Today was a day of monumental achievement.  Megan began before I got up, and cleaned every surface in the main area, moving all the furniture, dusting everything, mopping, and even trimmed all the fringes on the pillows and shop-vac’d under the cushions and all the chushions and pillows, till my couches looked sparkly new! 🙂
