not such a light sleeper

I thought I had a great "mommy instinct." Dog pukes, I wake up. Cat gets into something, I wake up. Child is here and is napping, child wakes up, I wake up...

But I slept through the earthquake which even my dad woke up for.

Apparently I needed the sleep--or I really do have a bad sinus infection.

Last time there was an earthquake here in the morning the shaking woke me up. I thought, "Wow, that truck going by must be huge, it's shaking the whole house!" and then rolled over and went back to sleep. Learned a few hours later when I woke up that it was an earthquake.

Apparently, the "truck" thought wasn't just me—there was also a loud audible rumble in addition to shaking so lots of people thought it was huge trucks or planes going by.

I can only hope that if "The Big One" they keep warning about ever hits, that I will clue in a bit faster!
