That was definitely a first.
I have never had an earthquake happen during my run until yesterday. It was raining, snowing and crazy windy and I was so deep in thought about everything else going on in the world that I felt really dizzy and off for a bit and thought, ‘that was weird.’ A few seconds later and my watch was buzzing from phone calls and texts. I answered and Andrew asked if I was okay because there was an earthquake. It woke up Brooke and Andrew .(Skye is a very deep sleeper). It was a 5.7 in magnitude with the epicenter near Salt Lake City. I wouldn’t have realized it was an earthquake until he told me that and I was a few miles from home but Andrew said it shook up our house pretty good. Brooke has been in a different earthquake with Andrew and me in the past while in California (it was much smaller) so when it woke her up she was able to comprehend what was happening since she has experienced something similar before. The craziest part for us is that my oldest brother recommended our family all buy earthquake insurance so we felt lucky the rest of the day to have that in place just in case.
I feel like I usually run even numbers in mileage, rarely odd numbers. An earthquake, snow, rain and solo because of social distancing… yesterday felt so bizarre.
We then went to pick up Knox and on the way home we definitely felt the need to drive-thru for some donuts. That maple bar helped ease my stress.
Every time the kids felt a little aftershock when we got home they freaked out thinking it was going to be more.
This week has really helped me to put things in perspective again and I’m just so grateful for my people and that we are all okay. That’s all that matters.
For the rest of the day we tried to stay busy with activities and school work.
Homeschooling is going well but the hardest part is definitely trying to keep Skye happy and entertained while helping the big kids too. It’s definitely keeping us busy.
We got in the hot tub and stayed there until we all had very wrinkly hands and feet.
Erica gave us the best idea to make a reading fort for the kids to get in their reading time followed by listening to a story on the iPad!
And of course homemade popcorn happened again because we are all very obsessed!
Four more things before I sign off…
*Anyone else using FaceTime more than ever before?! I’m grateful I can catch up with everyone this way!
*This episode from Matt with Jared ward was just SO so good.
*Happiest bday to my mom!! I wish so badly that we could spend the day together going to lunch and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory but I’m so grateful they are doing well quarantined and we will go celebrate when this is all over!
*My sis-in-law sent this to me and I just really loved it. I hope it helps anyone else out there that needs it.
Do you usually run an even or odd number in mileage?
