October through January


Does anyone else feel like January is a huge letdown? It’s probably a good time to have a birthday, because then you have something to look forward to. But for us, it feels like “go, go, go” from late August (when Halloween starts. It DOES. What?) to December and then in January it’s full stop.

This year I’m trying to remedy that by having my kid in two extracurricular activities. Last year I feel like we just say inside all winter and did nothing. I’ll probably be sick of driving my kid everywhere by the second week this year but hey, at least it’ll be something different.

Anyway, does anyone have any interesting New Year’s resolutions? I’m hoping to be better about posting Mom Comic each week. One of my resolutions is to do something kind of art thing every day. Maybe I work on a Mom Comic each day, maybe I do a painting, maybe I draw on a napkin, whatever. But to keep the momentum going and set time aside each day to create something. I also have some other projects in mind, and hopefully working each day will help them come to fruition. We’ll see! Happy New Year, everyone!

  1. Just come and love in New Zealand! January is mid-summer and summer = icecream. July (mid-winter) can be a bit depressing though…so I designed a new season called Sprinter (comes between Spring and Winter; “Sprinter” sounds better than “Wing”, I think) which has a compulsory party with tobogganing attached. Finally, I have instigated “half birthdays” where we all get to celebrate our birth twice a year. It means kids can put something they are whining for, I mean, want, on the their birthday list more easily, with more chance of getting it (or not, depending on their memory ability), and I don’t need to buy anything else at other times of the year. LOVE the comics by the way.

    • We’ve been to New Zealand and we LOVED it! So jealous that you live there. Are you on the North Island or the South Island? We only had a chance to visit the South Island when we were there but we would love to return. (It was our honeymoon.)
