Anthony (the bf) has been away for a few weeks so without him underfoot I Have managed to get a TON of serious spring cleaning done. I cleaned out the basement and my large walk-in closet. I donated two large boxes and three large bags of clothing. I have vacuumed, dusted, washed walls, cleaned ducts (as much as I can, have a professional coming next week) cleaned windows, done dishes, cleaned and repaired a few things around the house that needed doing. Cleaned out what seemed like a THOUSAND empty boxes from the back porch. I can actually access and use that entire room now. Anthony had a weird fixation with saving packaging. I can understand some things, like computer hardware...if it's defective, you'll need the original packaging to return it. But for heaven's sake, there were boxes from the coat hooks I mounted last year, and Anthony's computer chair which he's had for at least a year, the box for the ceiling fan we mounted six months ago, etc etc. I had a jolly bonfire in the pit in the back yard to dispose of it all. I'm confident my bathroom would pass muster even if my mother conducted the inspection. All I have left to do now is clean all the animal hair off the couch and clean the stove and microwave in the kitchen. Whew!
