Technology. It's just not my friend. My mom used to say I was born in the wrong decade, I'm thinking she's oh, so very right.
I put my inside trash can outside to air yesterday and forgot it... and of course it rained when it said it wasn't going to rain. Oh well, at least it wasn't acid rain ;)
I'm thinking about trying out for pro baseball. Why, you ask? Shhh... don't tell anyone, but I'm getting really good at throwing those annoying slugs and snails into the neighbor's
Speaking of strawberries, I'm estimating that I've gotten about 3 pounds worth out of them so far. Not bad for one plant I snagged for free thanks to a gift card from a survey a few years ago! :)
We *might* have found a place to buy back home. Well, it's back home, but nowhere near where we were looking for. For the life of us, neither of us could figure out where the town was. Both of us sat there for about a half an hour until I looked at DH and reminded him that we only have about 10 Texas maps stationed just about everywhere in this house, LOL. No wonder we had no idea - it was out of the area, and the closest town only has about 500 residents. (Be still my heart!) It also has a good amount of acreage... but it has a house already on the land. (Bye, bye house) DH saw the picture of the house and said it looked straight out of a horror movie. I said I thought it looked more like Deliverance. LOL Judging by the price per acre in the area, I'm thinking it's not priced with the house really in mind. ;) We're powpowing now to find out more. *If* I knew for sure DH had a job there, I'd be there tomorrow, tent and all.
...I might need to borrow someone's lawn mower though, because it looks like the grass hasn't been cut in a very long time. LOL
I had a dream last night. It was one of those end of the world dreams that seem to be my dream du jour. Anyways, after this one, I realized a very important prep: bolt cutters. (and lock pick set). What? How else do you spring pets loose from abandoned homes in an emergency? You better believe if I see my neighbors leave their pets behind, I'm taking them with us.
Speaking of prepping, I got a very simple text on Sunday from a friend: I should have listened to you.
I hope it's not too hot for those of you over on the other side of the country. :( Well, I know you're roasting, but I hope you have a cooler place to hang out in. I'd borrow some of your heat here if we could!
Um, this would totally be a family vacation for us: Zombie Apocalypse Theme Park Could Take Over Abandoned Neighborhood In Detroit Then again, it's Michigan, and being OSU alum, I have a phobia of that state. LOL Genius idea though, especially with zombies being all the rage. (gag me, though, I hate things that are all the rage. Why'd they have to come after my zombies?!)
Hey, where was this course when I was in school? I'd have gotten an A for sure! LOL Students survive 'zombie apocalypse' Way better than the "take care of your household" study we did in econ class in college. (Seriously, they sent us "shopping" at the grocery store to find prices. Sigh! I discovered my love of coupons when I was *3*, trust me, I knew how to shop for cheap in college)
Your giggle of the day:
