Now with 80% less stank!

In a scientific study, we have determined that we have the WORLD'S BEST FRIENDS. Today was a day I wouldn't've wished on people I hated..

We had the biggest dumpster possible delivered yesterday - and were worried that it was too big! It was full by 3 o'clock and we have a whole row of full trash bags lined up for dumpster #2
Click on the picture of the dumpster to see how it progressed through the day.

Tre, in an act of bravery mixed with a whole lotta love, helped me clean the bathroom.

It was a mini-saga of finding one bathroom that would work, and getting it cleaned up by the time someone needed to use it. We found the door, which Christine cleaned, scrubbed the room out from floor to ceiling (fantastic mixed with comet cut through amazing amounts of grossness) and had it fresh as a spring breeze just in the nick of time.

Daniel managed to get the kitchen clear and seemed to double the size of the room.

Take a look at the front room. We went through an entire bottle of fabreeze, which actually helped more than I thought it would. Not as much as getting the dead rats and rotting food out, but it's possible to be inside without gas masks on now.

So the whole place is emptied out, and tomorrow we're going back to start cleaning. We have to get another dumpster before we can get rid of the rest of the trash. I feel bad about how much is still outside the house, but it'll be sooo much better soon.

And now it's my turn for a long hot shower!

I came here from Casa Decrepit too. I'm in Alameda too, we're trying to spruce up our Victorian, it needs a little makeover. You are lucky to have great friends to help you out, it looks like a big job! Congrats on getting started and welcome to the neighborhood!

Here from Breaktime- I'm glad I stopped by on Saturday. . .You guys really do have some dedicated friends! You made a big dent in cleaning that place up.
Nice little animation of the dumpster filling, too.

Wow, what a job! And what a beautiful house it will be when you're done.

I was going to comment on the animated gif, too. Perfect use of information design.
