I did a lot of cleaning today. My mother has lived in this house for 20 years and.... well, she's never been big on housekeeping. I got on a ladder and got way up high. I worked for a couple of hours on high shelves, decorative fixtures, the fake ceiling rafters. There was a lot of old pet hair accumulated up there. I washed 2 walls also, and a couple of doorframes that she grabs onto when she walks through; over time that adds up to a lot of grime. I washed it all off.

Nothing looks any different. Things looked dirty when I started but now that they're clean it's not noticeable to anyone but me.

Argh, you had to mention housework! Please come to my place, I'll even help you clean - I get overwhelmed trying by the time I've surfaced clean, or figure out how to be efficiently organized. Coupled with the discouragement that one can have an area clean and tidy for only a few minutes.

Housework is a good workout.:/
