Yes, this actually happened. No, I did not kill the small child. And yes, I am counting this as 4 points for PerCaDraMo because I have a bum knee and it's slowing everything down!!! So there!

I have no idea how Pixie managed to spill that much water out of the tub, but when I went screaming upstaris, there was more bath water on the floor than in the tub. In fact, there was almost more bath water in my yarn than in the tub. Almost, but fortunately I was able to move very fast in spite of my screwed-up knee. Frighteningly fast.

Speaking of my knee, I found out on Friday that I tore both the meniscus cartilage and the ACL in my right knee. So I will be having surgery in two weeks and then I will be on crutches probably for… Weeks? I dunno.

But before the surgery, I'm going to get up into the office and scan in plenty of Rats! comics as well as plenty of art for the Very Scary Art website so I can get back to posting on a regular basis.

Anyway, that's what's going on around here.

  1. Sorry to hear about your knee, Helen. Don’t forget the PT afterward so you’ll be able to move good and keep up with the kiddos!

  2. Mark,

    Sorry it took me so long to reply to your comments! I’m finally able to get around enough that I’m willing to climb the second set of steps to get up to my office, so now I can handle things like website upkeep and maintenance.

    I’m a month into physical therapy now, and things have been progressing well, but physical therapy is exhausting! It lasts about an hour and a half, and afterwards I just want to sleep for the rest of the day. I’m sure I’ll get better before too much longer. Thanks for the well wishes!
