Dust mastodons!!

I just pulled the washer and dryer out--a frozen pipe caused my washer to overflow, so that area is nice and clean now!!

I haven't had the stove and fridge out for a while--I got a new knee last winter and have been slacking off on moving furniture and other heavy items.

Cheaper than remodeling. I'll mark my calendar.

the fridge and oven gets pulled out when enough of the cats' toys have collected there.

it's like christmas to them each time. lots of furry mice, crinkly balls, and stringy things to play with for a few hours until they get tapped back under out of reach once more.

Funny, kids are the same way. They have some "new" toys to play with until they get knocked underneath again. Mostly Hot Wheels. I recently discovered that just opening the storage drawer under the oven gives me access to the floor beneath so that gets cleaned a little more frequently now than it used to. The fridge... not so much

When the fridge was delivered, it was on wheels...the delivery guys were going to remove them...I asked them if they were crazy. I was the first person to ask them to leave the wheels on. It only rolls in straight lines, but it's enough to get it out of there. And it's MY fridge, it doesn't belong to the apartment.

My fridge rolls out easily, and isn't really hard to do. I find spills under there from who knows where, I've done it twice in the year and a half I've lived here.

Still don't have a cat to hide toys yet, but I'm really thinking about it. I sure would like a kitty to keep my lap warm about now.

The stove on the other hand is on those "jacks" they are not set right and I'm not about to mess with it. The bottom drawer isn't a drawer is doesn't remove so all I can do is reach under it a few inches.

yes I did find 2 areas of dried wet stuff that was a bit like dried goo. Have no idea how it could get dead centre of the fridge unless it is the fridge itself leaking something gooey.
