On Friday of this last week I was talking to my kids on the bus and on the elementary route, one young boy asked; "Does Miss Shannon ever steal any food from you?" To which I responded: "All the time! ESPECIALLY if t's CHOCOLATE!" "Coco Pebbles, she always steals my Coco Pebbles." He then asked "How do you get her to stop?" to which I responded; "Well, you either get real good at hiding them or..." "I can't hide them," he stated "everyone is taller than me!" "Well, what I do, I spit in my cereal so she won't take it." After the group "EEEEW!" the young boy asked; "What does Miss Shannon do after you do that?" I said; "She looks deep into my eyes and loving says...'I'm gonna throat punch for being gross.'" and we all laughed.
Fast forward to Monday morning, I show up to pick up this young man at the scheduled time, who is now hiding something behind his back, it's VERY obvious. As he gets on the bus, he hands me... a large box of Coco Pebbles that they bought for me over the weekend.The young man said to me; "There, now you can have your own box." I laughed so hard I couldn't breath, thanks guys, I needed that.
As a "thank you" for what they did for me, I drew them a little note. You can see the picture below. Below that is the video of me drawing the cartoon speeded up to 8x its normal speed.
May all of you have a day filled with Coco Pebbles!
I realize that I normally give an update Sundays but yesterday I got a chance to spend the afternoon with an trusted friend and we had lunch and did some art store shopping, there was no way that I was going to turn that down.
These stats are as of today, since there was no school today, I spent all day downstairs in my office and pumped out all 5 of next months Doodleton cartoons, this last weekend I uploaded all of Falendor's 14 comics and I still have a week to spare.
This last week I bought Shannon a Cricut Cutter for Valentine's Day. It's a plotting cutter for crafters. So far I am liking it as much as she is.
With the time that I have left for this month I am going to be working on making and organizing stuff for Kingdom Traders, the RPG game that we are now running THREE different games for. We'll see if this little Cricut can't help with some of it.
