My new website is up and running! Yes, we have our very own domain name now and a fully functioning website! I still need to tweak some things for better efficiency on the website, but other than that, thunderbirds are go! check it out http://www.twoxtwo.ca I'm posting the comics and blogging there, and come September that will be the exclusive source for the comic. Well, I already blogged over there, and I don't have much else to say, so read it on the website! WOO!

I should start by saying that it's been a few years since I've heard a telemarketer ask for "the man of the house", but the last time I heard it I was mildly offended. Is my wife incapable of making decisions for us? Is she to clouded by her female emotions to make an informed choice? Truth be told, Sarah handles most of our finances anyways as I am terrible at math and budgets. I can do budgets for work and stuff, but when it comes to a personal budget I just lack that ability.
This is one of the few comics I've done that hasn't actually happened. Although, when Sarah did her pregnancy test I was playing Halo, and apparently when she came out of the bathroom her thought was "really? can I handle another one of these?" lol. Jokes on her, we had twins, ha ha. The boys love video games too; they can't play them obviously, what with being only 7 months old at this point. But they love playing with the controller, and they love watching the screen. I've had to stop playing video games when they are in the room because I don't want them exposed to that kind of violence (but I'm okay exposing myself to it? hmmm....)
Great news! Soon this blog will be moving to its very own domain! In the next week or so we should be up and running at twoxtwo.ca I've registered the domain and found a web host, so all I need to do now is design the site and we're good to go. Mind you I'm tech impaired and don't know the first thing about designing websites... I'm sure it will be fine, lol.
Any way, should have gone to bed an hour ago. Hope you enjoyed todays comic! I will post another on Friday and two next week as well to make up for my lack of comics the past few weeks. Ciao!

I did it! I can't believe it. Amongst all the craziness that happened this week I still got 2 comics out. I hope you enjoy this one. Next week I will be up at camp so I wont be able to post a comic, but I will post 2 again the week after.
So... yeah... this actually happened. In my defense I don't think I had slept in about 45 hours by this point. The boys were still pretty new and just back from the hospital, so I still didn't know what I was doing (I still don't know what I'm doing, lol). I was able to calm him down by rocking him back and forth, and eventually his bottle warmed up and I could give it to him. ...poor kid...
Exciting news! I am working on shifting this operation to an actual domain name! this way I will have a little more control over how the site looks and the different features that are available on it. I will keep you posted as development happens, and I hope to have it up and running in the fall.
Well, I have another busy day today so I will leave you with that!
grace and peace,

Our kids love the bath. As soon as you lay them down on the towel on the bathroom floor to get them ready they start giggling. I've heard some parents say their kids hate the bath. I'm glad our kids like it, I would just prefer it if they didn't practice Water-Bending while I'm trying to bathe them (obscure reference! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAEfcTShZxQ) It is pretty common for whoever is bathing them to wind up completely soaked by the end of the bath.
I feel like I upped my art work in this strip. The reason being is I always had an easy out when drawing Sarah. What I mean to say is, I can't draw hands. And so, when she was pregnant, her hands were always on her tummy, around the bottom, where finger details didn't matter. Now that she is not pregnant any more, she has to have hands! so this strip I actually stick personned and blocked out positions and did some perspective yadda-yadda-yadda. Anyway, I'm fairly happy with how it looks, so I might keep it up.
I realize I said I would post 2 comics this week like I did last week, but a last minute scheduling change happened in the preaching schedule at church and it looks like I'm up :) I haven't had a ton of time. It is unlikely that I will have the next comic up before I leave for camp, but who knows, you might get a black and white one :)
anyway, so much to do, so little time. That's all for me for now. Ciao.
