Maid, Anyone?

I was just wondering if anyone other than me ever looks around their house and wonders, "I need a full time maid" and then realizes - "Oh yeah, I am the full time maid"?

I was contemplating this yesterday as I swept dirt and mud off the floor yesterday for the 3rd time because my wonderful, hard-working and amazing husband thinks his dirt covered shoes, "Aren't that dirty" and enjoys tracking dirt into my house at various intervals during the day. Now, normally I am an easy going, don't mind sweeping three times a day if that means I get to stay home and raise my kids, kind of person. But, being that I am a little bit pregnant and a lot hormonal - things get to me more these days it seems.

I think the root of this issue is the fact that I live in the country and with the country comes dirt and I just can't ever seem to get my house clean like I like it. There is just something so nice and peaceful about having a clean house and it frustrates me to no end when I finally get it clean and then feel like I need to start all over again.

Am I the only mom/housewife that feels this way? If so, it must be the hormones :)
