Last week, in my boredom or restlessness one afternoon, I pulled out a puzzle that my friend Jessica had let me borrow for Disciple Now. I plopped a poster board down on the floor (because heavens knows we don't have a table yet, and no, mom, I don't want the cardboard table as my dining room table, I've got more pride than that, um, maybe,) and poured out the pieces. I quickly got the perimeter of the puzzle completed and set about sorting the other pieces into color groups.
Like, 2 hours later, I still had only gotten about half way through (of sorting,) and I was having new found difficulties telling the difference between the colors.
Ian joined in and about half an hour later exclaimed that this puzzle "was crap!"
Somehow, though, we have persisted, and are making some head way on it. We even spent our Friday night working on it.
How cool are we?
Don't judge though.
You'd have a tough time with this puzzle as well. It's a photomosaic puzzle. Which means the entire pictures is made up of THOUSANDS of eensy weinsy tiny pictures, so there is actually no hard cut lines or color areas. It's very difficult, trust me.
And if you don't believe me, believe my mom. It took us 2 months one time to do one of these things!
