Where did I go? Well, life got busy. The job I had in Hyde Park meant I commuted 3+ hours a day... and that left little precious time for fun projects. Then I decided to go back to graduate school... and if I thought I was busy before, classes and internships and work and homework really did a good job of squeezing out any last remaining free moments.
Now, I'm graduated with my MSW! In between job searching and cover letter-writing, I thought I'd keep myself somewhat sane and find some fun things to do. Daily walks, a sleepover with my nephew, food and drinks with friends, visitors, a little golf, pulling out my french horn again, reading for pleasure and some volunteering here and there has kept me occupied. Then I remembered the Deck of Goals and thought I'd pick up where I left off...
My dear friend Matt (also recent MSW grad) and I had an unemployed-persons brunch this week, and I gave him the 'honor' of selecting this week's card. When I last packed up the deck, I failed to separate cards I'd already done from ones I needed to do, so he picked 2 that I'd already accomplished. Third time's the charm!
|One last piece to go!|
To be honest, I started this puzzle late April... and after one night of effort, it'd been sitting on my kitchen table. I was actually relieved the card was selected this week, 'cause I've got friends coming to visit with their toddler in a week-ish and thought I should probably put it up before they arrive. I'm glad I had a reason to finish it before it went back into its box!
Anyway, verdict: I'm kind of a puzzle fan. They're a challenge and relaxing all at the same time. It's a good thing they get a thumbs-up from me because I got a new puzzle for graduation! :)
