Welcome to Geekasaurus

Say Rawr!

Geekasaurus is a silly little comic about a geeky family. Specifically, my geeky family, and all the antics and hijinks of my daughter. You'll read along as we go on adventure after adventure, documenting the unexpected chuckles (and sometimes hard truths) along the way. As my husband and I learn to navigate being new parents, I'll be sharing the hilarity, one comic at a time.

Sometimes when we have a million things to work on, my husband and I put unrealistic expectations on how our plans will unfold. For example, this weekend we were somehow going to clean the house, build a Ghostbusters roof rack for the minivan, sort through over 1000 board and card games in our basement, and visit family. On top of all of that, I was going to write 10,000 words for my novel and somehow squeeze in an art commission, brunch with friends, a workout, and a shower. 

We did not do all the things. 

What my husband and I had instead were moments of frustration with one another when we realized that we had not done a great job of communicating our individual expectations. He had his plan all set, I had mine all set, and when they didn’t match – BOOM! Instant mini argument. It’s something that we are working on. I have faith that we’ll eventually find our groove. 

We did sort through a lot of the games. We pulled out around 50 games and brought them down to our local game shop for a board game sale. Brunch was not sacrificed. I drank several Moscow Mules and had a hangover a couple of hours later (because I’m apparently old now) and we did a lot of shopping around to figure out the best WAY to build the Ghostbusters roof rack, although we didn’t actually do any building. I watched my daughter make silly faces. We snuggled and watched that Troll movie when she couldn’t sleep for some reason. 

It was a good weekend. Even with the arguments and frustration. The good outweighed the uncomfortable, and I call that a win. Now, I’ve just got to dig myself out of a mountain of failed expectations. This may take a while …
