Missed yet another Killer Sudoku today. I was travelling home from Portugal, which took about 8 hours in total door to door and I had some things to catch up on when I got home. So I did my usual trick of brain turning to mush when I tried to solve the killer with about an hour to go to the deadline. Not sure why this nearly always happens, but I have to stop letting it annoy me so much! [cursing]

what's one puzzle or two in the grand scheme of life....I used to get upset when I either missed a puzzle or could not get one that I thought I should be able to solve......I guess age is giving me s slightly different view of missing a puzzle [smile] ......I envy your ability to travel [sad]

That is why I was so mad at myself two weeks or so ago when I missed the Sudoku.

We are not traveling this year and I could have been one of the people in the top spot this year.
we are planning on traveling next year. Keeping our fingers crossed.

To be honest, the compulsion to complete all the daily puzzles within the time permitted is a self imposed restriction that should not feature so highly in one’s list of priorities.

It’s up there with having a Fitbit and feeling that you absolutely must do 10,000 steps every day, no matter what. And yes, I have a Fitbit and have allowed that target to become another daily chore.

I think if I wasn’t retired, I would not have the luxury of being able to allow such things to become a priority. And I guess both objectives could be seen as something that’s potentially beneficial - one to ensure that the mind remains active, the other the body. But only if it doesn’t become an obsession.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I still have 1,800 steps to complete before midnight! [scared] [wink] :-)
