Yes, I got the damn blinds clean. Most of them, anyway; I have a few left to do. They are made of some cheap plastic that just grabs on to dirt and, because they are held up by flimsy little clips, it is impossible to clean them in place. So I yanked 'em down and soaked them in a bleach/laundry soap mix in the tub. That, plus some scrubbing, did the trick.
All that contortionism did nasty things to my back. Thank goodness today's cleaning work can be done while standing more-or-less upright. I may actually get it all finished today. Or not.
I'm not in the mood for this stuff. For once, my online horoscope got it more-or-less right:
Aries Mar 21 - Apr 19
It's time to stand up and speak. You've got some mighty powerful sentiments in your heart, and they're just clamoring to get out. If there's one sign that knows how to get things off the ground, it's yours.
Now all I have to do is get up the nerve to "stand up and speak." The fear that no one will listen is strong.
Of course I won't let all of my "powerful sentiments" out, for reasons I will leave you to guess....
Oh, well. Time to shampoo the carpets.
