Give me a second...

It's the Tuesday after a long weekend and my mind isn't right yet.

At least it's a short work week.

Last night at approximately 11:30 (my bed time is as soon as Rachel Zoe is over), my smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector started beeping/talking (beep beep low battery) at 45 minute intervals. When I tried to disassemble the thing, the alarm started going off. Once I finally got the alarm to shut up, it resumed telling me that it's battery was low.

So yeah, I'm not awake yet.

But at least it's Tuesday.

Why does it seem that alarms and low battery beeps sound off when your enjoying your sleep or trying to fall asleep..I tell ya, just about enough to piss you off!

Smooches,

Yay for Tuesday! I'm still half asleep today as well, but that is my own fault for staying up too late in "holiday weekend" mode!

Here's hoping for a better rest of the week!

jeez this sounds like the friends episode when Pheobe's alarm keeps going off so she smashes it to pieces.

Alarms are a love/hate thing aren't they! I had my oven on automatic to cook something that wouldn't be done until like 3a. Well I thought it would just shut off -- NO, it beeped, beeped, beeped until I got up!

Ughhhhh. That stinks. The dude was like a little alarm every half an hours from 5:30 this morning, so I feel your pain!

Eww.. I totally hear you on the alarm thing. I was taking a nap at the ole' boy's house yesterday and his roommate's cell alarm is on full blast going off for an hour! The roommate sleeps through anything and was wasted so that's all I heard for an hour, until I told Chris to turn it off!

Damn things!

That reminds me of that episode of Friends where Pheobe smashes hers and puts it down the garbage schute, then gets in trouble with the fire department. Probably not as funny experiencing it first hand. I hope you get better sleep tonight.

Not even kidding. Our smoke detector did this late last week at about 4:30 in the morning. Of course, the FI didn't hear it (and I'm the heavy sleeper). I swore that thing beeped every 20 minutes and so I had to practically break it to get it open and throw that battery out. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep either. Bleh.

How frustrating! Sorry friend.

Ugh. My smoke alarm in my apt used to randomly go off all the time. Super annoying. I feel your pain!
