Has anyone cleaned their own sensor and can explain to me how to do this?  I'm assuming I set for a while, but just in case, I'd like to be able to do this myself next time around.

Did it several times. Just flipped up the mirror by unlocking the small tab in the lower end of the mirror frame. Used a blower for cleaning. Be careful not to touch the mirror or the sensor during this process, and keep the lens mount down so that dust can fall out. Just presed the mirror down and lock it carefully by presing the tab with a finger nail. Nothing to be afraid of.

Thank you for the help!  I'm good for now, but I see what you're talking about and think I should be able to do this if/when I need to again.
