This weekend I finally got the other living room window chiseled open to wash it. It was painted shut way more firmly than the first one, but I persevered. Now it's clean and sparkling, and the spring sun pours into my freshly polished living room.
It wasn't all happy window karma, though. I seriously wrenched my back and right hip while bent backwards out the kitchen window, and now I'm limping. But I (the bendee) got off easy. When the window came loose and fell down on him, I think Bachelor #2 (the bender) might have cracked a rib.
