On July 21st Kelly was kind enough to point out to me that I had the same item decluttered on Day 152 and Day 183 and I thought today was a good day to explain how thisÂ happened. I chose to explain this now because my husband I are flying out to Italy today for a month long vacation of exploring and soaking up the culture.
“So what does my vacation have to do with this duplication” you say, well I will tell you. From day 64 of my 365 less things challenge I have been trying to get ahead of myself by a month so that when this time came I would still have something to blog each day. I knew when I started blogging about my challenge on Day 64 that I would be going on vacation and wanted to continue during that month without a hitch. So I have to admit that for the last 177 days I have sometimes decluttered more than one thing a day to be able to achieve my goal.
As you know I take a photo of every item I declutter but that doesn’t mean that I use that photo on the day the item is decluttered. Usually I will put things aside for several days before I get the camera out and take several photos at once. Then I upload them to my husbands Flickr Page and use them sometimes to match with the post I am writing other times just randomly. As I use the photos I then add a description on Flickr noting the day the photo was used.
That is how I managed to use the same photo twice.Â I obviously forgot to add the description when I used the photo the first time. I have since added a different photo to Day 183.
All that being said. I have tried to put in place enough posts to keep you reading until I get home. Three lovely ladies have been kind enough to write guest posts for me so I hope you enjoy their contribution. Two of these ladies have blogs of their own and all three often leave thought provoking comments that inspire subject matterÂ for subsequent posts and I felt they had something to offer you. I have had to do a lot of shuffling to get everything in place so please forgive me if sometimes things don’t flow the way they should. It has been a hard slog trying to get this all organised before I leave.
I will be checking in at internet cafÃ©s and on my husband’s iPod Touch as often as possible so please keep sending in your comments I will answer them as often as I can. I will miss not talking to you all everyday but I know I am going to have a wonderful time “alone” with my husband for the next four weeks. It is our first long vacation without the kids so we are going to live it up. So arrivederci i miei amici I will talk to you soon.
