in about two hours today i overhauled our gritty apartment. with all old, beat-up (but rich in character) wood flooring, grit just kind of is a permanent entity in the house. combine that with constant snow, ice, gravel, and salting outside, our floors were in pretty rough shape. after wiping down the kitchen and dusting the living room, i decided to go ahead and vaccuum the whole shebang. then, after getting that far, i figured i may as well go ahead and go the distance and pull out the murphy’s. an hour later and two angry trapped cats staring at me sullenly from our sunroom and i had a freshly mopped apartment and room. it’s so beautiful.
