I had my little sister and brother come in early with me and together we did deep cleaning in the upstairs. Lots of sweeping, dusting, window washing and bathroom scrubbing. They didn't want to be there but they worked diligently anyway and I was encouraged by their help. I was tickled pink to use my Swiffer for the first time in my Little House. When the kids went home I bought outlet covers and put those on, put all the doors back by their proper doorways to be hung back up soon, and put out the curtains and rods. I couldn't help but put out a few decorative things as well once the bathroom was tidy enough.
Downstairs the guys were hard at work finishing so many jobs. The wiring, sheetrock sanding, priming, trim hanging, crown-molding hanging and spackling and priming. They prepared the kitchen floor for the vinyl and cleared out as much their tools and piles of trash as was possible. Everything was prepared for paint by the time they were done there that day.
