So for the most part I try to keep the comic light-hearted, but I also do want it to represent what living abroad is like and this is one of the drawbacks.  If I were home, I’d be helping Dad around the house, but instead I’m stuck here.  The good news is that my grandmother is out of the hospital and Dad’s surgery is pretty routine (I think they do something like 20 a day); it’s just hard not to be there.

On a positive note, Nathan makes an appearance! I’ve known Nathan since elementary school and we chat often. Also, can you tell my mom likes purple?
