By day, a mild manner office supply jockey trying to make ends meat. By night, a comic artist also trying to make ends meat. But I like making comics more than selling office supplies.

So sorry about the unnecessarily long absence there! I had a LOT happen in that time frame. I was working an absolute ton, I hired someone new and had to train him, my inlaws came up for vacation, and I just got back into my regular schedule.
And I bring you... a sleeping montage.
I promise next week's update will be better.
2 PAGE UPDATE
This is page 2 of the 2 PAGE UPDATE.
What's this? TWO PAGES? What kind of witchcraft is this!
I wanted to test myself and see if I could do two pages a week and, as it appears, I can. I don't know if I'll be able to do this often because I can only produce so many buffers at a time. But these two pages went well together so I'll keep them together!
2 PAGE UPDATE
This is page 1 of 2 of the 2 PAGE UPDATE.
The drive from Pittsburgh to where this comic is based on in Pennsylvania is about 6 hours and I do not recommend it.
Kind of a boring page but things will start picking up in the next page.
See you guys next week!
Sorry this is running a little late! Had errands to run.
So we have a little moment between Chris and Zach... Everyone needs a moment sometimes, right?
Wow, rude much?
Now we're starting to see what the family left behind in Pittsburgh. Don't blame them for leaving and-
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING???
(tune in next week!)
An unwelcome guest appears. One of many it would seem.
So sad story, I was going to buy more of the paper I use to draw this comic on and it is almost NOWHERE to be found. I found one website that I'm hoping will have a good stash of it so I can buy a bunch when I get paid. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to find another kind of paper :<
There be monsters out there, Bree.
This week has been interesting so far. It's been busy, of course, but my husband was offered a new medical assist job and he's very excited for it. And I was able to post a comic page so I'm very excited for that!
See you all next week!
Well... I'm back! I know I'm a week late; work scheduled me on a Sunday and normally I NEVER work Sundays. So I wasn't able to upload this page. But I'm back now and I'm planning to continue my once a week posting every Sunday! I'm also working on another comic that isn't as intensive as this one and having it be more of a fun comic. Once I get it online, I'll post a link.
Thanks for being patient everyone!
Ok guys! Last page for a little bit; going on a hiatus so I can get some more buffers made and also take care of things at work. Since my promotion, I've been a bit busier than I anticipated but I still plan on updating as much as I can!

COMIC WILL RESUME JUNE 4th. Thanks again!
I am all about family unity and support. But don't think this is all going to be rainbows and unicorns. Even the happiest of families and the brightest of teens may have their ordeals.
But can I just say that Yuri is great and we should all love him?
He's that useful kind of guy who will lend you an egg or cup of sugar or exorcise the demons roaming around your neighborhood. You know, your friendly neighbor! Also we're learning a little more about our family... Wonder what other secrets are going to be revealed...
And today we get to meet Yuri, the sagely old man who lives next door and is just too darn sweet for his own good. He will be a pretty constant character in the comic!
I have two more pages of buffers and then I'll be taking a hiatus so more than likely the start of May will be when I go on my brake and probably will last until the end of May. But I'll be sure to let you all know!
I know I wanted to update with two pages this weekend but guess who suddenly was thrust into working 9 days straight? Yep.
I'm not sure when I'm going to have my mini hiatus yet but we'll see how this week goes! Thanks everyone for sticking with me!
You know that trope where the teen girl absolutely hates their new house and is a constant source of tension to the family? Yeah. That one. I hate that one.
Bree is excited as hell! Look at this place! It's freaking huge! I would be excited too!
Bree is finally here with her pupper Abbie and the fun shall ensue!

Thank you!
@Grellk: The flashback idea might work for some of the characters actually! But as for internal dialogue, I try to limit that because I have two official main characters and the sub characters do have their moments of being 'main' so I don't want to cause any confusion. I try to write it so that internal dialogue isn't necessary but I'm still playing with format! Whatever will work best in telling the story is what I'll do so that might happen as well!
This week has been pretty rough with work and car woes but it's always nice to know I can have this comic for me as a means to relax.
I've also set up a ko-fi account for donations. No pressure of course; I'll do this comic no matter what :)

I was in a pretty major car accident on Monday and I'm still super sore from it. Our car is totaled but no one was seriously hurt aside from myself. I have some massive bruises on my arm and chest but nothing broken and nothing long lasting. So my week has been nothing short of exciting and I STILL managed to get a page done! Talk about dedication!
I'm happy to start introducing the main players of this little story! It was getting lonesome with only Sadie but now we'll get to see more and more!
It's tough to work 40 hours a week and try and get a comic page out, yet here we are! I'm going to do my best to update once a week.
And we're going to get more characters! Starting with old hedge clipper guy!
House montage! And poor Sadie all alone in it.

Well... not for long.
