It was an interesting morning...

So the baby woke me up around 2:30am. I grabbed him and chucked him into bed with me.

And then at 4:30am... the EARTHQUAKE woke me up!

The house was shaking and all the windows were rattling. Of course I had a momentary freak out because in my mind the only think that would have shaken the house like that was a tornado, so I grabbed the baby and jumped out of bed. I looked out the window and it was as calm a night as you could want. And then my brain was like "oh, I guess that was an earthquake."

Well, I was quite impressed. It was my first one and all.

Isn't nature an exciting beast? Was it over 5 on the Richter scale? I don't notice anything under 5 any more LOL. But I hope it didn't do any damage. And did young Max manage to sleep through it?

I think it was a 5.2, no damage, I think one of my grandmother's plants fell off a table. Max sort of woke up when I snatched him out of bed, but he went right back to sleep.

Oh my!
The earth moved for you then!

Apart from my flu induced silliness, I hope that you, bub and everyone are all right.

Good that things are ok. I hear it was a fairly widespread quake.

Sounds exciting!

Glad nothing was broken and that you guys are fine. You should make a scrapbook or something for Max and put all these things in it... lol. He might enjoy the read when he gets older.

*hugs*

Loved chatting to you last night, even if it was only for a very short time. Glad to hear that you are doing well.

You never forget your first! :-)

I'm trying very hard not to be smug, after decades of listening to folks from the Midwest ask me how I could live in California when it could fall into the ocean at any minute...
