I’ve never been particularly good with puzzles. Especially difficult for me are slide puzzles. I just can’t seem to figure them out and now I’m in the middle of one that’s giving me a real headache.
We have a fairly small three bedroom home. I wouldn’t call either Nick or me true packrats, but we have more stuff than we need – that’s something I hope to work on soon. Meanwhile, I’ve moved out of a classroom I inhabited for twenty-eight years. Now I only brought home four boxes of ‘stuff’ and most retired teachers will tell you that’s good. But it’s still four boxes and they were shoved into the smaller of the two ‘guest’ rooms. As I cleaned for the holidays more and more ‘stuff’ got slid into the room. There was some things that had to be slid over into the larger guest room.
But now my boys are coming in for our Christmas on Friday and I need to slide the puzzle into another direction. Stuff must slide from their room somewhere and the full smaller guest room piece of the puzzle must slide somewhere too since Mollie will be occupying that one.
I love having all my kids here, I just wonder how quickly we can build on?
