This week has been one of those weeks that, were it to be printed on a piece of graph paper, looks mostly like a trough. I realize the waves are perpetual and that there are as many peaks as there are troughs but this has definitely been a trough week. It culminated in a family outing gone bad yesterday and an ER visit at 2 in the morning with a croupy three year old who woke sounding much like an angry donkey. He is doing much better today and I feel we, as a family, are possibly about to crest a wave once again. I look forward to being out of the trough.

Though my spirit can be tampered with during weeks like these, my sense of humor is never ever gone. What would I do if it was? I shudder to think of it. My kids and I pulled out the comics we have made using Comic Life, which came pre-installed in our computer, using our own pictures. This is always something that is good for a nice restorative belly laugh. So I decided that I needed to pass along some of the laughs. I normally have the kids’ actual names in these stories but have changed them for public consumption.

I hope you get a good laugh out of some of these. As always, click to enlarge. This should provide you with a good 10 to 15 minutes of wasted time! We all need our daily supplement of that.

  1. I hope that this week has more peaks for you & your family. I’m glad your son is doing better, poor baby. (I know he’s not a baby but when they don’t feel good they really are right?) Those are fun looking comics!
