A friend of mine was thinking of purchasing a grain mill and a large mixer. When she found out that I had both, she wanted to come over and have a “demo”. LOL I felt like I should be at Sam’s or Costo having a “kitchen demo”.
My friend lives in a very lovely section of town, in a very lovely, clean, well decorated, home. Since I would like to have my friend back over sometime, I got the slaves kids working their butts off, cleaning the house, the day before the “demo”.
Everything had to be scrubbed.
One vacuumed the upstairs hall.
Then I had her vacuum the stairs. Yes, I know we don’t have carpet on our stairs. It has been that way for over five years. We’re Sir Husband is working on it.
Lady Daughter 2 and 3 were suppose to be sorting clothes and cleaning up the floors. and pull things out of the pantry so the floor could be mopped.
Lady Daughter 3 decided to have a tude and refused to clean. So…I made her scrub the baseboards in the kitchen, while I washed the cabinets. Turns out she loved washing the baseboards. She needs to have another tude. The bathroom and hall baseboards need a good wash.
I cleaned the cabinets in the kitchen and washed the curtains. I am sad to say this was the state of my curtains.
These are the curtains that the gazillion baby spiders hatched from. They covered the ceiling and the walls. They made the girls scream and run out of the kitchen, only to run back and “save the bag of M&Ms”, then the M&M were devoured because of the stress.
I took the curtains down and gave them a good washing. I had forgotten what a pretty red color they are.
After all the cleaning, I treated the
slaves kids to a Wendy’s Frosty. This was the first and last time they got to eat in my new van. 🙂
The house was ready for the “demo”. Stay tuned.
