1. This is hilarious! Though I know it’s not hilarious living through it. Thank God my husband is finished with overnight on-call shifts, I wouldn’t sleep at all with my hearing on high alert and my heart pounding. You need to write that funny horror book!! Incidentally, I stumbled on The Evil Dead movie last night & my hubby & I laughed our way through it…till it was time for me to use the bathroom…not so funny then lol

  2. I love this. I am the same way. I don’t sleep for a week when Joe goes to Germany. I am completely convinced someone is going to break into our home, or Joe will die in a plane crash or some other German “incident.” I’m not even really sure what a German “incident” is, but it seems scary.

    And you do live in Zombie territory. My brother has outlined it on the NJ map, and your town is on the border of the zombie zone.

    BTW, How long did the Sugar Daddies list get before you realized you needed to stop? Just curious.

    @Jenn I still can’t watch horror movies. Thankfully, my husband isn’t a fan of them either. A zombie homeschooling book is about as scary as I can handle!
    @Kellie I will admit to nothing in regards to my imaginary love life.

  4. > “What if the zombie apocalypse is upon us?…Tony and the kids are doomed!!!”

    What?! This is complete nonsense. I would thrive in the zombie apocalypse. You obviously haven’t been taking note of my Doom 3 skillz.

    My husband is not away from home often, but this is EXACTLY what happens when he is. Our floorplan is split so the kids’ rooms are on the other side of the house from the master. So I try to think how I would get to the kids if such-and-such happened, and what do I have nearby to use as a weapon, and what’s the quickest way into the attic, and…and…the list goes on. I have a dimmer switch on my bedside lamp so I sleep with that on when I am alone. It helps…a little.

    And seriously, what is with the zombie stuff?? I think about that, too. It’s like, that would never happen, but…And then my mind won’t stop. Oh, and the resurrection of old horror movie fears. I haven’t watched a horror movie in forever but they never fail to come to the forefront of my imagination on those nights.

    Hang in there!!! And stay up until you can’t possibly keep yours eyes open another moment!
