Year of the Apocalypse

The last 12 months have been a tremendously challenging time for me on many levels.  Truly a year of apocalyptic change and upheaval.  Divorce...job loss...beginning a new relationship...selling a house (the one I was building in miniature)...moving...twice...raising a teenage son...learning to be a step dad to my beloved's two children...  Honestly there were times in recent months when I wished the zombies would rise.  It would have made life simpler.

In the midst of such chaos, it is often necessary to set aside certain aspects of life in order to preserve energy and sanity.  Things like hobbies and blogs take a back seat to more urgent matters.  This blog has suffered such a cut.  I offer to my readers my apologies.  Hopefully you all understand.

As life appears to be smoothing out I am hopeful of being able to reengage with All Things Zombie.  As I do so, this blog will become active again.  My goal is to post every Friday, starting today.  I ask you all to hold me accountable to that goal.  If you see I have not posted please ask 'what's up?'

I managed to get some games in several months ago.  It was a wonderful evening ('date night') with my beloved.  (Yes, she even enjoys the 'nerdy games' I play...)  We played several introductory scenarios and I took pics with my iPhone.  Look for a post about that next week.

Until then I wish you all well.  It's good to be back.  Peace.


  1. It's good to have you back. Hopefully, the worst is behind you now and you can look forward to a more relaxed future. Real life can suck big time and can hit you in the face when you least expect it. We've all suffered from it, although probably not as bad as you have. I wish you all the best and I look forward to reading your blog on a weekly basis.

    1. Thanks, Vamp. Your encouragment and support mean a lot. I know you've had your share of suffering this year as well. It is good to have friends in such times. I'm looking forward to better days.

  2. That real world kinda sucks somtimes. Here's to a brighter future.

  3. Life can be harsh... I can imagine how you arrived to hope in a real Zombie Apocalypse!

    But as Vampifan and Zombie Ad said, the worst is passed, now can be brighter! :D

  4. Thanks for the support! Here's to hoping the worst has passed...

  5. Nice one!Good to hear you are on the up, I have added you to my bloglist and look forward to your AARs :)

  6. It happens to us all from time to time. Glad your back and looking forward to reading your future posts :D

  7. You have been missed!

    Nice to see you did not turn zombie....

    New life, new beginning.... Good luck mate!

  8. Thanks, Lord Siwoc. I'm glad I didn't turn either!

  9. Thanks, Kobayachimaru! It's good to be back.

  10. Well, I've only found your blog a while ago on some other blog, and I loved your project with the said house. That might look kinda weird, but I just wanted to say, that I, too, wish you all the best with the new beginning and it is nice too see you got your gaming buddy right next to you all the time!

  11. Thanks, Mathyoo! Despite all the hardship, the changes have been worth it. I'm still debating in my mind about the house project. All I need to do is finish the roof and base it but I'm thinking about making it a burned out hulk instead. Kind of symbolic... We'll see. It's in storage for now.
