Today Harry and I didn’t get anything done in our new house, since we had to drive to the rental in Reseda and do some clean up. We had rented a steam cleaner at Ralphs yesterday and hoped to steam clean the office and Master Bedroom first. But when I tried in the morning, the steam cleaner just didn’t want to work. So we drove out to Reseda and exchanged the steam cleaner for a working one. Once we got to the Rental we moved the stuff that we hadn’t taken yesterday into the garage. After that was accomplished I started cleaning the laminate floors, while Harry gave the carpets a good vacuuming. Harry did a great job at prepping the carpets for the steam cleaning. After that Harry and I took turns steam cleaning room after room, when we were done the rooms looked fantastic.
After the steam cleaning we moved the stuff we no longer wanted to the curb. If everything goes according to plan that stuff should be picked up by the city on Monday or Tuesday, at least that what hasn’t been taken by people in the neighborhood. And as we were taking stuff out things were being removed from the pile. Our next door neighbors grabbed our dining table and chairs moments after we put them out there.
After we were done with that, Harry and I packed up my pick up truck with all the remaining stuff from the garage. The rest of the stuff that just didn’t want to fit in the truck went into my jeep. After that was done we drove out to our new house in Agua Dulce. Now all of our stuff has been moved. Tomorrow we will have to go back to pick up the recycling stuff and the stuff for charity and to give the keys back to our landlord.
It was a long and exhausting, but very successful day.
