Why I've been ignoring you and the laundry...

Sorry about that but I have an excuse - really.  I bought a jigsaw puzzle.  Yes, I have been derailed from life by A PUZZLE.  How's that, you ask?

Well, not only have I been neglecting my online life, I've been neglecting my real life as well.  Case in point?  Today alone, I estimate that I've spent at least 6-7 hours working on the damn thing.  I finally had to quit because I'd given myself a headache from staring at it.

I should have known better.  I know how I am - I can easily get derailed by a challenge.  And this particular puzzle is a challenge.

At any rate, I'm about halfway done and have almost decided that this will be the puzzle that never gets finished.  There is too much sky and too many greens.  But, I know myself, and I will do whatever it takes to finish that damn thing.  I'm just hoping that will be sooner rather than later.  Because between you and me?  The laundry needs doing, errands need to be run, the house needs to be cleaned...you know, the list goes on....besides, I only have four more days of vacation that I'd like to spend doing something besides a puzzle.

  1. I expect that you will finish it, just because that's the way you are. Sometimes I get caught in a book like that and wish I could finish it and get on with my life! :-)
