Over the last two days, I did not have a spare minute -- literally -- to devote to decluttering. LAME. I have been running around making myself nuts over Hannah's birthday party, which was supposed to be a simple affair but, due to my desire to make everything myself, was somewhat less than simple. And while I'm glad I did it that way, it meant that I completely derailed this week's challenge. So, penance! I will knock out the remainder of the pantry, line the shelves in the bathroom, and tackle the heinous basement closet tomorrow while starting day one of...sound the trumpet...vegetarian week, which will begin tonight at 7 and end at exactly 7 pm on Saturday: the Bacon and Beer Party.
