    that list makes me tired. Sounds like a lot of work.

      Ha–next week is the basement. That will be much more work, I assure you.

    Sadly, for a while on that list, I figured that’s what I’d find if I cleaned out my van…

      Our car DESPERATELY needs a clean-out, too. But I have really enjoyed the clean garage, today. I should use that as motivation for the car.

    sounds like the roomba isn’t doing its job out there.

      LOL–it wasn’t plugged in–that was my mistake, for sure. Now back at work in the house.
