Well, today has been a challenge.  All the time in the morning that I thought I would have got eaten up by RealLifeā„¢.  That being said, I have been able to make some progress in terms of creating a cohesive framework for my puzzle game.  I have a good idea of what it's going to look like and have a solid start in terms of getting it ready for testing.  Hopefully by tonight I'll have something working on screen.  That would be progress, after all.
