You must feel SOOO proud of yourself- it's such an amazing transformation! The before and after from your son's bedroom was INCREDIBLE!

Annnnnnnnnnnnndddddd DONE!!! (at least according to my landlord's list)

I finished scrubbing the kitchen floors tonight, although I am really tired, so I didn't do as good of a job as I would have liked, but the landlord only specified that all floors be swept and mopped with clean water. I swept the rest of the house and spot cleaned the hardwood floors where they had a spot on them. There really is never any food anywhere else other than the kitchen and if I do take food anywhere else and anything hits the floor, I generally clean it up immediately. We also don't wear shoes in the house, so nothing is really tracked anywhere either, so the floors look great!

I still have a little clutter on the kitchen table, that I might try to tackle tomorrow before heading out for work, and a few dishes in the sink, but really, I think it is pretty good. I just don't have the energy to put any more into it tonight and absolutely everything on his list is done, so I am not going to stress about it.

You rock! Good luck today with the landlord, but with all the work you did I don't think you need it!

Great job!!!! That is quite an undertaking you have conquered there! Now you just gotta keep it up so that you dont ever have to go through this again.

You are so awesome

Thank you for posting-- I've been reading along, and it has been so motivating. If I had a landlord, he'd probably have said the same thing about my place over the last couple months. But it's coming together... thanks in part to your inspiration

Can't wait to hear how it goes with the landlord today.

Checking in for an update mama, how did it go?
post #157 of 181
You've inspired me!
You did a fantastic job--it must feel great!
(I have to say I liked it better with the bookshelves on the landing vs. empty but you've gotta do what you have to do for landlord--I'm a fan of books)
