This has been a weird week (and then some). First I rush my Mom to the hospital on Mother’s Day, then an aunt of ours also ends up in the hospital. After a hectic week of hospital visits, work and everything else I take a night off only to get a call from my dad that he is running a fever (his fine but since he suffers from asthma, any sniffle can lead to pneumonia, so it’s antibiotics for him).
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – A moderate earthquake struck Puerto Rico early Sunday, damaging some houses in western and northern towns and causing a rock slide on a highway. No one was reported injured.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude-5.8 earthquake struck at 1:16 a.m. (0516 GMT) Sunday about four miles (six kilometers) from the small community of Espino on the western side of the U.S. Caribbean island and 63 miles (101 kilometers) from the capital, San Juan, where it was felt by high-rise dwellers.
Yeah, an earthquake. A moderate one, no major damage, but still it upped the weirdness factor to 11 (that’s 10+1, because life can always go one number higher)! Oh and then on Sunday, another uncle of mine had a heart attack and ended up in the same hospital as my Mom.
It was one of those weeks.
Yes it was THAT weird, besides I needed the pick me up.
