Project 366: Day 180

Have you noticed the past couple of Project 366 posts were numbered incorrectly? My apologies for any confusion I may have caused to those of you who use my Project 366 to help keep track of your days. You did not really get to live Day 178 twice, and you did not miss Day 179. *sigh*
