Brrr, It's Been Snowy Just FYI

-I am guessing this isn't going to help our heating bill much. I don't know if you can see it but that's daylight there on the left of the door. That little pile of snow would be the tiny snow drift that worked it's way through over night. We have 3 doors in our home and two of them serve as air conditioner vents in the winter. That snow came in even though I had a rolled up rug against the base of the door.

-Yesterday the boys and I cleaned from sun up to sun down. I armed the 3 older boys with microfiber clothes and we washed walls, doors, cabinets and anything else under 4 ft. I washed all our bedding including the actual pillows. They received the bleach treatment and smelled soo good last night. The washer and dryer worked all day keeping the house a little warmer. Graham has been struggling with allergies and has a cold on top of it. Apparently he was struggling due to dust because yesterday was the first day in a week or more he didn't have any issues. We've been concerned our new little Mellie was the problem and she may be a contributor but yesterday and so far this morning he's much improved. We may have to print out a chore list so dusting, vacuuming, and giving things a good once over become weekly events (I already vacuum daily but the others not so much). I know the wonderful cleanliness and beauty that I currently enjoy is temporary but my is it grand!

Oh, I'm so glad that you have found the source of Grahamie's irritation, and that it wasn't Mellie!!

I know what you mean! I dusted my entire living room, and what a difference it makes. A person should dust and deep clean more then once or twice a year! lol
