So yeah. This is my embarrassed face.

Short version: I genuinely cannot say when I'll be able to get back on schedule, but I'll try to make it soon.

Longer version: some of you may remember me mentioning my grandmother broke her hip just before Christmas. She was ninety and pretty frail, it ended up being the straw that broke the camel's back, she went into a cycle of deteriorating health that only ended when she died in mid-February. Which was at that point one of the better outcomes, but I've lived next to my grandparents since I was fifteen and I work for my parents. There wasn't a lot of my life that didn't get run through the meat grinder by this. Basically, I went to a Bad Place somewhere in late January and it's taken me a while to come out.

The good news is that I am breaking out of it, and y'all didn't see much of a hitch in service during that time because one of my tried-and-true methods for dealing when I'm in a Bad Place is to retreat into fantasyland, which in this case meant the comic. The bad news is that I let a bunch of other stuff spin out of control while I was in the Bad Place and now that I'm emerging I've kinda got a lot of shit to deal with. None of it's major, which is even more frustrating, really, because I keep underestimating the time it's going to take. It's like I'm playing a game of Whack-a-Mole with the Hydra, and every time I smack down a head labeled Housework or Filemaker Project Bugs or That Expensive Consultant You Were Supposed To Prep For two more pop up just as big, and that useless bugger I sent to look for a firebrand has stopped in at Starbucks for some pastries and a cuppa.

I'm also doing that thing run-down people do and getting sick, which is why the comic didn't happen on Friday, and the weather's not helping, and I let myself get short on scripts, and -- yeah. It is really hard for me to predict when I'll get things on track again.

I'm sorry, guys. I can't even say how this one snuck up on me, but it did. I will do my best, I swear.
