Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide

I lovingly call my Emergency Notebook my Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide. My husband bemoans my insistence to call planning for, well, any emergency situation "Zombie Planning". My thought process runs something like this: "Hey, let's face it, if you're prepared for a zombie apocalypse, you're prepared for pretty much any emergency except for a house falling out of the sky and landing on you. And some of the better prepared (read "more extreme") zombie survival kits may even have something to help you with that". Instead of bemoaning and grumbling about my planning, he should be grateful I no longer carry a screwdriver, pair of pliers, and duct tape in my purse and don't plan like THAT anymore. Because I could. Really.

Um. Anyway...

And, now, it seems that the CDC agrees with me!

If you're ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency. emergency.cdc.gov

I can't begin to describe how delighted I am with this or how displeased my husband is that I've been given validation from the federal government! There was much maniacal giggling when I discovered this new emergency plan. There was also much groaning and rolling of eyes when he discovered it. Girl was somewhere in between; she was giggling but she's 14 so there was some reflexive groaning and eye-rolling going on at the same time.

Eventually, this space will hold details (possibly even links) to my Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide (that's Emergency Notebook to you), but for now, I'll just link to the CDC.

Safe travels,
