Back to our regularly scheduled TOGM!

Guest comics are kind of like when June gives me lunch meat for my lunches. It's good, but it's not PB&J.. The comfort of my favourite foods outweigh the fact that I do actually like lunch meats quite a bit (Especially with FAAAAR too much Miracle Whip.. If people wouldn't look at me funny, I'd probably eat that crap like yogurt..)

So Beth's tough, but it seems that some people get away with lots of stuff on her... These particular incidents are supposed to seem out of character for her... She's not perfect, she's not impenetrable... But I think that it fits in her character as I see it, which, granted, is a perspective a bit different than the readers...

So, just trust me that while this feels like an aberration, it's meant to, and it's a part of her character, not a failing on my part to stay true to her tough persona.

On house news... Man, this has been one hell of a crash course!! Thankfully, we've had a lot of support during the whole process.. Packing, moving, and now with getting settled in... My father came by today and help me set up an electric thermostat for our central air / heating system... June's parents helped us yesterday, and may be coming by again later this week.. So fun stuff ahead!

Oh, and I worked as the backup driver at my work for the first time since I recently got my military driving license. It was verrry slow, but the car I got to drive was nice :)

And I'll wrap it up there, hope you guys have a great week, and we'll see you on Thursday!

Hope you guys are happy to see us back, as we are happy to be back! I'm still pretty wiped from moving and all that. I still have a million boxes to open, but I feel that we've settled in ok. One thing James forgot to mention that I am happy about is, he has 3 months of steady day shift! This is great news.

The next TOGM was written by me, I hope ya'll will enjoy it. I should get to drawing that up tomorrow.

Any way, toodles!

Might I suggest a shotgun to protect your home with? :)

togm. :)

Hope moving went well for you!

(NOTE: Yes, shotguns are a necessity; everyone needs at least one).

@alparrott - Thanks yet again.. I'm loving this place... It may just be me trying to feel better about the impending debt and unending mortgage and all that fun stuff, but I think I even sleep better here!

@DreamSanguine - It's good to be back!

@JimiRaffety - It's going slowly but surely. We're not in a rush to unpack everything, but it's going along :D And we're glad to be doing TOGM again. It was weird not doing it for a week, even though I'm glad in retrospect that we took it off. It was a very busy week..

@Micheal - We live in Canada ;) We'll have to settle for a gigantor dog.

@MarshmallowGherkin - About as well as it could have. My only complaint was the drink situation... I didn't get as much gatorade as I wanted because I wasn't buying anything else at Costco, so it wasn't worth the money to drive out and back.. We got the keys to the house ridiculously early, thanks to some good lawyering, and so rather than ending at like 9pm with a 4 hour wait between loading and unloading, we got the keys in the middle of loading, so I finished at 4pm.

Annnnnd now we're in a muuuuch better house! So moving went AWESOME for us :D

John could've said, "I know my way around a kitchen, I could help. Now where do you keep the Draino?" :)
