All right, I'll warn you right now. It's late. I've been sorting through stuff all day. I'm exhausted and a little bit punchy.
I tackled my pile of shoes today. I figured that while I was handling the difficult stuff, like books, I might as well do the really tough job. I love shoes, you see - all kinds of shoes, and I feel that the 22 pairs I started out with today barely scratch the surface of footwear:

And now, miracle of miracles, the shoes actually all fit on our entryway shelves.
