worn out vacation brain
Slow progress is being made in the basement cleaning project. I didn’t know were to start, so first I cleared a corner, swept with a broom, then shop vac'ed, then got down on my hands and knees to scrub the cement floor with pine sol cleaner.
After rising several times, I got out my steamer mop.... I can't wait until the whole floor is steamed clean.
Next, I cleaned off one shelving unit and dismantled and carried it up into the backyard to hose it off. Then, I set the clean shelf back on the small clean section of the floor and starting dusting off boxes, throwing out some, and putting some back on the clean shelf.
The work was good therapy, as I was starting to calm down about the Charles City School Board's decision to tear down the neighborhood school which I attended grades K-12..... but then I found myself getting pissed off at..... Greg... my husband.
Here I am busting my buns to clean, and he is not helping, he is back at work. He conveniently chose a few important boxes to take to the KC house, and the rest of the accumulation from 17 years of marriage is left for me to deal with.
This is not feeling very "equal" in our otherwise good partnership of a marriage. But, I guess either way, if I want to sell the house and move to KC, or stay in Des Moines.... this basement needs to be cleaned. I just am going to have to buck up and do it! However, it's obvious the 3 days will not be enough to finish this project.
Here shows some progress on the one side:
