I went to Walmart to get my medication so we figured we'd multitask. Our local Walmart just became a Super Walmart, but if you ask me, it's not so super. DH wanted bait - no bait. He figured he'd check out the guns they just added - no guns in the display cases, just prices. Neeevveerrmind then. The only reason I keep my prescription there is because it means I can get my asthma meds no matter where we are, or I'd just skip going.
I need a nap. DH's schedule has changed again thanks to vacations, and he's back to working afternoon/evenings. It's not working out too well for us around here. He's turning into a zombie, my head is spinning, and it's really hard to explain to the kiddo why Daddy's not around for bedtime.
The lack of warm weather means my poor garden really has become poor. I broke down and bought a tomato plant, and besides that, it looks like all we are going to have this year are strawberries, blackberries, onions, mint (of course), and then apples when they are ready. The ironic part is that my yard already has dead grass!
Yeah, not exactly genius: ZOMBIE License Plate Leads To Woman’s Arrest Then again, it seems half of the planet could really use a little Darwinism... just sayin'.
....someone emailed me and asked if I really hoped for a zombie invasion. I replied back, and I'll say it here too: Nah. It's entertaining, don't get me wrong - but unless you live in an underground bunker with a really good growing set up, back up power up the wazooooo, you're pretty much toast if there ever was a zombie outbreak. I don't, and I'm not delusional enough to think my family would make it very long - especially if those zombies were fast moving with a lot of strength. ;) Zombies are fun though, and if you're preparing a bit for zombies, you're prepared for just about any bad weather. You're not exactly going to see my family on an episode of Doomsday Preppers any time soon though. ;)
This looks like a blast: Zombie apocalypse arrives in Ocean City See, now I'd love to be involved in something like that. Have a funhouse set up, then host classes weekly on different zombie preparedness topics - because canning is a zombie survival skill alongside shooting skills, right? ;)
OK, not really zombie related - weeeeellll, if the end of the world happens, you'll have to grow your own food sooner or later, but check out this nifty idea on making a cheaper rolling compost bin:

If you have a soda place near you, I would think you could get the empty syrup containers for under $50? Clean it out well, then drill those holes. It would be a lot cheaper than the $100 plus you see them in the store. I use a trash can for mine.
Oh oh the sun is out! That's my call to get the laundry hanging.
