Well, so what's been happening.
Went to two Conventions, Anime Boston and Fanime. Both were a drain on the pocketbook, but great experiences that I wouldn't trade. However . . . I'll have to think long and hard about doing another convention in the near future.
The kids just finished up school today and their grades went up in all categories . . . I'm especially proud of Meri for getting nothing lower than a B+ (in math, which we are going to work on this summer). Doug needs serious work on his handwriting skills, but part of his problem is that he's completely ambidextrous and just hasn't picked a dominant hand yet. He'll use his pencil to draw with one hand and color it with the other . . . simultaneously. O.o So . . . either we make him pick a hand and stick to it . . . or force him to learn to write really well with BOTH hands XD Either way he's working on it this summer.
The comic is plugging away slowly but surely . . . I'm actually up to page 66! Just a little ways to go until 70, and that's remarkable to me. I'm also doing fairly good business with commissions . . . not fantastic, but it's a little trickle that helps.
Other than that . . . things seem to be going fairly well. Dan's managing and working on a regular basis, we've integrated the stuff we got from Oregon into the apartment . . . not really much else to report.
