Day 308/365 - From a Distance
Every so often, I really do have the best of intentions to make a prompt happen. But then other times, my kids decide they want math worksheets, and I sit down at the table with them, print some off and print a sudoku for myself. So, I'm counting today as an ignore the prompt day. I don't know that I could have done this one justice anyway.
Kid you not, this flipping puzzle took me two stinkin' days to finish. Not only did it take two days, I actually got to a full stop, and this was after I had to put place holder in every square.
I mean, I don't pretend to be the world's best at puzzles, but I usually don't have this much trouble. This one was just really difficult. I finally got to another stop and had to take a guess and work from there, keeping track where my guess started. I did this through making copies of where I was stopped and using different colors, to track. So, I guess in that way, I'm at least keeping with my colorful theme.
When all was said and done, I went through three color drafts. Then, if that wasn't punishment enough, I made one more copy to see if there were other solutions. Yeah. There were.
I may never do a sudoku again.
