A Rude Awakening {SOL Day #10: 3-10-15}



It's 4:00 in the morning.

An alarm sounds...

But it's not coming from my clock.

It's coming from the smoke detectors.

          Wahhhh....Wahhhh...Wahhhh....

The dogs fly under the bed.

My husband and I throw back the covers

         Struggling incomprehensibly to figure out what is going on.

           {We seem to be walking in circles...}


My teenagers children wander out of their room,

            Annoyed

That the smoke detectors are going off....again.


We had this problem two weeks ago --

The alarm would go off ... just because.  {no fire}

       Always at night

               {Why is that???}



A good dusting and new batteries later

We assumed the problem was fixed.


It wasn't.


So this morning, the smoke detector was also my alarm clock.


Such a rude awakening.

  2. From spring awakenings to rude awakenings...geesh! Seems like a crazy alarm clock, but happy it was just a battery issue. Here's hoping tomorrow you hear bird chirping ;)
