Ah, The Floor Challenge

After a mildly successful weekend of clearing the bedroom floor of clutter I’ve decided to challenge myself to do the entire house.

The living room has been clean and straightened for months. Don’t ask me how.

The living room is in good shape. One down.

The dining room floor is also clear. Woo hoo.

The dining room is also clear and vacuumed.

The space between the loveseats has a large black mark that needs attention.

The two floors that need attention are those in the conservatory and the kitchen.  The conservatory’s white rug needs to be shampooed.

The kitchen floor needs a good, deep cleaning.

And the wooden floor in the kitchen needs to be cleaned.  The rugs have been off for awhile because they need cleaning.

The rug and its twin need shampooing also.

Since they are all small area rugs that shouldn’t be too challenging.

How are your floors? Meaning:

  1. Can you see them? And if you can,
  2. Are they clean?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. I can see mine … and it’s not a pretty sight. Two humans, one dog, and eight cats are a recipe for dirty floors. It’s my goal to take the rugs out on the deck one hot weekend (not this one) and have a shampoofest.

  2. Our solution was to hire house cleaners that come once a week. That means that everything has to be off the floor the night before they come, and we are much less likely to let anything build up in just a week. It makes me so happy to have a clean tidy house, and I love not having to use all my spare time to clean.
