Three Weeks of Puzzling Fun

It's been three weeks since Derek started school, and I'm so pleased to report that each day it has gotten a little easier than the previous time.  He still likes me to stay with him for a few minutes or "10 and 5 minutes" as he likes to say.  LOL  I usually sneak out after just a few minutes and he seems to be doing okay with that. So, each day I have been getting in at least 45 minutes to an hour or so.  Then, I did get two nights last week where I was able to work on it for several hours straight as Randy was in Wichita, KS for the week on a business trip.  All in all a great week for puzzling! Over the weekend, I cleaned up my table and my foam boards so that I can get a true evaluation of the amount of work I have left to do for this section.  Based on this,
I am guesstimating that I have about 2,000 pieces left - give or take a couple hundred. I also took a tip from one of the members of the Flickr Big Jigsaw Puzzles group that I belong to, and ordered some foam floor tiles to use as "working boards" for the puzzle.  The texture of the foam mats will keep the pieces from sliding around too much.  I am looking forward to trying them out this week.
