Things That Bother Me

Sarah here, again. Last night, some house guests we had over got somewhat irritated at me for saying that I "hate my house." The truth is I don't hate our house. Our house has some great bones, lots of charming character, and it's not a cookie cutter house (where it looks like every other one on the block). However, at least I think like every wife/homeowner is, there are things that I don't like about the house. So today, I'm going to share one of those things, and see if you have any ideas on how to help me get it done.
This is a picture of a corner in our sunroom. It drives me crazy. I don't know how to get it cleaned. This morning, I got me a bucket of hot, soapy water, a new sponge, and took after it. But it didn't really work. I really wish I could just bring a power washer in and just spray the whole thing down, but I don't think that's plausible. Take a closer look:
I know! It's disgusting- I can't believe this is a picture of something in my house. Any ideas?

I can relate Sarah! There are thing about my house that I hate too. It's part of getting an old house. This morning, I was mopping the kitchen and it just wouldn't get clean. I finally got on my hands and knees with a paper towel to try to get the dirt up. I saw that the tile the previous owner put in is EXTREMELY textured and porous. So, dirt from God knows how many years has been collecting in these tiny holes. So it's pretty much always going to look dirty... unless you and I both buckle under the pressure and bring power washers indoors!! Sucks. I know. Hmm, maybe I'll blog about the things I hate about my house.... could be good therapy.
