I can’t tell you how much better I feel now that the missing piece has been found! Thank goodness! I was very upset with myself and certain it had been vacuumed up and thrown away, or chewed to a pulp by my beloved Boston Terrier, I am so happy I was wrong 🙂 The little guy was hiding under the sheets of paper I use in the bottom of my trays. I’m not sure what made me go through all my empty trays, but I’m so glad I did!
I was hanging out with my mom today, which is our usual Friday ritual, so progress was extremely limited for the day. I was only able to add about 70 pieces; not only was I away from home most of the day, but progress has slowed greatly. I’m left with dark/solid colors, and the twinklies. There isn’t really a section of the puzzle that I can pick out and put together by color, so I am searching for pieces one at a time for the most part. It’s much more time consuming, but I know I will get there eventually. On the plus side, the inside of the puzzle is finally finished. All that is left is filling in the dark blue sections between the border and the filmstrip, and the two twinkly sides.
My mood has also improved some, which is most likely a combination of being able to get out of the house and spend time with mom, and also finding my prodigal piece. So even though the pieces added are taking more time than usual, it isn’t frustrating me as much as earlier in the week. Good news on all fronts!
Hope all is well with you and yours, and I hope you all find time in your day to play. Puzzles, board games, cards, video games, online games, etc. We all deserve a little play time!
