Some of you may remember that last year I was the cookie mom for Princess’ Girl Scout troop. Well, guess what? I’m cookie mom again this year! AND this year Pixie is in Girl Scouts too, but in a different troop because she’s a Daisy. Before you ask, no, I did not volunteer to be cookie mom for two troops. I’m not that crazy. But I am now faced with the prospect of taking two little girls door-to-door through our neighborhood to sell Girl Scout cookies, and then delivering them again later on, which means I’m going to have to be careful not to get Pixie’s cookies mixed up with Princess’ cookies and vice versa, all while keeping track of cookies and money for Princess’ entire troop. So yeah, I am at least that crazy.

Anyway, moving on. You may have noticed that this week’s “Adventures of Cynical Woman” is showing up on Monday instead of it’s usual Tuesday spot. That’s because things are changing. I’m switching gears this year to devote a lot more time to art and cartooning, and part of doing so means tightening up the blog schedule. Instead of doing “Move It Mama Monday” on Mondays, I’ll be posting the web comic instead. On Wednesdays, I’ll post “Rats!” instead of “WIP Wednesday.” And on Fridays, I’ll continue to post “Flashback Friday,” which will be about artwork I’ve found in old sketchbooks of mine. There will be the occasional announcement post about any upcoming events like conventions, or about new products available in the Zazzle store, or about any stories I get published, etc. But otherwise I’m sticking to the cartoons and art posts for this year. My hope is that if I get fast enough with the cartoons, I’ll be able to post more of them as time goes by, but I’m going to have to work up to that. As for “Move It Mama Monday” and “WIP Wednesday,” those will no longer be regular features on the blog. I know some folks really enjoyed “Move It Mama Monday,” but I haven’t really had anything new to say about exercise and fitness in a while, and when I do, it’s usually something I’d rather say in the web comic anyway.

So, there will be changes here, starting this week. And you’ll see more stuff showing up in the store. And if you see me at conventions this year, like at Marscon this coming weekend, you may see some new stuff there as well. It’s all good. It’s part of a grand scheme, and I think this time next year, we’ll all be able to look back and realize this transition to more serious cartooning was the best thing ever!

  1. Who is the lady with the ponytail? Is this someone we’ve seen before?

  2. I’m guessing that’s me, shattering the peace as always ^_^

    Now Helen, just because you aren’t doing a “Move it Mama Monday” post anymore doesn’t get you out of coming to water aerobics! =P

  3. Nobilis,

    That’s Mich, my partner-in-crime. She’s the one who knits all the time. She has very graciously offered to be my brain during conventions and Girl Scout events, and is helping me plan and implement many new projects this year!

  4. Mich,

    Sorry! The Pixie had an eye appointment that morning, and I forgot to let you know. I’ll be there on Friday!
