I Feel The Earth Move Under My Feet

“I feel the earth move under my feet” and not in a Carol King sort of way.

I have hesitated to say anything because I was hoping it would stop or I would figure out a reasonable explanation. But it hasn’t stopped, it’s gotten worse. And, its starting to make me nervous and well….. nervous enough to mention it here.

What the hell am I talking about? With all the hype about the world coming to an end in less than a month and all the natural disasters happening all over the world I didn’t want to appear paranoid. BUT!!!!
I have been stocking up on emergency supplies, my only dilemma is figuring out where to store them that I will be able to get to them should disaster strike.

The reason for my fear that the puppies and I will be in need of emergency preparedness is the damn earth keeps moving!! Ever since I have been in this trailer I can feel it shaking. Now, if the dogs get going on a good scratching of their ears or something it can make the trailer shake, or if a truck drives by the trailer will shake so it doesn’t take much to get it moving. But I am talking both dogs are sound asleep, it’s the middle of the night so no traffic and the trailer is moving. I thought maybe something walking on the trailer but the dogs are hyper alert to anything outside and I would hear the sound of it walking on the trailer but no, it is silent and the trailer moves.

I am sitting at the kitchen table, not walking around, it can happen day or night and it is enough to make the cupboard doors swing it they are open. I never feel it if I am outside, and I doubt anyone else would feel it if they are in a house, but because I am in a little trailer I feel it.

It happens a dozen times a day. It was happening before the earth quake on the coast so it isn’t just after shocks.

I have visions of the earth opening up right where the trailer is parked and the puppies and I being sucked into the center of the earth. As long as I have my puppies I will be ok.

It’s kinda unnerving in the middle of the night when the trailer starts rocking, I keep waiting for the “big one”.

Years ago when I lived at Cultus Lake I was living in a little cabin that was built on stilts. One night Kris was in bed and I was watching TV when it sounded like a train was coming down the road and then the house started rocking, I could feel the wave of the earth moving under the house. That was scary and it took me a few seconds to realize it was an earthquake. There were a few small after shocks and that is what this shaking feels like.

Does any one have any idea why the earth would be moving so much? Does the earth move before an earth quake?

I think I have enough on my plate without adding a nature disaster into the mix!!

Any ideas why the earth is moving??

    Well, they say, that the 12212012 “thing” is partly being caused by the “magnetic poles” shifting. The crust of the earth would be moving slightly with the “shifting’… Just what I have read. I am soooooo far south of you in the deep south of the US but I too have felt strange things lately. As if there is some slight motion. Was just sitting here reading you blog ( to me is is like a story, but so much better…………….thank you for writing it! ) and something “fell” out in the kitchen. No one there. Happened last night too, my daughter was in my room visitng and for no reason her door shut. Slight movements. Maybe it IS related to the phenomenon that they say is coming, I dunno.

    I have been thinking alot about that lately, in relation to why women like us are attracted….drawn to N’s. Maybe we just “feel” things that others don’t? A super sensativity to “things”, like pain that the N has inside himself that he doesn’t even know is there? Perhaps, we sense that pain , right from the start and want to make it better? And then take on that pain for him? And, oh man, is he/ them ever happy to let us to do it!!!! The more he hurts ( even though he isn’t aware he does ) the more he makes us hurt? Just a rambling thought………

    You are a life saver Carrie, just know that. I spend every waking moment I can reading here. It helps so much……..more than you will ever know 🙂

    If the earth splits apart and we all fall into a bottomless it, I want to fall where ever you are , just so I can give you a big hug, and say thank you. Besides, if anyone is going to survive it, ex partners of N’s will, we know how to survive, don’t we???????

      Elaine! You are a doll!! So sweet to want to fall into the same bottomless pit as me so you can hug me!! That’s so cute. I am so happy you can find some comfort here reading my “story”.

      You might be onto something with your theory about us “feeling” things. A lot of weird stuff went on when I was with JC, ghosts, boxes with green slime, it was like he was connected to some other dimension. I could always feel his pain, he would build a fire and stand there just staring at it or hours, I’d try to find out what was wrong and he would just say nothing. But he looked so sad. He never seemed happy once we were together for a while. On occasion we would go out and have fun but when we got home he would shut down, go in his shop and stay there all night. I always knew when he was up to something, it would drive me insane until I figured it out but the truth always came out eventually.

      You know? With a normal relationship if you have a really good time while you’re out you usually go home and carry on; have sex or snuggle or something but with him it was like there was a switch he turned off when we pulled in the driveway or on the way home. By the time we were home he acted like he hated me.

      I felt like I was a one night stand that forgot to go home and he was sick of me and just wanted me to drop off the face of the earth. Which brings me back to us falling into the centre of the earth again. I would feel a lot better to have all my friends from her with me that’s for sure. Yes we all are survivors that’s for sure, we’ve danced with the devil, nothing can be worse than that.

        Yes!!! The fire thing, wonder if they all do that? Stare into it for hours? My ex hubby N did that, had a fire thing. Remember on particular cold, freezing winter night years ago in the beautiful house we owned , he told me to build a fire in the fireplace while he laid on the couch. THEN, as was usual, yelled at me for not making a ” good enough” fire. The same mantra, I just never did anything right, ya know? He finally got his butt off the couch to show me how to really make one. The expert!!!! Had it roaring. A few minutes later, I heard this roaring sound like a plane landing on the roof. Fire sirens in the distance. The flames were shooting out the top 20 foot in the air! He jumped up, looked like he hated me and grabbed his keys to move his fairly new truck in the garage down the street so the fire wouldn’t touch it. All while we had 2 little kids upstairs sleeping. They were not a priority like the truck was. The house was saved, but so much else was lost 😦 Like respect………..

        More recently, my daughter’s N, that lived with us when she was pregnant for their child used to build a fire in the backyard and just stand there and stare into the flames, for hours, I think he was communicating with the devil himself. More on him later………..

        Have a great day Carrie! You deserve it.

          As a side note, as I have been reading responses, there appears to be another “Elaine”. To avoid confusion, mostly for myself, for here forth I shall be “Ellie” 🙂

    were are you in a trailer park. the land could be boggy. or the wind?
    I dont think the earth will end anytime soon but if it did it would solve a whole lot of problems,,, ha ha it can be as simple as someone slaming a car door shut that can cause your trailer to rattle. do you have a friend with a garage? where you could store some stuff?
