Well done - however, I've not heard of the initial part of the saying (sometimes you need to...) which made it more difficult. I got the two steps forward part...

that's tricky.

Now that one was really difficult...I got part but couldn't put it all together. My way was really strange and sounded like I should be living on Mars or in a far, far away galaxy....

I got the first part as "time and time again". Got the knead, but didn't have the patience for the last part (maybe because I'm supposed to be doing other things!!!)

Hahaha Scihead... don'tcha just love Braingle for that! Thanks for stopping by anway.

I got about half there but never stepped back so I could solve it completely .. I guess your puzzle offers some good advice I really kneaded! Actually, I need the dough more but that's another story

Thanks Zona. Isn't it fascinating that two words relating to bread also relate to money... dough and bread as per breadwinner. We all knead a bit of that dough to surive - does that make us all bakers?

Very good. A hint would be helpful though. That was quite challenging.

Thanks Michelle... yeah, maybe I should have thrown a hint into this one.

Very good. I too started with "time and time again", and didn't get the whole thing without looking. Well done!

Once I got the beginning it was quite easy.

That was very very clever! I love rebuses, especially challenging ones. I actually got some of it, but to tell the truth, I've never heard the phrase said that way, so I never would have thought that was the solution. Is that the way you've heard it? I've always heard it like "How's the project going?", "Well, I feel like I'm taking two steps forward and one step back, but blah blah blah...".

The way it is here, it's like advice instead of almost a "complaint". But maybe it is used both ways, and I've just never heard this way before. The pet backwards part is very clever! It could still be done the way I've heard it, just "step step word word word word and pets." would be one way, not the only way.

Anyway, thanks for the challenge!

I have to agree with Zonahobo's 7/22/05 comment. Great rebus. Thanks for posting.

Too tough for me. I got the sometime you need to take, then was thrown off by 'pets' and couldn't finish it off. Good one

I got time and time again, and that was it. Lost an hours sleep last night, that's my story and I'm sticking to it !
gaylewolfAus*
Mar 09, 2008

I read it as "time and time again" too - loved your comment AuntieSis!

challenging rebus - I'm finally figuring out how to figure these out! (poor grammar? well I lost an hour of sleep last night too)

Woke up to bright sunshine!

Time and time again you need to take your dog for a walk.
I'm usually good at these.

I had part of it right. But I was so confused I lost my way period. Thanks for posting, it's fun learning new things.

Thanks so much for the comments. I very much enjoyed creating this one and have enjoyed everyones creative comments just as much

Like others, I, too, figured the first part of the phrase was "time and time again". To clue your readers more to the idea of "sum" or "some" times, perhaps it would help if you added the equals sign (=) after the second time.
gaylewolfAus*
Mar 09, 2011

Two years later, I STILL didn't get it
but I really liked it - clever!

What I REALLY liked were your responses to the comments, Dsquared!
