So apparently there was an earthquake in Maryland this morning. I didn’t even notice. The earthquake occurred at 5:04am.
I normally wake up at 5:15am every weekday morning (and yes, you read that correctly so hopefully this helps shed some light as to why I go to bed so early… or eat dinner at 5pm like a senior citizen) but this morning I woke up at 5:05am. I was really irritated too because hello? That was 10 more minutes of sleep I could have gotten but now I can’t really fall back asleep because I know my alarm will go off.
I didn’t hear or feel any shaking/rattling of the house but apparently Jeremy did. I think that the earthquake probably woke me up but obviously not until after the fact. I wonder if I’d be aware of a fire in my house before it reached my bedroom. Would the smoke wake me? Yikes.
In other “I slept through an earthquake” news – my dog, Petie, was apparently very sick last night. Here is where I think I’d make a bad mom. He hopped out of bed around 1am this morning. I thought he was just hot but I heard him pacing the floor. I got up and put him back in bed and he jumped back out again. I’ve been exhausted lately and since I had a big meeting at work, I asked Jeremy to take Petie outside.
Apparently Petie had peed on the bedroom carpet, had diarrhea (outside) and puked. I didn’t even realize the poor guy was in distress. :-(
The day can only get better, right?
Are you a light sleeper?
