A noise in the night


Beep................................................................................Beep.....................................................Beep.......... now I am awake and imagining that this small noise I hear in my sleep is the carbon monoxide detector and I am just about to fall asleep into the sleep of death. I felt tired enough and was sure I couldn't move at all. I imagined what I was going to do if it was. Would I try to get the kids out or should I just call 911? I wasn't sure how much time we might have. I got up and looked at the carbon monoxide detector. It had a green light and everything seemed to be okay. I wasn't sure what else it could be but in my sleepy state it didn't occur to me that it could be the smoke detector.

Finally I went back to bed and almost fell asleep only to hear the beep again. I woke up Cameron who wasn't awake even after all these beeps and he found the smoke detector and took the battery completely out. Now my question to everyone is why does the battery ALWAYS go bad at night? I have never had it go bad in the day but only when I am sleeping. I guess maybe I should just change the battery every six months. ...

That is a very good question. Mine always goes out at night too. Crazy.
I loved Ali's party ideas! It looks like the kids hard a blast. I bet they loved dressing up.

AMEN to that. We took our battery out and never put it back. Maintenance came like 4 months later and was annoyed. ooops.
