Making progress on the clean-a-thon

Instead of Spring Cleaning I have...uh...Late Autumn Cleaning going on. I now have deeeep clean area rugs in the living room. Feels darned good. I did 2/3 of the big one that covers most of the room and then I had to empty the water bin and clean out a crap-ton of gunk out of the various bits and bobs. Unfortunately when I put stuff back together, I didn't have much suction at all and was getting frustrated. I fussed with the bits and found out that I didn't have one of them back on just perfectly and that's what was causing the issue. Well, when you go for the cheaper model, you have to learn to roll with the punches.

I also slaughtered an entire hoard of rogue dustbunnies that were camped out under the entertainment unit. Ew. With cats, boy does hair and dust and bits of kitty litter get errrrrrywhere, doesn't it? I vacuumed but didn't deep clean the bedroom since the rug in there is new (yes, it has been barf-christened on once and quite spectacuraly so but I also had scrubbed like a maniac to clean that up so I could sleep decently that night)

I felt safe enough that it was going to keep functioning to also take the big box that the new cleaner came in out to the recycle dumpster along with a few other recycles. Since my place is pretty dinky, big boxes get in the way and while yes, kitties luuuve boxes, since JonJon had already tried to eat the styrofoam once, the box had ta go. There's a lot of little clutter around which has been bugging me so I'll have to methodically tackle it this week. Thanksgiving isn't going to be at my place but I'd like it to be nice for the extended weekend next week so I can just chill and enjoy it. Oh! I didn't mention that Emily invited me to have Thanksgiving with her and her parents down the street. Her sister and the nieces and nephew are going off to have turkey day in Virginia with others so it'll be the four of us. I haven't had Thanksgiving with anyone besides my two little furbutts in years so I'm very happy to have been invited and I'll get to make some goodies to share.

Anyhoo, the kitties didn't seem too traumatized by the whole cleaning kerfuffle so that's good. JonJon is currently trying to negotiate for a really early dinner right now. Yeahhhhh, not, bud. I gave you treats.

Heh, maybe someday! I actually like helping friends clean/fix up their places. It's part of why I liked helping Emily get the house ready for her parents. Growing up, there was a girl where she and her family were...well...slobs, but she liked having me spend the night because she'd let me clean her room and we'd decorate it. Sometimes she actually kept it nice for a few weeks.

I like cleaning, but can't do it like I used to. Hell, I used to work as a maid and you have to like cleaning for that. The only thing I'm not keen on is dusting. :P

You were very kind to help her. I wonder if she's still messy.

I'm a cleaning nut, too :> I'll YouTube Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners for 20 minutes in the morning just to get motivated sometimes! Love it. Having clean/tidy surroundings makes room for so many possibilities.

Enjoy your holiday!
