As you have noticed, there is a lack of both comic and sketchbook this week.  It’s the end of the quarter, which tends to be chaotic, my mother-in-law is visiting from Colorado all week, we’ve had sewage issues (talk about a crappy problem…), I was out camping with the Boy Scouts all weekend, and I’ve been working through some personal problems.  I was hoping to get a late post up this week (it is already inked, after all), but I think at this point it would be best if I spent time with family and gave myself a chance to get back on my feet. Fall break starts tomorrow; I intend to get a buffer of a couple comics under my belt.  I know you guys are dying to see elf-Nikki; come back Sunday!
