I'm Puzzled Once Again

Updated on February 6, 2019

Stumped And Confused

I starting sweating

Scratching my head

Wondering and thinking real hard

My wife said why are you cursing

This is suppose to be fun

I had to think over my current situation

Was this more than I had bargained for

Maybe I never did puzzles as a kid

I thought I did

It all started a few weeks ago

With a passing thought

Lets buy a puzzle

We got so excited

We seen two puzzles that looked so cool

As we read the box

Our minds began to wonder

Thinking back I don't remember the last time I made a puzzle

As we walked around

Three more beautiful puzzles caught our eye

How do we choose just one

When each puzzle is so different

From 300 pieces to 1,000 pieces

My head is spinning faster than a childrens top

Of course we decided to try the 1,ooo piece puzzle first

As we laid the pieces out across our kitchen table

Three hours the first day

Two weeks later we pulled out the puzzle again

This time we were both at it for six hours

Starting to show some real impovement

We still have a long way to go

Are you a puzzle person?

When was the last time you made a puzzle?

      Gypsy Rose Lee Puzzles take time. We have every intention of finishing the puzzle. They take up room on our table and need time to continue where we left off. A little here and there. A puzzle is so much easier and a lot more fun when you have two people working on it together. I would be interested to see how your new craft projects come out? The coloring and drawing and rock painting. They sound like so much fun. Thank you for caring and commenting. Every day you share more excitement and joy. I love the way your life is coming together. Keep up the great work.

      Audrey Hunt My wife loves Thomas Kincaid's work. We also saw some of his puzzles they looked very difficult. So we passed up on them for now. I have learned that the patience I had seemed to fade real fast. I actually starting counting back from 100 to calm down. I was taking it too seriously. I just thought I was instantly able to put things together. I had another thing coming. I am now more like the tortoise going slow and taking my time. Thanks so much for reading and sharing your story. You give me new meaning to my own thoughts and progress. Have a good night.

      Yancosky I know exactly what you mean. After the first hour and things weren't moving along as fast as I hoped, I was starting to get aggravated. We found the outside pieces for the frame but I was still struggling to make them connect. This was the easy part. My wife persisted and prevailed to make it work. It took two weeks before we even looked at the puzzle again. Thank you so much for reading and connecting on so many levels. Have a lovely night.

      My late husband and I once tried to put a puzzle together. We got almost to the end and something interrupted us and after that it never got finished. Now I am into creative things like coloring and drawing and when I finally put aside special time for it I am ready for rock painting. Hope you get that puzzle done.

      I was given a puzzle for Christmas - a lovely Thomas Kincaid. It took me an hour to find 2 pieces that would fit. :) I'm learning a new level of patience. Your poem says it all! Thank you, my friend.

      I like puzzles, but only putting together the frame, then I leave it for the next year, or so, planning to “get back to it”. The only reason I eventually get back to it is to put it away back in its box. Ha haha. So yes, I enjoy puzzles, but only the frame part.
