Another of my sisters left me a comment offering to help me clean it up. Thanks, Karen, but I got myself into the mess and I can dig my way out. In fact, I have been digging all week! I finally gave in and started cleaning when it took me forever to find all of the items I needed to take with me to class last week.
It has been a week long effort, but I think I am now ready to get back to business...after I finish with the honey do list my husband gave me.
