We rang in the New year and went to bed late- or earlier about 1:30- 2 ish.
I was sleeping and dreaming- chirp- and I was thinking- chirp- what is that sound- chirp. There it is again-chirp.
Is it the cell phone-chirp.
It was 4 am and I was in a stupor-chirp.
I found it was the smoke detector, which is wired directly into the house- chirp.
I did what I always do and called my sleeping mate.
Mark- the smoke alarm is chirping- chirp.
He was up and at it in no time- chirp.
We replace the batteries- like we all should do every year not every 3 years. We were way over due.
Climb back into bed and as we dozed off- it went chirp-chirp real fast.
What the hey???
Back out of bed- could it be carbon dioxide? Why did it chirp-chirp???
Mark put on a coat and went to check the heater- all was good there.
We were both awake and he was willing to "stand guard" while I slept- finally I thought it must be resetting its self come back to bed.
No more chirps and we slept in until 9:30-
We are both on high alert after a fire in the studio this year.
It does not take much for the antenna to go up.
But- we need to relax and have hope and optimism for 2009.
There are many good things coming- I know it.
So- change your batteries in the smoke detectors today!
It will make me sleep better.
