The non-vacation vacation July 3rd, 2012

Last week I decided to take my last two vacation days, not for a vacation, but to have two days to finally finish cleaning the walls, ceilings, and carpet of my home.  It got to the point that I didn't even feel like coming home any more.  The brown, tobacco stained walls were down right depressing.

So, on Saturday bright early morning I started by steam cleaning and wiping the walls and ceilings in my living room, dining room and hallway.  It took me all day just to clean the living room and dining room areas.



I had removed all the rugs so that they wouldn't get all stained from the goo dripping from the walls and ceiling.


Tadaaa....all finished and sparkling, shiny white.  Without repainting.  The paint is only 5 years old.



That night I took a shower and slept for 14 hours.  Was I wiped out!!!  The next morning I could hardly walk.  It felt like some one had tightened the muscles in the back of my legs.

Then it was on to the stairs and hallway which took me all of Sunday.  Finally by 7 PM I was done.  Then I washed every towel in the house, hung them out to dry.  An hour later I had them folded and put away.  Then I went to sleep again.

Today I'm still sore, but it was so worth it.  My house is once again a pleasure to come home to. :)
