For years, I have teased my wife about a habit I have noticed when we are setting out seasonal decorations. It happened at the apartment where we first cohabitated, it happens at our house now. It happened long before our children were in the picture. She cannot leave anything that I put in place stay where I put it. I put it on the left of a shelf, she moves it to the right. I put it on the wall-shelf, she puts it on the Victrola.
I had to go out for work in the afternoon today, but I set the kids on a path of chaos this morning before I left. My daughter was excited to put out fall decorations. I told her to watch because Mommy moves every decoration that I set out. Then a light bulb went off in my head.
I told her to get a white board for herself, and a white board for her brother, and mark down a point every time they set out a decoration and mommy moves it.
The winner gets to move one of the decorations that Mommy places!
Apparently shenanigans ensued while I was at work. I think it will be a new holiday/seasonal event.
Do you have someone in the house that moves decorations?
I won’t get preachy here other than to say stay informed, follow the best practices, and wash your damn hands. I have posted plenty of that on Facebook.
Print, solve, & re-post!
Print it & complete with a pen, pencil, crayon, marker, or whatever. Then take a photo & post it on your favorite social media site, and tag me; @AiXeLsyD13(Twitter & Instagram)
You can even download it & use a note app or one like PicsArt on your phone to complete the maze, then share it too. Share it on Pinterest. Lots of people are looking for stuff to do right now. I’d love to see how far this (or any of my mazes) can go.
Here’s some stuff I posted on Instagram but not really here;
I won’t get into the COVID-19 / Novel Coronavirus outbreak here, but if you’re bored in quarantine… remember you can do all of my mazes. It’d be cool if you finished one, posted on the social media platform of your choice & tagged me.
I need to put a maze on a guitar. I need to update photos of my collection. I want to catalog them here since the sites I have found to do it don’t really suit my needs. Add that to the endless list of unnecessary projects to be completed “someday.”

We have gotten some great feedback so far, and I dig it!
I really appreciate Mike helping take my mazes to something other than doodles on paper piling up here at the house, or floating out there in the cyberspace ether unnoticed. Ha ha. I am unable to determine the correct path on how to go about making a book and if there would even be an audience for just mazes. I’m really not into making a theme other than “here are some mazes” outside the occasional inspiration for something else that’s goofy. (Or on something that’s goofy.)
Well. They’re not all Halloween themed. But they’re all mazes. I messed around with some of them in PicsArt and Instagram.
Try a few. Get the solutions on your social media of choice. Tag me in it. I’m always @AiXeLsyD13 unless someone is being a butthole and takes it first for some reason even though it’s my handle across all platforms.
Combine two albums you dig into one… just like some record executive or intern did once upon a time with Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II, combining the “best” tracks of each to make one pointless album.
I would suggest that you do two albums. It can be different artists or the same.
If you want to be crazy try to keep the run time to a “real” album length. I think Records hold 44 minutes of music and CD’s 74 or so? About an hour would be good.
You can keep the artists separate like a split, or mix it all up.
Hell, you can combine 3 or more albums. I am a fan of anarchy. Just play. Here in the comments, or online. Use PicsArt or something similar to make an album cover if so inclined.
You can explain why you chose the tracks, or just let the mix speak for itself.
