So, I keep bumping my post for some awards we got - and much like Fin's mom, I know there is one out there that I can't find again (I know that I got one from the cutie "pibbles" (I LOVE THAT NAME FOR THEM BY THE WAY) at Kissa-Bull and one from Fiona at Spot and Fiona but I think there is one that I accidently set to "Mark as Read" - much like Fin's mom did in her post yesterday). But yesterday I decided to post about our new friend Gracie (not to be confused with ♥Gracie♥ or Gracie). Oh, and you can tell when we talk about Barney's girl ♥Gracie♥ because he insists I put the hearts around her name! So that will help a bit!
So then today, I was going to post them, but the we had AN EARTHQUAKE!! Now, I know for some of you that isn't a big deal, but we are right outside Chicago! A lot of people don't realize this is a seismically active area but it is - although usually much further south in New Madrid - an earthquake actually changed the route of the Mississippi River at one point, I think in the 1800's). We have felt them here before (I remember one when I was a kid) but it is always exciting. This morning I was up (I didn't sleep well) and I hear stuff rattling for a few seconds. I naturally assumed it was the cats but turns out they were innocent (sorry kitties) and it was the earthquake!
So I was watching the cats to see if they were acting any different this morning when I got up, but they were acting the same as always - probably because they were hungry since it was breakfast time. Hopefully they didn't freak out too much.
So we will be doing the awards tomorrow - if you are the person I missed I appologize - please let me know and I will be sure to mention it. Oh, and I am super behind in both visiting and NKC stuff (I have a badge to work on) and will be catching up with all that too!
