Well I found out that the girls have not been very good housekeepers this week. I have guests coming to spend a few days and I had planned on putting them up in the girls’ old rooms. I discovered that they probably hadn’t been dusted since the last high school graduation, and that anyone in those rooms would likely suffer from a Vitamin D deficiency because the sun can’t come through the heavy coating of grime on the windows.
I cleaned and cleaned and now it probably looks like high school kids actually did clean up there. Of course the day before our guests are scheduled to arrive, a colony of ants decided to move into the guest bathroom. As I entered and wondered what that moving and bubbling mass of black was on the window sill, I looked to to see what was crunching under my feet. Hopefully the ant treatment will kick in before my guests do.
My son cleaned his room too. I can now see 50% of the floor which is more than I have seen in months. Good thing the ants hadn’t decided to move into his room. It would be some time before anyone would have been able to notice.
