EDITED TO ADD: Awrright, awready. So I missed the starting of the earthquake party but you didn't have to provide me with all these aftershocks! I've got books boogeying down the shelves, my coffee travel mug is doing the Macarena and I swear me and my computer chair were doing the "turn yourself around" part of the Hokey Pokey. And I have a child freaking out because she and the dogs are scared. So knock off the aftershocks already. I PROMISE I won't miss the beginning of the next earthquake---pinkie swear!!!
If I hadn't had the news on to hear them talking about it I would have never known as this crew slept right through it.
I *did* wonder how some stuff on top of my Military Shrine got tumped over. Now I know!
2 out of 3 kids felt it and I've already heard from them.
I was around for the November 68 earthquake and my earthquake quotient has been filled for the rest of my life and then some!
My dad was on his honeymoon with his new wife, this 14 y/o was staying with her aunt who had a beauty shop in her home and all of the sudden the house was twitching and things were falling and I ran out the back door and fell to the ground. And there was aftershock after aftershock all afternoon. My father's daughter was married to a very religious man(Church of God of Prophecy) and he told me that this meant the world was getting ready to end and we were going to die and had I been "saved and sanctified?" All I knew was that I wasn't going ANYWHERE WITHOUT MY DAD! He was in Kentucky and called me and they came home the next day.
So glad I missed out on this one. Ignorance is so, so bliss!
Thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts about the PT appointment yesterday but I didn't end up going. I was having a major fibro flare and the thought of anyone touching me much less my arm and shoulder just wasn't comprehensible, so Roger called and cancelled the appointment. I think I will just keep doing my exercises at home and see where we go. It is improved from when I started and I can live with the amount of capacity I have with it now.
I'm off work today so I'm going to tackle the new computer office and have a Hallie Whirling Dervish and get rid of stuff that does not have a place. I think Roger is dreading it because I show no mercy.
I want you to especially keep Hallie and John in your thoughts and prayers this weekend for them to have a restful, meaningful, calm and worry-free weekend.
And be good to yourselves because you are each so worth it!
