PUZZLED


A couple posts back, I mentioned that M and I went garage-saling. We bought this ridiculous puzzle that had 1,000 pieces. Buying from a garage sale means there is no guarantee that all the pieces are in the box, I told M; but she insisted that we buy one. So...her and I tried and spent lots of time on the puzzle. When C and T returned home from girls camp, C wanted to try putting the puzzle together. So...as the week has progressed, we continued to work on our puzzle. Infact, it was therapeutic to walk away from my master's homework and continue with the puzzle. Yesterday we finished the puzzle, and to my amazement every piece was in the puzzle! It's our little trophy, and it helped keep the girls entertained away from the computer and TV.

Ugh, that does NOT look relaxing to me.... it's too hard on my brain. But the end result is really cool, and the time spent together is priceless!

happy belated anniversary!

Ok Janet, here they come! I'm putting them on a plane to you today! I'm really bummed because I was hoping to be visiting you this week in Arizona, but I just didn't get on the ball about it.

Ugh...my DH tried to get me to do a puzzle with him. ADD + puzzles do NOT mix. He ended up finishing it on his own!
