Weekend Update

Things are still crazy trying to get into a new routine.  I think I got all of my exercise in last week, which is definitely a plus.  I also got that last bag of Good Will items out the door, so I was finally able to get my Declutter Challenge tracker updated.  Now that that's updated, I can see that I'm a little bit behind schedule.  To average one item a day, I should be up to 43 by now.

Thanks to:
Money for College Project for including me in their weekly roundup! I think the idea of posting a different scholarship every day is a great idea.  Where was that when I was still looking to apply?
