Don't you have the tilting type windows? I thought it's the standard with building managements everywhere (but I admit, I only had experience with NYC).
The tilting type allows you to wash the windows, even the tall ones (mine are 5'-6"h) and reach corners while staying inside - just lower the frame and tilt it horizontally towards interior of the apartment.

You're lucky you're not in Fargo...it was wet-snowing there all night.
I hope you rewarded yourself for escaping pneumonia with big mug of something hot and spicy!

Forgot to add - I had same home-improving urge yesterday: I started to paint dining chairs, a long-postponed project. My back is furious with me already.
Brush-on paint stripper on a small surface, wait 20 min, scrape foul-smelling layer off, repeat about 20 times on all surfaces, wash the chair, dry the chair, sand the chair - and finally, paint the chair!

So far, only one is finished. 3 more to go!

LOLOL I have locked myself out of the house a couple of times... and well it was painful to say the least to get myself back in... now I keep a spare key with someone always...

Tatyana, re-finishing chairs! Yikes. I am so bad at home improvement projects, as I think we've all just learned.

Sean :)

O'YA Bula Bula Bi :), too!

Pallavi - I lose even spare keys, so unfortunately, these things do not work for me. In fact, I lost my keys so much as a kid that I learned to pick the lock of my house. Uhhh, maybe I shouldn't admit that!

That's hilarious. Where do you live that strangers are nice enough to help the sweatpant-clad lady screaming on the balcony?

Good lord.. welcome to the club.. maybe we need to tie it up in the purse that we carry
