I am happy to say that I fulfilled my determined tasks and more. The dining room rug is clean, the cat pod changed (with a bunch of masking tape in an attempt to keep the plastic liner in place). I washed down the walls, swept, vacuumed and re-arranged the furniture back to its correct position.
I also boxed my Aunt’s things (which have been sitting in my living room for weeks) and put them aside to be taken to the storeroom.
Fed all the fluffies. Emptied the trash cans in my bedroom and the living room. Plus the recycles out.
