    Yay Catherine! Don’t you love it when those horrible hanging over your head things turn out to be not so bad?

    Yay also Tybee and ejchase! I had my browser open to an earlier page the first time I posted, and I didn’t realize until now that I missed you. Keep at it!

    Not to slow you down but the vinyl slats are wonderful for cutting into 4" pieces and labeling with a pencil garden plants or those potted for sale. Just saying that someone may use them for this purpose.

    That is a cool idea! worth grabbing one at habitat come spring, just for that purpose.

    plus .5 hour today when cleaning out an armoire and found a box of --you guessed it--pictures.

    This after returning the extra album I bought for this contingency. and sending duplicates to all three sons and declaring the early years finished.

    Some are duplicates but many are not--it's a metal box the size of a shoebox.

    My husband said, "just burn them," and I said no way--some wonderful pictures in there. Will need to buy one or two more albums and rearrange the ones we have--it's basically 1990-2002, so at least we know what albums they belong in.

    Plus 2 hours figuring out why my two computers not working and got both of them printing--upgraded the operating system on one and had to get a new Word for the other--but now they both work.

    Since one was lying in a bag as clutter, I am going to count this as decluttering, if only massive frustration.

    (new total 25.5)
