For the first half of the year, I continued working for an animation studio, working on a Netflix special of LalaLoopsie. (Scheduled to air this year.)

I worked with clients old and new, working on character designs, storyboards and animation.

In January I attended Further Confusion, always a good time to catch up with bay area friends and draw lots of cartoons.

In April I flew from Los Angeles to Lexington, KY., to join my daughter and husband for a spring break roadtrip to Myrtle Beach SC, Asheville NC and Gatlinburg, TN.

In May I went to Tiki Caliente, a tiki con in Palm Springs. I got to attend a wonderful seminar on rum punches, and soaking in the pool and hot tub.

In June my husband and daughter flew out to L.A., and the adults attend Califur to draw more cartoons.

Best thing: Brian getting full-time employment, with the same company that he worked for 5 years ago, the same supervisor, higher salary, back in Charlottesville.

We pick up Brian in Reno, NV, and we all (including parrot) drive across the country together, seeing the tallgrass prairie, shooting stars, pronghorn antelope, Aspen and the Rockies, and the volcanic plains and copper mines of Nevada.

We move into a nice new rental townhouse, all our little family living together again. It's not the little house in the country that I want, but it has good schools for our daughter, which is the priority.

Sam is able to get braces, attend TaeKwonDo, Children's Choir, and joins Girl Scouts.

In December, Sam and I fly to L.A. for Christmas. We fly back with our cat, Tikka, who is settling in nicely, probably very happy to not have to interact with mom's crazy cat anymore.

In 2017: Becoming much more politically active, drawing more, finishing old art projects, getting medical treatment and therapy to continue self-improvement, getting reading glasses, learning ToonBoom, saving money for a trip to AFRICA in 2019.

This is all good stuff!

Was the Tiki con just last year? It feels so long ago. :D
