Spring Cleaning Task 1 - Done!

I have dusted all of the blinds in the house...TEN 6' x 2' and washed all of the drapes.  Feels good, and definitely a task needing to be done.


My Mom really helped a LOT on Saturday.  She stayed Friday night and then left Saturday evening.  First, I vacuumed all of the blinds

and Mom went in and dusted them.

We got half of them done Saturday and then I finished the rest yesterday. 

A few things I learned...when your toddler is "helping" you with the vacuum, make sure you track where she goes with the vacuum attachments...I still can't find the extender arm so the top 3 slats of the blinds actually didn't get vacuumed because I couldn't reach them.  I still have NO idea where she put it!  Hopefully it will be recovered with the rest of the spring cleaning tasks. : {

Next spring cleaning task...Dusting!
