It's been a fun 2 weeks

Yeah I'm 31!

( It still breaks my heart to see this pic. I added it after they lost the Superbowl)

Well, I turned 31 on the 11th and the kids bought me a whole bunch of flowers from hobby lobby. They wanted to get me flowers that wouldn't die. They are beautiful too. Brent got my wedding ring fixed so I can finally wear it again. It was an awesome day.
Brent decided he wanted his own car for his birthday. He found a 96 grand am in good running condition, but needed brake repair. He spent $650 on the car and $725 on the brakes. He is so relieved to have it. Sam's b-day is on the 1st and he wants to go bowling.

Don't Ever let the Zombies ruin your books!

I just read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and it was a nightmare! Well, I guess it was supposed to be, but I'm not really talking about the gory brain feasting, or martial arts skills, or the whole zombie mayhem. The "nightmare" was the destruction of my beloved characters morals and integrity. Of all the things I could hate about it, I hated the sexual references and infidelity the most. He basically attacked marriage with zombies.
It was interesting to read how the Zombies affected the outcome of certain characters, but mostly it was gross.
The other night I made stroganoff for dinner. I had taken one bite of the meat, when the flavor and texture reminded me of a nasty passage from the book. I couldn't eat. Brent had great fun with this though. He said we should call it 'stroganoggin' from now on and that the 'elbow' mac was a nice touch to the zombie meal. I about hurled.
Just don't read it.
