Fire alarm incident


Last Tuesday I had a little bit of excitement at my house. I have a ADT security system in my home and it also includes the fire alarm. I have had several incidents that have set off the fire alarm. It is outside my bathroom door so if you open the door and the bathroom is steamy, it sets if off. I have learned to turn the exhaust fan on and not open the door right away and I haven't had it go off for about 1 1/2 years. The last time it went off my Mom accidentally set it off while I was in London.

When it gets warmer outside, I often will take a shower with the door open. It was rather chilly in my house that day but I decided to take a shower with the door open. As I was trying to rinse shampoo out of my hair, the fire alarm went off! I try to get the excess water out of my hair before walking to the kitchen to grab the phone. They always call to make sure it is a true fire or not before calling the fire department. I got the phone and no phone call. I waited and then realized I had a voicemail from ADT. Then they call me again and I explain that everything was fine. They told me that they had notified the fire department since I didn't answer the phone! I told them to please cancel the fire department but they said it was up to the fire department to make that decision.

I jump back in the shower since I had to be at work. I had to rush just in case the fire department did come. I didn't want them breaking my door down and me naked in the shower!! I get out of the shower and walk down the hallway to see that the fire truck is in front of my house! 4 fire men are walking towards my door and giving my house a look over. I was in a towel and didn't really want to answer the door but I did. I told them I was sorry that they came out but their wasn't a fire and I tried to tell that to ADT. I was embarrassed! Phoebe was so excited that people had come to our house. Silly pup! Then I was rushing to get ready for work! I was able to make it to work without being late.

I just hope that I don't set the fire alarm off again like that!

Scrappy Goodness!

This morning I was woke up early by Miss Phoebe. Not unusual but I decided to just stay awake since I have been trying to be "normal" since I am on vacation. I spent the morning venturing on 2peas and found the cutest coffee cup album! It is actually a digital file that you print out and put together. I have printed it out and going to work on printing photos and gathering embellishments! I have an idea of what photos I want to use. I just hope I can find them. I am going to work on this tomorrow at my scrapbook meetup group! :-)

The weather has been nice but windy today. I have had a hard time staying awake! I did lay down for a bit but it didn't help. Being on a normal schedule is difficult when you work the night shift. I hope I will be able to sleep good tonight and wake up refreshed tomorrow! It always takes me a few days to get back on track.

I took Phoebe for a walk around the neighborhood. I thought it would help wake me up and she just loves taking walks! When it starts getting hot outside, I don't take her for walks since pugs get overheated easily. We need to enjoy it while we can! I have been taking her on longer walks than I normally do. She starts out not wanting to heel and halfway through, she is heeling walking like she is ready to be done!

I am chilling at the Mudhouse. I didn't think they would be open since it is Easter. I remember in the past them being closed. I was happy when I found out they were open. I figured they wouldn't be that busy and they are packed!

Vacation time!

I am ready! I have about 1 1/2 weeks off from work and hoping to reconnect with my camera, scrapbook and do a little traveling. The main reason for my vacation is for CKC-St. Louis which is next weekend! I am meeting up with friends in St. Louis to scrap for 3 days and to attend a few classes and shop at CKC. I can't wait!

It appears that the weather is going to be a little rainy when I am off. The first day of my vacation it rained all day. I really think mother nature has my schedule and that is the days the weather turns icky. I haven't been awake all day yet and enjoy the outdoors. The weather does seem to be cooperating better today but I also have to much stuff going on!

I actually need to start getting ready for adventure #1 which includes scrapbooking! I am going to the LSS for super saver scrapbooking. It is always a fun time but I need to finish getting ready and get supplies together.
