    Default 2009 Week-long Pyramid Challenge - Week 17

    Just wanted to get my list made up while the kids are distracted.

    As always, this is the challenge to get the little things done. Participants can choose the traditional pyramid shape (12 items on 1st day, 10 on 2nd, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 1 on subsequent days) or may bend the rules and/or shape into anything they desire - just as long as it helps you get things done!

    The rest will have to wait, we decided to go out this afternoon and buy a new bed. That took a big chunk out of the day (and the bank account), but we were supposed to do it a year ago and kept putting it off. Hopefully my nights will a bit less painful from now on.

    Oh, and I broke my shredder on that last batch
