In the few short hours since I posted my story request, I have had eleven responses. Thank you very much to all of them.
They all agree it's one of two stories. Either;
"My House, My Rules" by Autofocus
"Hiring a Housekeeper" by Misguidedchild.
I have read "My House, My Rules" and yes, it does fit my description pretty well but it is not the story I was looking for. I do believe it was "Hiring a Housekeeper" but I can not be positive about that right yet because I have not yet had time to sit down and start reading it. I have bookmarked it and, actually, it's open in another tab as I write this. For some reason, I thought it was a shorter story. That might be why I couldn't find it, that is, if "Hiring a Housekeeper" is the story I was looking for.
I want to thank everyone, again, who took the time to read my blog and respond to it in such a kind and timely fashion. So... Thank you. :)
Update: Success!! The story I was looking for was "Hiring a Housekeeper" by Misguidedchild. Thank you all for you assistance.
