Aftershock

........we interrupt our normal programming for yet ANOTHER aftershock.

Yes.  We are still having them, and they still make my nerves go "ohhhhhhhh!!"

We found some cracks in the podging on our foundation a few weeks ago.  I guess all of the aftershocks either did that or the earthquake did it and we couldn't see them for a while.  The actual foundation is fine, but the podging is very obviously cracked!  We were fortunate to not sustain any serious damage to our home as people only a few miles away had their homes condemned.

Poor Mariah was a bit traumatized as she was on the potty for most of the 5.8 until I could rescue her. 
Then she was on the potty again for our 4.6 aftershock later that night. 
It was kind of funny... she asked for weeks," Is the potty gonna shake again?"

Hey, maybe you just found your source of potty woes... Is she scared the potty will shake?

Nah. I did think about it while writing this, but she had peeing issues before the quake that we thought we resolved. Then no issues after we had it (August), then back to some issues now. She really just does it to test! I think she's about done now lol .. we've had a good week.



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
