    Cool Week-Long Pyramid Challenge - Week 9!

    ~I'm feeling a bit lazy tonight so I'm just gonna copy and paste my explanation from the Week 6 thread.

    ~For those of you who are new to this and as a reminder to those of us who can't seem to follow the rules( me!!), I'll try to explain what this challenge is.
    You will make 7 lists of things that need to be done. The list for the first day will have 12 things on it. The next day's list will have 10, the next 8, then 6, 4, 2 and finally 1 item. The challenge runs from Saturday to Friday.
    Start with the smallest tasks you can think of that for whatever reason aren't getting done. Things that will only take a few minutes to do. As you go up the pyramid your tasks will be less in number but perhaps greater in time consumption.
    It's time to stop procrastinating! Let's do this!~
