I took advantage of the fact that Karen went to Canada to visit the family, (and got premission to) try to clean up our incredibly messy appartment. This is a progress report (with photos 🙂 – see how our appartment looks right now):
On Friday I took over the kitchen, moved everything out and cleaned up all the surfaces. I’ve been also straightening up some minor stuff on saturday – picking up books and putting stuff where it belongs (or where I can safely ignore it until much later). But the big task was still ahead – the living room…
Today, after I got back from work and made myself dinner, I started on the biggest project – picking everything out of the living room – including gadgets and doodas, Karen’s study papers, computers, furniture and all kinds of trash – organizing it out of the way and preparing the leaving room to be washed. 5 hours later, I’m done with it for now – check it out:
See ? nothing left but major furniture (that I don’t have anywhere to dump – I’ll hae to clean around it).
The dirt on the floor can still be seen, I think 🙁 I’ll wash the living room tomorrow after work. I’ll have to do it fast because I’m supposed to entertain people at home later in the evening.
Now, where did all the stuff gone to ? Some of it is in here –
While all the rest is in here –
Anyway, I did finish all that at 3am, so its time for me to hit the shower and go to bed. Good night.
