Here I thought the ‘Manly Man Free Service’ would be a hit…but nary a chortle appeared in my comments. **Sigh**
See, What I didn’t tell you is that Mr. Perfectly told Son #2 to run down and call themselves ‘Manly Man TREE Service’, but Son #2 heard incorrectly, and made the whole thing really funny by saying “Manly Man FREE Service”
I have a dilemma. I’m back on the Graduation Party issues……..My lovely grandparents may be coming. Grandpa is 91, and Grandma will be 87 this year (I believe). So, what’s the problem? She’s a clean freak. At their age, they clean BASEBOARDS every Monday…….(Monday is their deep cleaning day). Um……yeah. In the 17 years we’ve lived in our house, I can count easily on one hand how many times the baseboards have been cleaned in MY house. Same with the windows. Same with the wood floors (I mean they are swept up, but not SCRUBBED).
So, since my house stinks like the 3 resident dogs and 2 sweaty boys, I need to clean. CLEAN, people. And I detest cleaning---DETEST it.
What are some quick and easy solutions to work on odors from floors, walls and so forth? I’ve heard Murphy’s oil soap---and I suppose on the walls (which are in terrible shape---regarding dirt, that is), I’ll use ammonia. Maybe the stench of ammonia will cover the critter smell that lives with us.
I want easy effort ideas. Things that will allow as little hard labor as possible. I realize that this is a tall order, but I’m sure my good friends can come up with SOME solution!! Oh…and paying a service is out of the question. It would be too expensive.
Oh, and it needs to be quick, too……since the doggie smell may come back, I can’t clean too early in the month………it needs to be fresh as a daisy the week of 05/22/09.
The Tree Guys are back at the house today. I hope this will be the end of the ordeal. We will miss our pretty shade trees, but since they are dead (or nearly so), the shade they offered was minimal. The doggies won’t get to chase their squirrel friends, either.
Well, that’s about all I’ve got on this Monday Morning.
