Not a Happy Camper

At 4 am............ yes you read that right - 4 F&#!King AM - i awoke to a BEEP........ BEEP........ BEEP........... BEEP.

It took a while for the noise to register - it wasn't my alarm clock - it wasn't the doorbell - it wasn't the neighbour's........ WTF was that noise????

My Fire alarm??? Couldn't be I changed the damn thing over the Christmas break.  

I quite literally stumbled down the stairs with sleepy eyes and heart racing.... grabbed the flashlight - cause ya know the security panel is in the cupboard where no one can see it.. where it is always dark... and reading the display screen is next to impossible - to see Zone 5 Fire.  

Well the house wasn't on fire.  So as I sit here typing this with my first cup of coffee of the day - listening to the constant BEEP......... BEEP...........BEEP.......BEEP.........I am guessing the damn batteries need to be changed ........... AGAIN.

Ask me if I am happy........ go on I dare you !!  I double dare you !!

Once I am awake enough to be half civilized...... I will call the damn alarm company and verify it is the batteries in the smoke / fire detector. Get them to take me off line.  Then I will find the 2 9volt batteries I need - then I will drag a kitchen chair into the hallway - turn all the F*#!King lights on so I can half see the damn thing...... fight and struggle to get the damn top off the damn fire / smoke detector - fight to get the damn batteries out - fight to get the new damn batteries in........ then the biggest fight of all - trying to get the damn top back on the damn fire/smoke detector...... then punching in codes - twice - then call the damn company back and get them to put me back on line.



Damn I didn't need this today............ this week.............. didn't need it at ALL ........... grrrrrrrrrr


Welcome to 4 o'clock in the F*#!King morning in the Great White North !!!

Oooh someone got up on the wrong side of the bed! LOL Sorry couldn't resist... know an unexpected super early AM awakening can frustrate especially with the added beep...beep...beep...etc...
Have a great day!

Being so involved with education, you will be aware that every class has a little boy who just cannot turn down a dare. In my class it was me. So I'm very sorry but...

Are you happy?
