- My phone has weird emoticons on it that I cannot control. I don't understand what some of them mean, like this one or this one I should still not be allowed to use this phone because I keep inserting weird emoticons into my facebook messaging. I apologize to anyone who finds this in their message. I don't know why it's even in my phone, or what message it could possibly convey. Perhaps "time to play monopoly with cats?"
- Gluten-free pie crust is really, really, really hard to make.
- Failing miserably at making a pie crust makes me very cranky.
- Baking powder and cornstarch should be packaged in containers that look completely different in every way.
- If you accidentally put baking powder into your berry pie filling it fizzles like a science experiment.
- You can fix a baking powder accident in your pie filling with lots of sugar.
- Berry pie filling is great on ice cream when your crust fails.
- Clothes that have been on the floor for 5 months can be picked up in 5 minutes if you threaten to throw them away.
- Father's Day stinks when your husband/father of your children is in Afghanistan.
- Child 2 is not afraid of zombies, and I should apologize for implying that she is. She is afraid of contact lenses instead.

Bad Day 340--The zombies ruined my piecrust
Things I learned today:
This would be car-jacker in Texas is having a worse day than me. He hid out in an unlocked minivan until the woman who owned the car and her kids came out and got in it. Then he pulled a knife on the mom, but she decided she was having none of it. She grabbed the knife, punched the car-jacker in the face, ran the car deliberately into a telephone poll all while dialing 911. Then when the car-jacker jumped out of the car and tried to run away, she ran him down with the car. He was airlifted to the hospital and his car-jacking days are probably over. This is her picture.
She said she was just protecting her kids, and I think she is an awesome mom. So thank you, Ms. Spitfire, for fighting back and winning. I'm glad you and your children are safe and that car-jacker is no longer on the streets. People should not underestimate moms in mini-vans. And to Husband, let's not do another Father's Day with you in Afghanistan.
