Yeah We Were Shakin'

August 24, 2011

Today is hubby's birthday but we hadn't planned anything special since we're trying to save up money for Rusty's visit next month.

We were sitting in the living room, he was playing Black Ops on his PS3 and I was messing around on my laptop. All of a sudden I started feeling this rumbling, then our walls starting moving back and forth from the front of the house to the back.

I froze y'all. I couldn't say anything, I couldn't move. I was just sitting there like a dumb ass lol. Finally I managed to say "why is our house moving??" Hubby replied "you feel that too?" He thought he was getting dizzy from playing his game (lmao!!).

Good Lord y'all. I was in Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina and then two weeks later Hurricane Rita. I thought that was the scariest thing I'd ever been through. Let me tell you, give me a hurricane any day.

This earthquake crap is for the birds. This little Cajun girl NO LIKEY. NO LIKEY AT ALL!

I was dizzy for at least two hours after the earthquake stopped. I was an emotional wreck. I couldn't stop shaking. For all you crazies people who live in earthquake prone areas, I think you're nuts for staying there lol you're much braver than I am!

And to make matters even lovelier, we've got Hurricane Irene headed in our direction. Is Hubby worried?? Nope, not at all. Am I? You betcha!

Can't I just go home to Louisiana already?

Wow, I didn't even notice the quake. A bunch of people in my area did, but me? Nope. We get one once every century and I wasn't even aware:( til I heard it on the radio in the car.

I am SO ready to move back to Louisiana. We are actually considering it. The brutal heat here in Texas is unbearable. I'm with you, I'll take a hurricane any day! I've never been through an earthquake, but I don't want to know! Trees bending over in the wind I can take; the ground coming apart underneath me I can't! lol

So glad that the earthquake wasn't worse, but that hurricane is lookin' pretty scary! You definitely need to get on a plane and come home, cher! :) It's just plain old hot here.
