Mother Nature...she must really be ticked off lately.
and then, because the west coast didn't receive any of her wrath she decided to send a 1-2 punch just to let us know who's boss
with a quick, severe thunderstorm last night, right as we were drifting off to sleep.
it was THIS kind of lightning the kind that flashes so brightly and has a couple friends a long for the ride and touches the ground. Bewtcut and I start falling asleep thinking it may just be a lightning storm
and just as we're about to drift off into dreamland
*BOOM* *CRACK* *BOOM*
like the LOUDEST thunder ever.
it was sharp, if that makes sense.
and it shook the house and my body to the bone, making me flinch hard and my eyes were wide open.
"did you hear that???" i asked Bewtcut
Apparently i was still holding Bewtcut's hand cuz he grumbled,
"geez you dug me"
"oh, sorry" i said,
not really sorry cuz i was friggin' scared. and it could've been worse, i could've had THESE nails, instead of my short, demure ones
and then his pain would've been both physical AND mental.
he probably should've said, "thank you for keeping your nails so short and for helping me realize there was a storm of fierce magnitude going on outside. you're the bestest wife ever."
so then, all within miliseconds, i hear a sniffle and as the next lightning flash come thru our window
what did i see?
seriously, it could've been straight out of a horror flick!
this silent, ninja child that somehow floated in without my ears detecting her was at the side of my bed, scared of the thunder.
"Lily, it's ok, we heard the thunder too, it's just thunder" i say as i hesitantly pat her arm, making sure she's not really a horror, demon ghost child
" i know but it's so loud it scared me", she sniffled.
"it scared me too, it's alright go back to bed, you'll be fine"
no, i didn't walk her to bed becuz between the freakish loud thunder and the freakish silent, horror child i almost peed my pants, which can happen when i sneeze, but still.
i wasn't leaving my perfectly safe bed.
so then the rain started and the wind picked up and the raindrops were hitting the window so violently i thought maybe our window would shatter.
and every time it would lightning i'd hold my breath and PRAY the thunder would be quieter and further away so I wouldn't be scared, ...i mean Lily...so Lily wouldn't be scared and come back in and interrupt my beauty sleep, Lord knows i need it!
Needless to say it was a rough night, luckily it didn't storm for too terribly long and it was nothing compared to the devastation on the east coast, but still to have Mother Nature throwin' her weight around this way and letting the whole world know that "I am woman, here me ROAR", someone must've really made Mother Nature, MAD.
i'm betting it was Justin Bieber,
for producing a nail polish color before she ever could.
shame on you Beiber, ladies first.
