Deep Cleaning

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006 · No Comments

After having our house painted last week, it was the perfect opportunity for some deep cleaning on Saturday, especially with the family coming over for Easter Sunday. Saturday was pretty nuts in terms of how much we accomplished: Moved all furniture and rugs out of living room, family room, and kitchen; vacuumed and swept and Murphy’s oil soap mopped everywhere; and then all the standard cleaning, as well. It was easily a 12-hour day of cleaning. Fortunately, Jami and Hugh invited us over for a break and dinner in their backyard that evening.

Friday night I joined Alex, Cati, and others for the new movie, Thank You For Smoking (thoroughly funny and enjoyable), followed by a drink at Hollywood on Lark Street in Albany.

Sunday was a smashing success. There were 11 of us (family plus Cati) for the most excellent Easter dinner — ham (for those who partook), quiche, asparagus, salads, yams, potatoes, and other delights. Jen, with the help of her mom, did an awesome job preparing all the food. I helped out here and there, but mostly mingled and enjoyed some mimosas.

We were out cold the rest of Sunday, doing a whole lot of nothing after the exhausting weekend.

This morning some guys are here re-enameling our kitchen sink, which has some chipped plaster, especially around the right-side drain. I took a before picture, so hopefully the after will look fantastic.
