I was planning on trying to finish my secondary puzzle today, but I got caught up in the big one, things started falling into place 🙂 and I didn’t want to halt any forward progress. I decided to start with whatever yellow/ish pieces were left, and then worked on light green and whatever else popped out at me. I have pieces pulled to work on the rest of the green tomorrow. It’s difficult to work on the puzzle for any length of time, as I am unable to sit or stand for more than a few minutes but I’m trying to make the best of it and do what I can. I’m proud of what I got done today!
I wonder how many people have purchased this puzzle worldwide. It would be interesting to find out exactly how many units Ravensburger has sold. I definitely won’t be the first to finish it, but I’m not doing this competitively, it’s for fun and a sense of accomplishment. It will be months and months before I’m done, but I’m looking forward to each section of the puzzle. Even just finishing the first section will be a super accomplishment – it will be twice as many pieces as the largest puzzle I’ve ever done.
I almost feel like I should have the soundtracks to each of the movies and listen to the songs while I work on each section. It would be fun at first but would probably become repetitive very quickly. Not unlike having little children at home and watching the same movie over and over, or listening to the same song over and over again. Ok, now that I actually wrote that down, I’ve talked myself out of it – or at least out of listening to the songs the whole time. Perhaps while I’m in the home stretch and on my last day or so it would be fun to hear all the songs again. There’s a job for one of my boys, finding me the soundtracks to put on my phone or computer. It also makes me want to work on The Jungle Book next, because that’s the best soundtrack in my opinion. It’s the one I remember most from my childhood, we used to listen to the songs on an 8 track tape in our van. Yikes! I’ve totally dated myself with that last sentence 😮
