Yard work and a tour
We've been in this house for a month. Sometimes it's very hard to believe, but we spent the first two weeks getting moved in and cleaning out our old house. We were supposed to move into this home after it had been professionally cleaned, however when the sale started falling apart and the sellers were getting crabby, we released them from that clause on the day of closing. Instead of finishing up what cleaning that they did promise, they just locked the doors, dropped their keys off with their realtor, stopped by the title company to sign their papers, and drove off into the sunset. So, I've been spending a great deal of time deep cleaning this house. From the ceilings, the light fixtures, walls, windows, window sills, baseboards, heaters, door jams, doors, and floors, I've been scrubbing to remove all traces of old cat, dog slobber, greasy hand prints, scuffs from moving furniture, and copious amounts of accumulated dirt. It's almost done, but I had to change focus for a minute or three.
