My life as a cartoon

My life as a cartoon

D’oh! That’s the cartoon me.

Younger Daughter took a tumble off her horse earlier this week. That happens a lot, only this time she landed wrong side up and got a concussion. Just a mild one — but I still had to wake her up every couple of hours to make sure her eyes were both pointing in the same direction and her mind was clear. (As clear as a teenager’s mind can be at 3:00 a.m., at any rate.)

The time I’ve spent awake these past few nights was spent dabbling in a new (for me) art form. I discovered a neat website called BitStrips.com that lets you make your own comic strip. Which I promptly did, and the result is now adorning my About Me page. Please check it out and let me know what you think shower me with praise.

About Maria

I'm a Canadian repatriate, former expat spouse, mother to two TCKs (and one yellow Lab), mentor to new immigrants, writer, reader, world traveller (grounded for now). I write about expat/repat issues and am still trying to figure out my place in the world.

    You’re wonderful! Marvellous! A creative mind like no other! Shower, shower, shower (this is not to remind you of the showering toilet or whatever it is …. ), praise, praise, praise …

    Cute! At first, I thought you were jumping on the bandwagon of those animated robot voiced thing-a-ma-jigs (not sure what they are called, but I like this cartoon better!)
