No photos, ya'll, so you'll just have to believe me. I had a friend planning to come and visit us at our house for the first time ever on Saturday. Super exciting, and I was stoked. And then I looked around the house. It was... cluttered is a polite term for it. Every surface was … Continue reading In Which We Cleaned for Three Days
Maybe I just need less STUFF. Except my husband has cool stuff. Are these not the cutest? The green one has a trailer that moves around that you can practice backing up. And of course, my sword from theatrical fencing and some other goodies: Anyway, I set up the shelves: No surprise, they were damaged … Continue reading As If I Needed Moar Shelves
I intend to go through some of what we have in the basement, so I ordered some shelves and bins from Menards to work with. The shipping was steep, but when I went to the nearest stores (I'm looking at you Wally World), the bins didn't even have handles, and the shelves wouldn't fit one … Continue reading Boxes Galore!
I have noted before that I bought myself an easy-to-use vacuum for myself. It's lightweight and has a long tube, so I don't hurt myself carrying it, and I don't hurt myself bending over. The vacuum: I went around last night and vacuumed EVERYTHING I could reach. I even laid down and pulled the storage … Continue reading Vacuum ALL the Things!
There are few things as an adult more thrilling than getting cleaning equipment! I jest, but I am really, REALLY happy with my new vacuum. First of all though, apologies for not having a Friday post this last week. I wrote it. I scheduled it. I scheduled it for the 15th instead of the 8th... … Continue reading Oh, Glee!
So, there's no photos here because I'm wiped. I woke up today and went straight into a cleaning spree. Washed all the dishes, wiped down counters, put items on counters away. Cleared and wiped down center island which is where I found the source of our Mysterious Smell. That would be rotting onions in a … Continue reading Clean ALL the Things!
Creatives will probably know what I mean (and most folks have one for bills), but I had enough energy this last week that I tackled THE Pile of Artwork (and hand written fiction) from my younger years. There was much groaning as I went through it because, wow, awful Fanfiction and Fanart galore! I started … Continue reading House Cleaning Is Like Tetris
We cleaned our basement! Cleared out empty boxes and made sure that as much as possible was off the floor because we do have occasional trickles of water. Also made sure my emergency water supplies were on the BOTTOM instead of over things they could ruin! Here's a look: The basement came with the white … Continue reading Cleaning the Basement for the First Time
While I was at work on Friday, my husband was being a total sweetie. Remember I cleaned up, and I was very proud of myself? My husband was proud of me too. Too bad the tape made it look bad, right? **pause** Well, I came home to this: To refresh you, this is what it … Continue reading **Squee!** Husbandly Surprise
I was quite manic this week while my husband was out at a work meeting, and took it upon myself to clean our entryway. Fully. Completely. I swept, then dust mopped, then mopped again. With the Flylady's mop, which was SUPER NICE. Then I scooted around on my butt (I can't bend over) and scrubbed … Continue reading Manic Cleaning Spree
