quick! everyone come over! hurry! while it lasts!
the living room, entry and breakfast room are clean. it took five hours. i think we could have built another apartment complex with the dust. i still need to vacuum and mop, but the improvement with dusting, sweeping and straightening alone is nothing i could explain in words. i am purposefully not taking "before" pictures because you'd likely report me to cps for raising a child in such conditions. it's just beautiful now though. i'm really wondering how messy i can let a 860-square-foot apartment get. heaven help us when we get a house. maybe some "after" pictures after i rest these weary knees. you know you've worked hard when your knees and heels hurt. either that, or i'm old and out of shape. your guess is as good as mine. all i know is i'll be sleeping well tonight.
on tomorrow's agenda: ellie's room.
wish me luck.
