And I ask myself . . .

Why is it, do you think, that smoke detector batteries only die, thus causing the smoke detector to beep periodically until you unplug it, between the hours of three and five in the morning? Why is it always during the hours where you are most likely to be in deep sleep mode, causing you to wake up to a beeping alarm in a state of intense confusion and grogginess, leading to disorganized panic? Why can't they ever die at, say, 6:20 p.m.? Hmmm?

The sad thing is, this happened very early Saturday morning and my sleep schedule STILL isn't back on track yet. Grrr!

To your Grrr, I raise another Grrr. I'm sorry! You two need some good sleep, and need to quit waking each other up too! That was funny!

Normally, I would agree with you about the uncanny timing of smoke alarm batteries to die only when one is deeply and restfully asleep. However, I did come home one afternoon this summer to a beeping alarm, so the death-in-the-night is not an absolute rule. I hope the next time something dies beeping, it happens at a more convenient time.

:) Happy sleeping!
