Can anyone believe it? It’s the end of yet another chapter for QFB. Who knew we would make it this far? And we are also only 5 pages from page 100 as well. I am feeling amazed that this is still going.

This comic took me two days to complete. I had the problem of knowing exactly how I wanted to end the chapter, but I was unsure of how to transition from Kleptin leaving the Green Leaf. Also, having Spam search his pockets turned out to be a bigger challenge than I had anticipated. Such a simple action and yet, it turned out to be baffling.

It’s been an interesting day at my place so far. It’s the kind of day that the mom’s in the comics experience and the reader always feels relieved that it’s only in the comics and not in real life. Yeah, I woke up to my son telling me that the toilet had an ‘accident’, which resulted in a big clean up affair. The dishes were piled up in two sinks because Spam has been canning vegetables from our garden, mounds of laundry that needed to be folded had sprouted up in the living room and I discovered a nest of little bugs trying to eat the dry goods in my cupboards. To top it all off, Dash missed his bus to school this afternoon and he would have missed school, but one of my neighbors had compassion on us and gave us a ride to school.

Can the day be done yet? Please?

Well, now is as good as a time as ever to post a rant. I promised to explain why I have not been ranting for a while. This do to my new role at work. This year I have taken on a few more responsibilities at work and with those responsibilities comes a lot of prep work. On top of all of the new prep work, I still had to perform all of my old duties as well. This means that I am now doing the work of 2 people. As you can imagine, this becomes stressful and unfortunately, this means that the ranting and sometimes the updating of the site suffers from my stress.

If you wish to yell at me for something that I am missing on this site please email me. You can find my email address on the contact us page.

As you can see, things are starting to calm down a little. *knock on wood* This means that I should find time to rant a little more often. Of course, the last time that I said that, I did not rant for 2 months. I hope that does not happen this time. :)

Have a happy Friday!!
