Summer cleaning

Today is a big cleaning day, a chance for me to catch up on chores that have been blatently ignored for too long now. Fortunately, I managed to get a pretty good night’s sleep last night, and woke up this morning feeling better than I felt after that horrible allergy attack yesterday.

Among the things I have to do today: clean the kitchen, mop the floors, vacuum the entire house, dust the furniture (so that the entire place smells like Pledge), get rid of trash and run a bunch of laundry. In addition to that, I have to mow the lawn, which is somewhat overgrown right now, especially in the backyard, because I have ignored it for too long. In fact, this is what the backyard looks like at this moment:

It’s so thick, that I’ll probably have to bag the grass as I cut it or I won’t be able to get through it all, even with the new mower. So with all of this, you can see, I’ve got my work cut out for me today. Hopefully I can manage to get it all done before Dad arrives later this afternoon.
