Well, this sucks.

Good thing I've been reading all those 'Post-Apocalyptic/Zombie/End of the World' books lately. It feels like everything I've learned by reading them will become useful information, sooner rather than later.
But seriously....I'm truly saddened by the outcome of this presidential election. Never in a million years did I think that we'd have such a repulsive reality star/business man as President of the United States.
It really speaks to the mentality of our country. While that absolutely frightens me, I can find some happiness in the fact that this disaster may end up forcing the like-minded folks to rise up and fight against the potential changes that he has talked about making.  You know, assuming he doesn't in fact cause the end of the world before we have that chance. For example....he and all his supporters have been screaming forever about 'Building that damn wall!!!' and insisting that Mexico is going to pay for it.  Do we really think that this will happen?  I highly doubt that it will, and I'm wondering how his supporters will feel once they realize that as well.
I could go on and on about this massacre, but I'll just say that I hope that we can all come together and get through this together.  We'll fight if we have to, but ultimately, we will NOT let this bring us down and we won't stand for anyone that tries to take away the rights that we've fought so hard to obtain.

Happy Halloween!!!

While it was a tad chilly, Halloween 2016 was a success! Zachary got a bunch of candy, we didn't get too many kids stopping by our house (more candy left for me!!!) and Z's costume was a hit.
However, I'm surprised that more people didn't know who he was supposed to be.  We even had some young kids (like 10 or 11 years old) that saw him and yelled out 'Oh no, it's Darth Vader!!!'
Zachary, in true form, quietly replied 'I'm Kylo Ren.'  It was pretty funny.
Other folks either gave him a generic compliment 'Oooooh, what a great costume!!!' or 'Wow, I love your light saber!' and we even got one 'Look out, it's a ninja!!!'
Even Zachary just let that one go.
All in all, it was a lot of fun.

In other news, I'm on day three of my model.  I know, I haven't mentioned it here yet...but that's a post for another day.

Until then, some pictures:
