Today I made an attempt to do a complete cleaning of the bathroom, since the pipe-cleaning company has finally left after 2 and a half weeks of the water being on, then off, then on, hot, then cold, then hot, then off, and constant banging, clanging and stomping around various apartments. YES! So now I know they will not be back to trash our bathroom again and I can clean knowing it might stay that way for a couple of days.
I tried German-style mopping and this first attempt was a complete disaster. There's no way to squeeze out the mop! It didn't occur to me that this was going to be a problem until after I started, of course. Do I squeeze it out with my hands? In the US I admit when I did the bathroom, usually it was such a small room I just did it on my hands and knees. It works better anyway. Our bathroom here is really large though.
I have noticed our red hand and bath towels, despite having been through a few washings now, are leaving copious amounts of red lint all over the bathroom. I've never had this problem before...is it a side effect of not having a dryer that collects lint?
And in other news....my video game came!!! The question is...should I start it? I start class again Monday morning, with a test that I should be studying for (despite the instructors' insistence that it's really easy). There's no way I could get very far in the game by then, especially since I'm leaving mid-Sunday to stay with a friend in Mainz the night before the test. Then the game would torment me for the two weeks in class...I know I will be dying to find out what happens next. Of course, I'm dying to find out RIGHT NOW what it's like....would it hurt to start?! I feel like a little kid.
