Ready for the zombies

I was driving to the computer store to pick-up some iPads for Lincoln Lutheran students, when traffic came to a stand still. I was right at an intersection, so I thought I would just make a little jog to bypass whatever craziness was taking place ahead of me.

I went about a block and came to this house:

They are clearly working on their preparations for the Zombie Apocalypse, and who can blame them. I was impressed with their efforts thus far.  They are not yet completely around the house, but the stack is about 6 feet thick, so you could walk around on the top and pick zombies off without being in any danger of falling off the wall.

Also, I may have been playing too many zombie games this summer.  Also, there have been other posts about zombies.

    Is that a giant stack of free heat surrounding their house? I’ve wondered about doing such a thing… heating a house with a wood burning stove. If you had the right setup, it seems like it might work well.

4 a.m. freakouts

Several people in my family have insomnia, and I have always counted myself blessed to not have that problem. I am an excellent sleeper. Not lately, though. The past few nights I am WIDE AWAKE at 4 in the morning, freaking out about schedules and CPR. I’ve tried telling my dumb brain to worry about […]

The winged things.

Warning: some of them are dead. On Friday, one of the children came up to tell me that another child was stung by a wasp. Dang it. I went over to where it happened – a little wooden kitchen area. Sure enough, there was a wasp floating around. After cordoning off the area, I got […]

IMG_8736

One of the school-age teachers came to me this morning and said we had a collapse on the hill. I didn’t get a photo of it, but a hole happened up at the top and the dirt was spilling down to the ground over the tunnel. We asked the children to stay off it until […]

A weird, long day

I woke up around four with some panicky thoughts about school and tried to convince myself to worry about it in an hour and just sleep, but no. Wait. I forgot to mention that when the night started, I thought I hadn’t locked the CDC up. I fretted for fifteen minutes then just drove over […]
