unless the nanny takes care of husbands, we don't need her either. I would appreciate a chauffeur with a nice limo that I could lay down in ... but my husband likes to drive. So I guess by process of elimination, I have to take the personal trainer. Just make sure it's a girl with a good attitude who also gives massages.

Extremely good cook ! I, myself, am a great cook (have an uncle who's a chef & I learned a little here & there from him through the years) , but I hate to cook. LOL I'm good at it, but I hate it. Plus, sometimes the energy it takes to stand over a hot stove, over a counter chopping this or that, lifting a heavy pot of water to drain pasta or something, etc... that's energy I'd rather not waste on cooking. I also don't need a personal trainer, I'm my own personal trainer & do a good job at that. I don't drive much, hubby's usually with me so he usually drives me anywhere I need to go, so I kinda have a cheaufer already. (shhh... don't tell him I said that)

So, that's my choice. Extremely good cook.

I think I'd like the personal trainer. I used to run 5 miles a day and weight lift. Just because I'm old
and decrepid doesn't mean I wouldn't like to be back to where I was. Sure would like to get into it
