The funniest post I never wrote

In attempt to keep our life with child ever wild and spontaneous, we started a 1000 piece puzzle last night. I know, crazy, right? It's like we're kids again.

I'd like to say it was the desperation of being confined to the house after 8:00, that drove us to puzzle. But, the truth is, we did a few puzzles when we were married without child too. If you have a spare table that won't be attacked by children (which remains to be seen,) you should try it - it really does make for great quality time.

I enjoy poking fun at this new life we find ourselves in. I guess it's not so much new anymore - Evan is almost 18 months old, but there are still days it feels a little foreign. It's not like we went rock climbing or salsa dancing before we had Evan, but we could have. I suppose we could still do those things, but who has the time or energy?

Last night after putting Evan to bed, we got the puzzle out, and I instantly had a brilliant idea...I could live blog during the whole puzzling event. I was going to narrate the exciting happenings of finding corner pieces, finishing the edges, our lively conversation, what hip tune was playing on our Ipod, the Easter candy I was consuming...It was going to be terribly witty and positively hilarious.

But I didn't, not because I was worried you wouldn't be entertained, because trust me - you would have been glued to your screens. But, the idea of blogging with all of the world wide web, seemed to contradict a little with the quality time I was supposed to be spending with my husband.

So, please feel free to imagine the satirical genius of a post that would have been.

I'm kind of wishing you had live blogged it. I would like to see how you could make doing a puzzle funny!

Yep, I second that. I'd like to see 'puzzle making' made funny too.

Isn't it sorta pathetic that we're interestrd in this?

Sigh.
