Husband has the best advice you should never take.
Just so everyone knows, this is from April of 2012. Our finances are doing much better since then, but it was a huge struggle (and had been for years). I've been very lucky over the past year, and remain so grateful to those who helped us when we were very close to foreclosure.
I'm really glad to hear things are going better now. While hubby & I aren't doing great at the moment, we're not hurting. Not any longer, at least. We had some bad debt issues for a while right after we got married when my health took a nosedive and I had to stop working, but we clawed and dragged ourselves out of that pit, have been ok for some time, and are hopeful for the future... my health and its expenditures permitting. THINKING POSITIVE!
I needed this comic. If all else fails, turn to heroin. Duly noted. In other news, I am SOOOO HAPPY that you're back! I only follow about a dozen webcomics out of the hundreds I've tried, and yours is one of them. It's great stuff, and I'm glad to have it back in my life.
