Sudoku addict

I'm a addict. Isn't that the first step to climb. Check, done with that. What's the next step and where do they take me?? Hummm. Anyway, my friend Julie got me hooked and if you haven't heard of it yet...now's your chance. Instead of crossword puzzles to pass the time try Sudoku. It's a Japanese puzzle game and the rules are simple. It's a 9 by 9 grid and in each square you need to get the number 1 through 9 and the same for each row and column. NO adding them together...just making sure that each number of 1 through 9 is there with no duplicates. Easy ones will give you some numbers to start with and you can build from there. It's worth taking a look at if you like a little challenge and have time to kill here and there. Like I said though, I'm an addict and for a $1 at your local discount store...you can get a cheap thrill too. But I'm already on the first step to recovery; just don't know where these steps are taking me.

I may not be addicted to that game, but I sure know the bondage of being addicted to things! A few years ago, I got myself hooked on Yahoo Euchre. I couldn't stop playing. It was really hard to break myself away, until it dawned on me that I would start first thing in the morning, and around 11:30, my daughter (then in diapers) came running to me with a really soggy MORNING diaper wanting her BREAKFAST. Seriously, that's just a problem. Thank God my kids can all change their own shorts and fix their own bowl of cereal now.
