I cleaned my garage today. My Darling Wife took off to the San Antonio Zoo with her girlfriend and a haffadozen children, and they ran out of seats in the van. As soon as I heard I was the odd-man-out, I thought “finally, I’ll have a legit DAY to work out in the garage with no ‘can you be done now?s”
So for about 10 hours with a couple of meal breaks, I cleaned up the garage. Only one bag of trash and one bag of recycling were taken out, plus some cardboard – it’s not Junk, it’s Stuff! How deep was this cleaning, you ask? Whereas previously walking in the garage resembled modern dance between the piles and there were specific places to place a foot . . . I swept the entire garage floor. And whereas my bench had become a place to store stuff between working on stuff, I cleaned the entire benchtop, most of it with isopropanol to clear out some stains.
