Just Discovered: Awful Hospital

I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of another amazing online comic. It’s called Awful Hospital and it’s kind of brilliant. It was featured on Geek and Sundry recently which was testimony enough to make me check it out. It drew me in pretty quickly because of the bright, vibrant visuals and the unique (to me) set up.

It was actually a game afternoon. Our plans for the day had been foiled by a car that opted not to play along with my intentions of going grocery shopping, so I had the brilliant idea to play some favorite games (we also played Connect Four and The Princess Cupcake Game) with the kids to distract us all (mainly me) from the car troubles and … Continue reading Game Night: Apples to Apples Kids Edition
