A guilty pleasure

Although, I don't really know what I have to be guilty about. Except Joel makes fun of me for it.

I like to read the Sunday comics. In fact, I rarely read any of the rest of the Sunday paper, because I keep up on all the news I need to online. Is that really so bad?

In conjunction with that, I keep up on my favorite comic strip by reading it online every day. It's been my favorite since I was like 12. So, for more than 20 years I've been reading Luann.

I admit, that's kind of sad. But whatever. I know lots of people who do the same with their various favorite comic strips.

I had to chuckle when Bria came in the living room Monday morning and found me reading the comics and got very excited.

"Can I read those things after you? I really like those, they're so funny!"

And later, I found her in her room like this:
And I really hope that she enjoys reading them for the rest of her life. I think it's something we should all do.


  1. I used to love reading the comics when I was young. It made me feel so mature like I was reading the paper.

    That is a great photo of your dd. It almost looks like she has a mug of coffee with a spoon of sugar.

  2. I love the picture.I to can remember reading comics too. O the simple things in life.

  3. Super Cute!! She looks so serious with her comics. LOL

  4. Bria is so funny! What a great picture!

  5. I love this..... the picture is adorable.

  6. Conner has totally gotten into comics lately too.
    Funny stuff.

  7. Let's SO do it.

    What day works best for you? And do you want to come here, to my house?

    Talk about exciting...........

  8. It was so great to see you and your adorable girls this weekend! It's really too bad that Joel couldn't be here, and I sure hope Chloe is feeling better! We'll have to do that more often, so next time you're up our way...let's play! Bria had a blast with your Bria, and I'm sure Micah and Chloe would get along great! Fun Fun!!!

  9. ok, you've got me into that! spent an hour yesterday reading the link you provided :). Fun Luann :)!

  10. That IS super cute! Great picture :) I always went straight for the Dear Abby column from the time I was young to the last time I read the paper. I wonder what that says about me..?
