Whew, the wife and I just completed deep cleaning the first floor today top to bottom at 10:30am. We started early yesterday! We had the wife's family over for her birthday today after we all went to Nick’s Pizza and enjoyed yapping, messing with the nieces and nephews and then eating birthday cake!
These pictures will show the sheer amount of “stuff” we have that we are hoping to reduce. I’m amazed at how small the rooms look in these pictures!
Our living room is only 15x15 so not exactly huge, plus we don’t have a family room so you can see we have packed in a lot of stuff!
I will say however that our surround sound system will blow away the sound systems in most theaters. This system is capable of 125db (there is over 1600 watts in this system), U-571 during the depth charge scene will alter your heart beat and vision, no kidding it’s that intense. Can you see the hidden 80lb monster Klipsch center channel? If we ever do full time RV this is one thing I will miss for sure but believe it or not, it would be worth it, I don’t even need surround sound in the RV, how shocking is that ‘eh? I have made progress over the years!
Our foyer has a monster treadmill that takes up a lot of space! This will be put on eBay and Cragslist very soon. Awesome coat rack though. The carpet right in front of the treadmill was disgustingly dirty, on top of that our new Bissell x2 Proheat kicked the bucket so I ended up doing a good portion of it by hand, not fun. It’s still some what dirty as you can see in this pic so I have a few more passes to make to get it to where I’m happy. I may remove the carpet and install Allure flooring this winter, we’ll see.
Here is a shot of our dining room, clearly we don’t have enough stuff! We are selling the Victrola and pump Organ but haven’t had any luck so if you know somebody who would like these items let me know!
We had this cabinet made by an Amish man, I don’t know what we’ll do with this, we had it made so we could hand it down to our kids, so we have some thinking to do on this one. Our nieces and nephews would love to own it someday I’m sure so we’ll hang onto it until one of them are ready. I’ll probably hold onto a few radios as well.
We are recuperating tonight watching the Bears beat Tampa and then it’s off to Geneseo this Thursday!
Have a great week everybody!
