There's happy space in the house again

I got Critter and Tigger both to help, and we've gotten the family room nice and clean. I took the vacuuming job, since it takes determination to get Flood's hair out of the black carpet. In exchange (since the family room is supposed to be their cleaning chore), Critter vacuumed the kitchen for me.

Before we worked in the family room, I got the boys to empty the dishwasher sink and recycling sink. So now I'm going to go wash all the hand-wash and finish wiping down the kitchen counters, which I started when I was cooking dinner.

Flar's coming home tomorrow. I'm not sure whether he or I will make it to the house first, as he said something about getting here around noon. I think I can get the family room/kitchen/jacuzzi room looking welcoming for him to come home.

Meanwhile, my allergies are having a field day with all the dust I've stirred up, changing light bulbs and vacuuming and stuff.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
