And I’ve been so busy dismantling it that I haven’t had time to post any pictures. But, here are some things I’ve learned:
NEVER shine a black light behind a toilet before cleaning the area.
The Swiffer extender thingy has multiple uses. It is likely that I will go through at least three boxes of disposable duster heads before the house is clean.
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers take do not completely erase stensils…but they do dim them. It is likely that I will go through multiple boxes of those as well.
I am lousy at making color choices under pressure.
Carpet is the easiest thing in the world to remove.
Carpet glue is not the easiest thing in the world to remove.
My dad is a perfectionist when it comes to making things right in my home. He is awesome and I will not share him.
My mom has an amazing gift for not getting completely overwhelmed by the to do list and keeps things organized when the list seems to be growing instead of shrinking. I will not share her either.
Arched windows are beautiful. However, they are a pain when it comes to window treatments.
I have discovered that my neighbors on one side have a drum set and like to loudly and passionately discuss politics in their lanai (that’s what we call the pool area). This is WAY better than my apartment neighbors who smoke and yell at each other and their toddler all. day. long.
Sitting in my lanai with my feet up, watching the sun set beyond my pool is the best thing ever.
