Cleaning has proceeded through the day...all the dishes are done except for a couple of pots & pans and the plates I just ate dinner off of. I've also filled a couple more bags with garbage and recyclables, and will be taking a stroll out to the dumpster to dispose of them. Also found the vacuum cleaner -it was buried in the middle of the living room. Unfortunately the carpet beater function doesn't seem to work, and the suction isn't all it could be, so it looks like I'll be sweeping the carpet. :(
I reckon I'll have the living room pretty well squared away before I go to bed tonight, and I'm happy about that.
UPDATE & BUMP: Well, not as squared away as I would have liked to have it at this point, but it's a lot better than it was. I think I'll make one last trip to the dumpster and leave the rest of the box-shuffling & bag-heaving for the morning, because after this last trip to the dumpster I'm going to call it a night.
