    9/3/2016 11:22:23 AM, by PROVERBS31JULIA

    Random thoughts today - Was asleep-ish when the earthquake hit a few hours ago this morning. I thought my husband was having a bad case of restless legs. But, I was at that stage where I wanted to go back to sleep and not go ahead and wake up enough to be able to talk and say "honey, are your l... Read more

    Today, I was looking at my recent emoji list to send a reply back to my husband. I saw the round blue ball thing with the grey bottom, and couldn't decide what it was.
