In which I apparently smoke crack...

Taking a break from my lazy blogging series (but don't worry, shit I bought is coming soon!) to let you know that I have apparently lost touch with reality, because I thought this looked like a good idea.
That is a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle. OF BEADS. For real. Also? My 12-year-old child? Has never done a jigsaw puzzle. Lazy mother, who?

We got the pieces laid out on the dining room table...

And started assembling on the card table.

And within about, oh, let's say seven minutes, Carlie was bored.

To which I say, BORED MY ASS. We will complete this puzzle if it's the last thing we do. Come hell or high water, through blood shed and tears... VICTORY WILL BE MINE.

PS: I have apparently lost my fucking mind. Wheeeeee!

UPDATE: I am going to post a picture of our progress every day. Wherein "every day" = until someone dies because of this f*ing puzzle. I've even created a separate page for tracking puzzle progress here, in the tabs above.

I have to tell you, hon, that I think you may have lost your ever-loving mind.

Let me know how that puzzle works out!

Put the pieces away.

Wait one month.

Take a photograph of the front of the box.

Post the photograph on your blog with the caption, "Finished!"

We will all be very impressed and you'll be able to use your dining room table for things like eating and you won't be stepping on beads until 2027.

P.S. I did the same thing with Laura and a 1000-piece penguin puzzle. Just wait until your MIL comes over and tries to work on it with you. It's the most annoying part of the whole process.

Penguins? WTF? I don't know why either.

Also, see how I'm commenting in text format? Each thought is a new entry.

I'll go away now.

My Mom & sister have puzzles going because it's fun. So they say.

Come. Buy one with us.

It's this Borg-ish family thing.

But for the life of me I find them utterly unappealing. lazy mother, me will be sending my urchins over to you for proper puzzle upbringing.
