Yay! I finally got some things accomplished on the challenge today. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for washing windows. I got all three of the living room ones washed, and while I was at it I also washed the curtains. I moved everything away from the wall with the windows, and did a thorough vacuuming/dusting there. I also dusted the piano and the TV and cleaned the TV screen with a nifty little cleaner that is specially made for TVs and computers. And I washed the couch cover at the same time I washed the curtains. Also sorted through a couple of boxes of miscellaneous stuff, put some books away, and moved a bunch of toys into the kids' room.
As a side note, I used a half & half vinegar/water mixture in a spray bottle to wash the windows. Normally I use Windex, but I was wanting to try something more natural. I really liked the way it worked, and I think I will use it most of the time from now on. I like the vinegar smell better than ammonia, plus I know it is not as harsh as breathing in the Windex fumes.
I'll hopefully get to take some pictures of the progress and post them tomorrow.
