I was awakened very early Friday morning with my bed shaking. Now depending on who's in it, that could be a good thing. But since it was just me and Griffey, I knew something was odd. (Yes my spoiled dog sleeps in my bed.) I thought maybe he was just scratching or something cuz the bed was just barely moving. So I reached over to make him stop. But he was laying on his side sound asleep.
However the bed was still shaking. Was I dreaming? Was I possessed? Was there a serial killer under my bed? Then it stopped. Since I was still only half awake I rolled over and went back to sleep. Later that morning as I was getting ready for work, I kept thinking about it. Did I imagine it? Why was my bed shaking?
Then I turned on the news and heard that what I'd felt was a freakin' EARTHQUAKE! In Ohio! WTF? Apparently, there's a fault line in Illinois that registered a 5.4 magnitude earthquake at 4:37am. And we felt it all the way over here. Luckily, there were no reports of injuries and only minor damage. Crazy. That's a story to tell my grandchildren some day.
Baseball season has started. Why does that matter to me, you ask? Because the guy I share my second job with coaches his son's team. That means for the next couple months I'll be working 4 evenings a week to cover his absence. Unless it rains. Then he'll go to work instead. So I may be doing some rain dances over here so I can have a break. I hate baseball season.
My Florida sunburn has faded. No more pain. But now I have a lovely peel going on. Oh well... it was worth it. I had a blast.
Griffey had a follow up appointment with the vet on Wednesday. We got good news. His eye is 90% healed! The vet said it's remarkable considering how significant the injury was just a week ago. He has vision in the eye and hopefully things will continue to progress until he's completely recovered. We only have to put ointment in the eye twice a day now. Thank goodness. That's torture for both of us. And no more stupid lampshade thing on his head!
So my 3 words this week are for my baby boy.......
