Because a picture is worth a thousand words there are several in this post. Around this time each year it hits me like a ton of bricks. It is like the veil is lifted from my eyes and they really see the little odds and ends that have become a part of my decorating repertoire. You can see a few odds and ends of clutter on the counters. Nothing too major, cell phone chargers, cereal from breakfast, bananas that we forgot to eat again, some sippy cups and a telephone.
