Determined not to get lazy...

Now that I'm done w/ my yearly hell of bookkeeping catchup and compiling tax totals..I'm determined to stay focused and not get lazy..

(my fat cat Crash in the laundry room)




Sure I said the same thing last year and the year before..but I think I've tortured myself enough to mean it this time. This year wasn't really fair though, with Cameron getting so ill it really left me devastated and nothing else really mattered other then taking care of him and trying to find out what could heal him.

And well we did spend a LOT of time puzzling!



Here are some finished products!



This one was donated to Cameron by Maui's woman's Harley Davidson club. Dallas, the president answer a craigs list request for cheap puzzles I could purchase to keep my sick kiddo busy. The guys loved it but it was a freaking nightmare! It was so hard! I've done hard puzzles but this one took us a couple of months. We had to take a break after cuz we were so fried. We've only done a couple tiny ones since like the done in 1/2 hour kind like the froggy below.

I love puzzles! I use to have a card table set up in my living room permanently for puzzles. It can be frustrating, but the sense of accomplishment is what I crave!

Crash just cracked my up when I saw his picture! Is that his bed?

kathy: You definitely get a sense of accomplishment when you finish a hard puzzle. I refuse to let one beat me..although we were very tempted to give up on this one. It seriously put me in a bad mood for the day at times lol!

Doreen: haha..no not his bed. Just a box that actually my other cat smaller cat likes. Hubby put it up there one day where he always gets in it every morning. This lazy crash found it and claimed it and hogs it every morning. The sun comes in the window on that side in the morning..so I'd say it's more their sun bath box then bed lol!

Laziness must be in the air. Yesterday I decided to read a book and the next thing I knew I was waking up!

N got too frustrated with our puzzle, so we put it away for now. I think it was too many pieces for his age. He didn't even want to work on it as a family. We pulled out some easier ones instead.

I love puzzles! Guess addicted would be a more appropriate term. Those seem like really hard ones. Now for being lazy! I've blog-lazy for the past few weeks. SO crazy!

I love the kitty pic!

We did so many puzzles as kids that I would dream in puzzle pieces, kind of. Like I couldn't turn my mind off.
