We had a good day today. I slept for 12 hours last night (I guess I was a bit exhausted after our busy weekend!) and woke up feeling very refreshed this morning.
I had re-arranged our daily routine some, so we started that new routine today and it went incredibly well. Silas was especially excited to start his preschool lessons with me (he’s been talking about getting to start “pwe-schuul” for months!)
After homeschooling was finished, I was able to get the house picked up and most all of the unpacking done. And then it was time to tackle the vents.
When I pulled up the first vent in the kitchen and saw all of the dirt, I knew I was in for a nice little cleaning challenge.
Let’s just say, I saw a whole lot more dirt and ick than I had bargained for.
But after washing the vents in the sink and scrubbing around the vent openings with a Mr. Clean Eraser, I felt much better.
The project as a whole took me about 45 minutes. I gave up on trying to vacuum every little nook and cranny and just got the vents cleaned and the worst offenders vacuumed out.
My pile of 7+ things to get rid of: a very old Swiffer that I got free and should have discarded a long time ago, some books, and a shoe that has somehow lost its mate (I kept hoping the other shoe would turn up in all the cleaning, but so far, it’s been a lost cause!).
