Today I moved the large mats in front of the doors and vacuumed up all the grit underneath them. Then I got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the whole entry (Mom, you should be proud!). I very rarely scrub floors on my hands and knees, although my mom says that is the only way to do it. :) After that, I went over the floor again with my Sh-Mop, for good measure. I was glad I did; there was still more dirt that it picked up! I also used it on the rubber backing of the floor mats, which were pretty gritty, and I gave the mats a good vacuuming on the top. I rearranged all the bags that "live" in the entry--diaper bags, purse, etc. and a few other miscellaneous things. No picture today . . . since I didn't think a floor picture would be all that interesting. :) I haven't cleaned the French doors yet, as today is NOT a sunshiney day. (We are getting a lovely spring snowstorm.) Hopefully we will get sun and warm weather (the best kind of day for washing windows) before this week is over. That is the biggest thing I have left to do in the entry.
Here are my goals for the rest of the week's challenge:
*Organize all the coats and outside gear in the back entry
*Vacuum and mop the back entry
*Clean the windows in French doors and the back entry door
*Put away some of the winter clothes in the back entry closet
*Straighten up all the stuff on the deck
