wednesday morning yoshi and i were lying in the futon--i was trying to fall back asleep and he was trying to wake up--when a rather strong aftershock hit. the house started to shake, and i thought it wouldn't be too bad but then it kept getting stronger and stronger! yoshi jumped over me and grabbed the baby, but really, what can you do. nothing was damaged, just a couple of things in the bathroom fell down. lucky, really. then there was another strong aftershock about three hours later. not really exciting, but not boring around here, either.
