I admit to being obsessed with The Walking Dead series. I even cried for Daryl Sunday night. I’m obsessed to the point of trying to figure out
amazing scenarios for the show. I would love to sit down and chat with the writers of the series but I know that will never happen so therefore I will share my greatest ideas with you. Aren’t you flattered?!
While walking through the Louisville Zoo the other day it occurred to me that in the event of a zombie apocalypse, all of the zoo animals would still be around if they were fierce like say a lion or tiger. So what if
Rick and the group managed to catch a lion (because let’s face it, they can do anything!) and they set it free inside the prison enclosure, in between the gates. The lion would then eat any zombie or person that came near the prison. It would be like having a zombie-eating dog, a killing machine of sorts. Wouldn’t that make a great show?!
Or what if the group stumbled upon a zoo while running from the Governor? Imagine the crazy shit that could happen. And I know they don’t like to travel around much but wouldn’t it be worth their while to find a Wal-Mart, what a score that would be. I told you I was obsessed.
I love my children dearly but I have to admit I was happy to drop them off at school yesterday morning. After ten days of being with them 24/7 I
sure needed a break. I figured the bickering would diminish somewhat once we arrived at the hotel but I was wrong, they just found a whole new set of things to fight about; pushing the elevator button, putting the room card in the slot, who would get into the pool first and who got to sleep where. They also starting calling things, “I call pushing the elevator button, or I call using the shower first.” I have only three days to regain my sanity because Easter vacation starts on Friday and ends the following Tuesday.
And we all know what Sunday is right?! That’s right, the season finale for The Walking Dead! Oh wait; its Easter too isn’t it?!
Showing a House
I can’t put up any Easter decorations this year. When you are trying to sell your house any personalized or holiday items are a big no-no. A
house must remain plain so future buyers can envision their things in your house. We are in full blown ‘house showing mode’ at our house. We have hardwood floors in the kitchen and with the muddy, yucky yard; dog and kid footprints were being cleaned up on a regular basis. My solution for this was to mop the floor so it was nice and shiny and then I covered the floor with blankets. When it’s time for a showing, I simply pick up the blankets and a clean floor is underneath. This saves me a lot of time.
We also have ‘fake towels’ in the bathroom. They are brand new and the kids know not to use them. The laundry must be caught up at all times,
the dishwasher must remain empty, the floors must be vacuumed daily, and things must be dusted, as you never know when you will get a call about a showing.
The vet gave me Cat Valium for Maddie so she can now travel during showings without having an accident. The drugs affect her almost
immediately and last several hours. Her eyes cross and she can only take a few steps without falling down. It’s like having a drunken cat. I’m jealous and considering taking one of her tiny pink pills to make the next showing easier on me too.
Getting a house ready for a showing is exhausting and I can’t wait for this house to sell so we can move on. It’s to the point where I could
easily star on the Walking Dead.
I told you I was obsessed right?!
