Before & After

March 17, 2008

Journal, Lauren


If we had just checked the filter, we wouldn’t have cleaned the basement, so I guess some good has come out of this travesty.  (Lloyd maintains that there still might have been something else wrong with the furnace.  We’ll see when the bill comes.)   It’s not spotless, but it’s better than it was.

less gross

It was a long day.  Sorry I’m not writing more.

    I like the decorative cat throw you placed on the floor in the second picture. It really makes the colors pop and ties in with the whimsical theme of the space. (Am I missing any HGTV buzz words?)

      I think the only HGTV thing missing is Ty Pennington, (weep!), AND wildly geometric fabric drapes to cover the storage shelves. Likely a pattern to match the floor design.

    Wow! That’s a lot of cleaning. Thank God for dirty filters that make you clean your basement!

    Even when your basement was messy, it was neater than ours. Maybe we should stop changing our filter…

    Thanks for the pictures … now today I can play
    “What’s different in these pictures?” I’ve already started & its really fun. I’ll let you know the total when I’m finished.

    (Note from an elder: Stop cleaning…life is too short)

    Way to go, Sommerers! I’m sure that Phennig provided moral support, right? I suppose the best for Cricket to help was to stay out of the way.
