A Warning would have killed you???

Really, I thought animals were supposed to be so in-tuned with the earth, the weather, and changes in such things.  At about 1:50 this afternoon, my ass was shaken off the couch by a 5.9 magnitude earthquake up in VA.  I immediately thought storm or tornado, but there were sunny skies and no wind.  I ran to the windows (smart, I know, but we don’t think earthquake in NC) and there was nothing going on outside.  The shaking eventually stopped and when I looked around, everyone was right where I had left them.  Sleeping on the couch, in the chair and under the table.

A warning would have killed you?  Is it out of the question to think you would be as concerned for my safety as I am for yous?  I mean, really!  I jumped on the internet and immediately confirmed the earthquake between Charlottesville and Richmond.  Aftershocks are possible.  And still, the animals are sleeping.

About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
