Mines quite normal. Except for the part where the kids were exceptionally well behaved in the post office and didn't touch a single thing!

I though the end of the world had come after all!

Well, we are all still alive, and I haven't seen any zombies around, but I do live in a quiet suburb.

Going OK here.  DS has just come home from his last day at primary school and is off with his dad having a bit of cricket practice.  DD is playing on the computer.  As am I.  I have Elf Radio playing to jolly things along.  Later we will go to my parent's place for dinner and then go for a christmas lights drive.  And then probably get attacked by zombies.  Average day.

No zombies yet, so I guess that's a good sign.

Damn, someone beat me to it.

I'll be happy as long as they don't arrive before dinner tonight, as it's going to be delicious

I woke up with a flu, which I caught from my dad.  I  had to do a huge grocery shop despite my thorbbing head, barking cough and throat on fire and am so sick I can't face packing it all away and cleaning out the fridge.  I had planned to clean the house and finish wrapping presents, but thats not going to happen!  Now DD is complaining of a sore throat.  House full of sick people for Christmas.  Yes, they were right, doomsday is upon us.

Crap, my SIL is a complete and selfish cow, she upset my DH last night, and he will take it to heart until it's resolved, which may be quite a while. Hope the brooding stops soon. Christmas just got crapper-er.

Too hot to do the things I'd planned, so am hold up inside, air conditioning on and have gotten the kids off my computer so I can have a bit of EB time wink.gif

I WAS folding washing, but given the world will end in a few hours, I decided "bugger it"  original.gif

So far so good, birds and animals not behaving any differently then usual, Jack Russell is curled up on teh bed next to me and old 14 yr old terrier in her basket underneath.....if there's an apocalypse about to happen and animals are supposed to know these things before us...well, we must have very uselessly hopeless animals of all kinds here  ohmy.gif

No zombies that I can hear or see...all well in regional Qld from what I can tell!

Tamm

It is VERY humid isn't it? I disagree on the animals, the ants attacked me when I hung out the washing. They are bad today. But then it might just mean apocalyptic rain.

I too am sick. Not fit for running from zombies, that's for sure.

It's going fantastic. Kids get home, pull all the toys out, fight with each other, scream down the house, sook because I say no ice cream and get distracted constantly when packing up.
Guess if the worlds ending we can have juk food for tea and leave all housework?

I too have my towel at the ready, and DHs collection of vinyl records to behead zombies.

Other than that its been an ordinary day. DH is home early & now on holiday, which means my motivation is gone. Good thing I won't need it to more than a few hours!
