So, I did it. I finally changed my comic character’s hair to blonde/grey. Now I feel better. It was really bothering me. Like, WAY more than it should have bothered me. To the point that I could not even comic. I think it was because I felt like if I posted new comics with my black-haired character, I was not being authentic. Sounds weird and psychotic, I know. But this comic is about my real life. So authenticity is very important to me.

The truth is, I was never really a “real” black-haired beauty. I am a true dirty blonde (heheh). A year or so ago, my grey took over. So I decided to embrace it. I am a grandmother, after all. So now I just get highlights and let the wisdom highlights shine through! =)

Business is still really freakin’ busy and hard and exhausting. (I know, I know… “it’s a good problem to have”… and #firstworldproblems, right?) And I’m not even close to the point where I can just pay people to do all the work for me, the way that I want them to do it.  So I don’t know how much I will be able to comic and blog, but I’m going to make an honest effort. I’ve missed you all so much! I’ve missed creating and writing and making people laugh.

Loverman is doing pretty well, all things considered. He still has Graft vs Host Disease (a complication of the stem cell transplant), which really sucks. But the main thing is that he is still alive and cancer free. =)

Remember when I said I was back? In April 2017? Yeah well, I am back now…for real. (Hopefully)

And for my next trick, I will dazzle y’all with the illusion that I actually have my shit together.

Thanks for stopping by! T <3
