Summer Project: Cleaned Garage, check
According to my fitbit thing, I walked about 8000 steps cleaning the garage today. I mostly emptied it out, swept, then threw a couple of buckets of water down, swept more (the water helps get rid of the road salt left over. I actually do it a couple times in winter, too, when it's dry, but not with as much water.)
I took this while the water was drying. Once it was dry, I put the stuff back in, including my kayak and car, and now it looks less tidy than it did, but still way better than when I started.
When I was a kid, I used to hate it when my Mom would declare it time to clean the garage. But as an adult, I get to a point where it's just time, and I just do it. It takes a couple of hours, and then I feel way better about it.
People have parties in their garages around here, and also sometimes have TVs set up in them. Where I'm from, I don't remember people having parties or TVs in the garage. Do you have parties or a TV in your garage?
Other people can't park their car in theirs because there's lots of stuff. (Often it's kids stuff; kids acquire lots of stuff to put in garages!)
