Too bad it didn't make me happy.
I turned my attention to other things and let it sit overnight. As I was getting ready for bed I had an idea for a different setting. The next morning I took the blocks off the wall, keeping them sorted by block type, and started laying out a Trip Around the World (sometimes also known as Sunshine and Shadow) design.
This seemed to be much easier for me to lay out. It was just organized enough for me to relax and have fun with the process.
