Now that I’m well on my way down the road to recovery, I’m itching to things unpacked and cleaned here at my apartment. If I had it my way, I’d clean this place from top to bottom all in one stretch, but I’d exhaust myself in the process. I’m going to start with my bathroom. I’m going to make it sparking clean. I still need a toilet brush though. I was at Wal-Mart today and I saw one for $9. Nine dollars is too much for a toilet brush and holder. I saw another one for $3 but the holder part was designed so that one side of it was exposed to air. That meant that when you put your brush back into the holder, it would drip toilet water onto your floor. What a dumb design. I’m going to the Dollar Store tomorrow to see if they have an economical, better designed model.
Next, I’m going to tackle my kitchen. The cleaning part won’t be so bad, the unpacking will be the challenge. This is the most poorly designed kitchen I’ve seen in my entire life. I have a set of four narrow drawers. They’re about 8 inches wide, the width of a sheet of paper. That’s so narrow that any normal-sized cutlery trays won’t fit into drawers. I had to go buy another narrower cutlery tray. I’ll probably need another one just to fit all my cutlery into drawers. Also, all my above-counter cupboards are extremely shallow. So much so that I can’t fit any of my dinner plates into them. It’s ridiculous. The only place I can see for them is the one cupboard below the counter, but I still need to figure out where to place all my pots and pans. Maybe I’ll put them in the drawer below my oven.
I know that some people want to come over and look at my place, but at this point, I’d be embarassed for them to see this mess. To cleaning!
