Puzzlin’

We picked up a Charley Harper puzzle (Mystery of the Missing Migrants) sometime before Christmas, when times were innocent and I thought the idea of putting together a puzzle actually sounded “fun.” Cut to a a few weeks later and our puzzlin’ adventure began.

Hours and days (and a bit of bickering, if I’m to be completely honest) started to pass by, the puzzle taunting us at every piece. It would sit for a day or two, just staring at us as we watched television. It would scream “No liquids!” if we wanted to put a glass down. It became a full time job. But slowly, bird by bird, star by star, the chaos actually began to look like something.

A full week later and 1,000 pieces of torture under our belts, the puzzle was completed. And guess what? I could not bare the thought of tearing down of fruits of labor and had to frame the damn thing.

So for now, it will sit atop the mantle (another thorn in my side) and remind me to never pick up a puzzle again.

PS: What do you think of the new pillows? I’m starting to think the big one looks like a Cosby sweater. Just me?
