When we moved in, we were assured it would be months before the first inspection. Now a little over a week after moving in, they're doing an inspection of all units to look for people smoking in their apartments. And including ours in that, even though we were the ones complaining about the cigarette smoke in the halls (Amy is VERY allergic), and already told them about all the nicotine one the walls from them not cleaning this place very well when the last person moved out.

Luckily, there wasn't a lot to do. I got everything I could either into the closet or under the tables by the bed, or under the bed itself. My room looks very nice. Amy is still working on her bit. I did dishes, too, and as soon as the kitchen floor is clear, I'm gonna sweep up and one or both of us is gonna clean what few small messes have accumulated. Anyway, I will be very glad when I can get a storage unit for most of the crap currently residing in the closet. I want to be able to actually go in the closet.

Also got the space under the microwave cleared out of all the boxes and stuff that were under it. I keep wondering if it's possible to put a chair there. I think I would have to move the old microwave stand and put the chair there, though, because putting it on either side of that counter-top (which has an empty space under it because it was designed for a person in a wheelchair) would put it in the way. I'm also not happy with where the trash is, but I can't think of a better place for it.

I am going to try to work out some kind of printed-out cleaning schedule thing rewarding myself with stickers for getting stuff done, since that's working so well at keeping me from forgetting my anti-depressant. I don't actually like messy houses, I just find it hard to keep things clean. But I intend to keep it as clean as possible at all times to make inspections easier to prepare for. Ideally, I'd like to be "Oh, an inspection? Well I'll mop the floor once just to be sure." and have that be all I'd need to do. Not sure how realistic a goal that is, but it's good to have goals.
