Foreboding title right? That's intentional. That's because it's now time to start the massive house cleaning before my sister and her husband come stay with us. Like I said before the house is a mess, and I am the only one expected to do anything. I'm starting this a bit earlier than usual since I really want to do a thorough job and don't want to be even more rushed as we get nearer to Christmas. It's going to suck, but at least it's a less concentrated kind of suck.
I started off today cleaning the hallway, took me several hours, but I managed to make it look presentable. Although, the living room is bit more of a mess since I had to move several boxes into it. And eventually I'll have to deal with those. I also did some small things in some of the other rooms that need to be cleaned, but today was mostly all about the hallway.
I still have some work to do in it though. I was unable to clean the stairs since my brother's backpack was still on it. But tomorrow he's been instructed to move that or else. Then I can clean the stairs, they won't take too much time.
But then I get to start working on everything else.
Wish me luck, I'm going to need it. I already had to talk myself down from getting super mad several times today and almost quitting. And it's only day one!
I guess Christmas can't be all fun and games.
