I Should Have Taken Photos!
Sunday night, my mom came over to spend the night with us so she could get up early and help me tear Shane's room apart! Wait, let me back up! First she washed all my kitchen cupboards and doors with Murphy's oil soap, then moved into the bathrooms and did the same to all the wood. Next, she went back over the cupboards and doors with Pledge! Smelled so nice! Then, she attacked my huge sliding glass doors off our family room. She got on her knees and scrubbed all the gunk out of the metal tray the doors slide in, then cleaned my doors inside and out! I was ironing for hubby. His new chef's coat was fresh out of the package and had all those stiff wrinkles from being folded so long! I had several phone calls to make as well. By the time she finished the glass doors, I had cooked us a yummy brunch. After eating, we started hauling everything out of Shane's room. Once the room was empty of everything, except the furniture, I left her to it! You all haven't seen anything until you see my mom clean. I'm telling ya', it's worth a vacation down here to Florida just to see that woman in action! While I did things in other parts of the house, she washed all the furniture and then used Old English lemon oil on it. Then she vacuumed the baseboards, windows, and blinds before washing all of them with --- yes, you guessed it! Murphy's Oil Soap, which from here on out will be referred to as MOS!!! She shined the windows with Windex and then vacuumed the entire floor. Shane and I were in the family room sorting through all the toys that we had drug out of his room earlier. What fun it was to watch him make decisions of what to toss in the trash and what to put in the give away pile! Today, we finished the sorting and putting away part of it. He kept a little more than I liked, but he did good. We were able to get rid of several small bins and fit most things into his room with only one additional under the bed storage unit to help out with the toys. I also washed all the bedding, from mattress cover to comforter! It feels good to have one room completely done!
