The short version of the story is that I spent two weeks ago preparing for a visit by my brother-in-law and sister-in-law-in-law, their adorable children, and my father-in-law. This past week was spent visiting with the aforementioned, in between visiting my mom, who had also come to town. The week of visiting was delightful, but it left me exhausted, and terribly sunburnt (We live very close to the beach, but I don’t think I’ve spent as much time there in the past two years as I did over the past four days)

I used up my two weeks of buffer, and only had one day left to make a comic. And I was definitely out of practice, that picture of Weed up there took me three attempts.
