**Hear, "I'm a survivor" by Destiny Child playing in the background**

Malone and I survived our first EARTHQUAKE!!!

That's all. Just thought you should know. If you want to know the details, read on:

It was 5:25am and I had just put Malone back to sleep (yes, she woke up that early!). I crawled back in my bed and laid there. All of a sudden I felt slight shaking for about 10 seconds. It felt like when we have the washer and dryer on and the floor shakes. I thought, "Oh, the washer & dryer isn't on. This can't be an earthquake. Maybe it is....should I go get Malone...I'll wait & see if it gets worse...wait, what are you suppose to do in an earthquake, stand in the door jams...upstairs or downstairs...go in the street?" Yes, I literally thought all of that in the 10 seconds. And then went back to sleep. It was so quick that I kinda thought it was a dream this morning. Then, I turned on the news and sure enough, an earthquake. It was a 4.5 on the seismic scale and happened 14 miles northwest of Seattle.

We survived our first earthquake. Lets hope its the last.
