Last two weeks have been window washing time on the hill. I started with 2 large and 4 small windows in the family room downstairs. Plus these had wooden storm windows on them that Puppy  had to take down and put back in for me as they are extremely heavy. 
Next, I did the 8 large and 9 small windows in the front. After the weekend and rest, I did all the bedroom windows and two bathroom windows. All of these were only done on the outside so I still have the inside to go. 
Next week, I will spend time washing the windows along the upper porch. Since the whole back is sliding glass doors and big windows which run the entire length of the porch, it will take at least a couple of days to do those. Then  and only then will it be time to do the insides. 
The kitty justice is I plan to put the large fan out on the porch and to keep me cool. 
More instructions from H. Jackson Brown Jr.'s book.
49. Buy vegetables from truck farmers who advertise with hand-lettered signs.
50. Put the cap back on the toothpaste.
51. Take out the garbage without being told. 
52. Avoid overexposure to the sun. 
53. VOTE.
54. Surprise loved ones with little unexpected gifts. 
55 Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. 
56. Never mention being on a diet.

I'm under the impression that you're a very organized, pedant person. Kudos to you! I'm sure the windows of your house are perfectly clean now.

Instruction nr.56 - Perhap what the writer means is not to mention you're on diet when treated with food while on a visit ; it wouldn't be polite.

Generally, I do mention being on a diet. It helps and adds to my motivation, since people expect me to show results and I'm ashamed to let them down.

There is nothing like setting a goal and working towards it...there is something special about clean windows:)

If only you were correct. I still have the insides of the windows to do and the windows on the back porch. Those are the hardest to do because you have to do them in the afternoon because that is when they are in the shade. I too am one to mention a diet because then folks are willing to not tempt you with forbidden foods. Peace

The only problem I have is when I set a goal pacing myself so I will not run out of physical strength. Peace
